That's what 'Arrested Development' star Tony Hale shouts from the back of Melissa McCarthy's broken down jalopy of a police car as she goes through the motions of an uninteresting chase sequence.
"Hoo boy," I mutter. "We're in for another 'Identity Thief' here" - a movie where physical comedy and riff-heavy music cues will have to suffice instead of any real wit. But something happens about 10 minutes into 'The Heat,' the latest comedy from 'Bridesmaids' director Paul Feig. McCarthy's Detective Mullins loudly and brashly bursts into a room and meets Sandra Bullock's Special Agent Ashburn.
The chemical reaction is instantaneous. McCarthy and Bullock, both naturally funny people, feed off one another and crackle as one of the best comedy pairings since John Cleese and Michael Palin. 'The Heat' is a decent movie; McCarthy and Bullock are outstanding.

'Identity Thief' raked in big time at the box office due mostly to the comedic pairing of Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, and now the film is poised to hit shelves on DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, June 4. Well, guess what? We've got five, bridezilla-sized, Bateman-McCarthy-themed prize packs to shell out, including a copy of 'Identity Thief'!
We've been hearing a lot of news about sequels recently (including '21 Jump Street 2' and 'Fast and Furious 7'), but those have been for hit films or are continuing a franchise that has already proved successful enough to rush. Today it's been announced that studios are working on sequels for 'The Heat' and 'Ride Along,' two films that haven't even hit theaters yet.
There are few films coming out this summer that have us more excited than Paul Feig's 'The Heat,' which looks like it'll be a delightful shot to the arm of the buddy cop genre. Of course, a buddy cop movie is only as good as the actors playing those buddy cops, but a handful of new images from the film have arrived online and they make stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy look like the comedy duo to beat this year.
Just when we thought we couldn't be more excited for 'The Heat,' a new clip pops up online and reminds us that this looks like the comedy to beat this summer. Let's be honest here: how could you not be looking forward to a buddy cop comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and directed by Paul Feig? Your answer to that will determine whether or not you like laughing.
Watching last night's 'Saturday Night Live,' we can't help but wonder how many episodes of 'The Voice' the writers had to watch so they could properly skewer a show they obviously find ridiculous. Although host Melissa McCarthy is technically the lead of the sketch, it's mostly an excuse for the cast to break out their impressions of the singing competition's hosts with some very funny results. Watch it below!
Last night's 'Saturday Night Live' saw 'Bridesmaids' and 'Identity Thief' star Melissa McCarthy hosting the beloved sketch comedy show for the second time and she entered with a bang.
