With a $229 million international box office haul, Paul Feig's modestly budgeted comedy 'The Heat' isn't just one of the biggest hits of 2013, it's the biggest film yet for stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Unfortunately, Sandra Bullock said 'The Heat 2' isn't going to happen, but we may get something else entirely. Are you ready for a spin-off featuring two of the film's supporting characters?

Reel Women: 2013 Is a Bad Year For Women at the Movies

The Heat
20th Century Fox

To say that 2013 is a bad year for women at the movies isn't saying much, considering that we've hardly had a great year at the movies for women, well, ever. Even during peak years, women are still getting the short end of the stick, but in comparison to recent years, 2013 isn't looking so great.

What happens when two new releases that look like sure-things smash into the unstoppable wall that is a Pixar movie? Well, you get one second place hit and one severe disappointment.

Reel Women: What ‘The Heat’ Can Teach Us About Friendship and Feminism

The Heat
20th Century Fox

There's this misunderstanding that feminism means blindly supporting your fellow woman for the sake of supporting women, but as Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy show us in 'The Heat,' that's not how feminism -- or friendship -- works at all.

Written by Katie Dippold and directed by Paul Feig ('Bridesmaids'), 'The Heat' follows overly-confident and alienating FBI agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) and foul-mouthed, obnoxious Boston cop Detective Mullins (McCarthy), who are unwittingly paired up to solve a string of drug-related murders. Using buddy cop theatrics usually reserved for the pairing of men, the film teaches us a lot about female friendship.

‘The Heat’ Review

The Heat review
20th Century Fox

“She's crazy!”

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.

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.
