FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) -- the Fed -- and Boston cop Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) -- the Fuzz -- couldn't be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.

From DGA Award winner and Emmy® nominee Paul Feig, the director of Bridesmaids (worldwide theatrical gross: almost $300 million), THE HEAT takes a look at the odd couple pairing of two law enforcement officials who, to their everlasting shock, slowly find themselves on the same page. Starring Oscar®-winner Sandra Bullock, whose films have grossed $2.9 billion worldwide, and Academy Award® nominee Melissa McCarthy, who has had two consecutive smash hit comedies -- Bridesmaids and Identity Thief -- in as many years, THE HEAT has bawdy laughs and real emotional stakes.
