Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is an agent that does not play well with other especially her fellow agents, she believes herself a one woman show and that all others are just there to back her up whenever she puts out the call. Agent Ashburn gets sent up to Boston to hunt down a who is setting up shop in Boston. Agent Ashburn runs into one small problem Detective Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) who does not take crap from anyone not even her boss and definitely not some stuck up Federal Agent from New York. So of course they are forced to work together and track down this new drug kingpin and stop him.
Sorry this movie just didn’t do it for me. Yes there are some parts where I laughed at the jokes but over all this movie fizzled out for me. One thing that stood out to me was Melissa McCarthy’s character just would not last long on the force in this day and age. She is using excessive force and enchanted interrogation that would just get the case thrown out of court. Not to mention all the harassment cases that her coworkers would file against her and lets not even bring up how she handles her boss.
Then we have Sandra Bullocks character which don’t get me wrong she played Special Agent Ashburn really well but to me its a character we have seen from her before, that stuck up I am better than you attitude but by the end of the movie I will come to realize that I really need a partner.
Besides the two main characters there is no reason for this movie to be two hours long it just seemed to drag on and on. Oh did I forget to mention Marlon Wayans is in this movie? But they regulate him to a background character and barely use his comedic talent.
