Too much swearing. I love these actresses Bullock and McCarthy but the script and/or writers for this movie did not give them good material to work with. :(

I'm not sure exactly what is my opinion about this movie. I kind of hate it and like it at the same time. I like it because I was about to cry from laughing in some scenes, like when Sandra Bullock tries to save the choking man and when Melissa M. tries to make Sandra look sexy by cutting off parts from her clothes. I laughed in a crazy way at this scene! The thing that made the movie kind of bad was the bad words. There were a lot of bad words. I think that the movie would be better if there were less bad words and then the movie would be appropriate for all ages.

The Heat is a hilarious action movie about an FBI agent and a local cop who are working together on a case but they absolutely hate each other at first. As the movie progresses, they get to know and understand each other better and soon enough become the best of friends. Sandra Bullock and Melissa Mccarthy are both renowned and absolutely amazing actresses that flawlessly bring their characters in this movie to life. There is a lot of foul language and violence so I would recommend this movie for older teens, so around 16 or 17 and over.

The movie The Heat is a comedy movie. It is for ages 16 and above because it had a lot of bad words and some bad scenes. If I would rate this movie out of 10 stars I would choose 7 or 6 because it was funny and I liked the ending but the bad words were a lot - that's why I didn't like it. This movie made me laugh actually a lot because both of the characters were really good. If this movie had less bad words it would be better and more fun to watch and younger kids like 14 will be able to watch it too.

I love both of these women (but especially Melissa McCarthy, she plays tough and scary SO well), put them together and they're just nuts.

I am a fan of Bullock, and McCarthy. but I hardly laughed. Vulgar language / swear words usually gets a chuckle out of me when used by anyone. Not this time.
Good action scenes and good cast. Too bad there was a missing element.

I really enjoy a movie that makes me laugh out loud. I'm still laughing two days later.

It was fun and touching.
I'm impressed by the two main actresses' performances.
I recommend this movie, and personally, I liked it very much.

Funny movie, and I'm not a MM fan at all. Not as good as Miss Congeniality, but still LOL.

Too many 'F' words. The word looses it's effect when it is said several times in every sentence spoken. Love Sandra Bullock, usually, but not in this movie!
