“The Heat” has all the elements you’d expect from a buddy cop movie — the oil-and-water partnership, the car chases, the wisecracks — and a few you wouldn’t — for instance, a scene involving Spanx.
Faithfully conforming to the macho genre made famous by movies such as “Bad Boys” and “Lethal Weapon,” “The Heat” is also — curiously — summer’s only studio film built around female leads: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.
“If someone asks what you wanna do and you don’t really wanna work, you pick the most farfetched thing,” Bullock said. “This was it, a pairing where everyone was equal and you had these storylines that weren’t girly…. It had depth and humor and balls and action. It was just something I saw the boys getting to do.”
Sandy is busy promoting her new movie ‘Chelsea Lately’ and this week she was guest on Chelsea Lately. You can find the full interview on Youtube (can’t embed it), and also screen captures up in the gallery.
Thanks to my friend Haylie for the high quality video – which will be uploaded later!
With “The Heat” release coming up we added additional production stills and the movie posters in our gallery.
Sandra attended the Berlin photocall for “The Heat” earlier today. First photos are up in the gallery.
