Melissa McCarthy has won everyone’s hearts, so Saturday Night Live host is looking to ride that momentum into The Heat this summer with none other than Sandra Bullock.
Therefore, the first clip from the buddy-cop comedy has arrived.
When the wrong tone results in an uncooperative witness, he finds himself trapped within an unorthodox method – dangling by his ankles over a balcony and the women just can’t seem to hold on.
The chemistry between McCarthy and Bullock is almost enough to carry the movie by itself – the plot is secondary.
Directed by Bridesmaids’ Paul Feig, The Heat will interrogate you on June 28th, 2013.
Check out the clip below to watch the disastrous results.
Here’s the synopsis for The Heat:
Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence–and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.’s “finest,” is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, the director of “Bridesmaids.”
