FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a long-standing reputation for excellence -- and arrogance.

    Melissa McCarthy is unstoppable and Sandra Bullock plays against type as the uptight straight man in this hilarious buddy pic. It\'s freakin sweet to see a buddy cop movie w/2 chicks! I laughed my face off! A Beverly Hills cop bro-mance, but with women.

    This movie was way more funny than I expected there really wasn\'t a moment I stopped laughing. The fat woman plays the same role in every movie she\'s in though.
