Not the best scripted movie but still fun to watch, especially if you like the comic acting of Melissa MccARTHY & Sandra Bullock. This is a film that my husband and I could enjoy together. Lots of action and funny. However, if you are offended by 'bad' language, this would not be the movie for you.

I wished I could have given this 5 stars because, as usual, Sandra Bullock was incredibly funny, in this case playing straightlaced, uptight, know-it-all FBI agent Sarah Ashburn. Melissa McCarthy also played her character well - a foul mouthed, tough, slobbish cop named Shannon Mullins, who intimidated everyone around her with her excessive use of the F word. (You have been warned by others and now me. Let me state that again - "...excessive use of the F word" which is the main reason this movie is rated R. I'm surprised they didn't rate it "F-ing R"... but I suppose that would have given away the script.) Unfortunately the writers were not talented enough to be able to come up with a way to paint the differences between the two characters other than to have one look and behave like a professional, the other...Not; one was articulate, the other had an extremely limited vocabulary. The constant flow of foul language became way, WAY tiresome and about midpoint in the movie I was wishing it would end. But, I enjoyed Bullock's character so much, I stayed in it. For me, the best scene of the movie was when a room full of cops was slamming Officer Mullins, who was absent. Agent Ashburn finally had her say, attempting to defend Mullins. It was at that point (for me, anyway) that the difference between the two women was most obvious, and humorously so. Unfortunately, the swearing was downright obnoxious, so I withheld 2 stars.
