First trailer for The Heat starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy brings the comedic, er, heat

Last time director Paul Fieg led a female-driven comedy he churned out the mega-successful BRIDESMAIDS.  Now, the director returns to that formula with THE HEAT, starring Sandra Bullock and BRIDESMAIDS-alum Melissa McCarthy.  It's smart casting, to be sure, as Bullock has shined as a comedy actress more so than a dramatic one (even if she won an Oscar for a dramatic role), and McCarthy has been on fire with her blend of comedic antics since BRIDESMAIDS hit. 

You're under arrest, sugar!:

This looks like a win to me.  I'm a fan of Bullock and McCarthy has won me over as well.  More than anything, this just looks like a good time with some funny women, which is something many of us could use in our lives.  I'm onboard.

Here's a synopsis:

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.”

THE HEAT, starring Bullock, McCarthy, Demian Bichir, Tony Hale, Taran Killam, and Michael Rapaport will hit the beat on April 5, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I'm glad to see Bullock in roles like this as I think they fit her well, but she's got crossover appeal. Look forward to seeing her in Cuaron's Gravity.

This looks pretty funny, and I think McCarthy is a pretty funny actress! I don't want to sound mean, but I guess were supposed to suspend belief that she's a cop though (she is a bit on the heafty side).

As a fan of buddy/cop movies (of which there has been a noticeable drought of good ones lately), this looks promising. I like the way McCarthy doesn't play token fat person, even when her part is written that way.

This does look pretty funny. It's been a while since I've seen Bullock in anything, and I am also a big fan. Seems like a winning team to me, helps that McCarthy is absolutely hilarious.
