WED­NES­DAY THE HEAT

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, TEN You won’t be need­ing a ther­mome­ter to take the comedic tem­per­a­ture of The Heat. While it might be an easy enough film to warm to – thanks mainly to the op­po­sites-re­pel cast­ing of San­dra Bul­lock and Melissa McCarthy – don’t go sweat­ing on too many big laughs here. Bul­lock is the stuck-up, by-the-rules one, which means McCarthy is the messy, streets­mart, renegade. Their as­sign­ment is to bring down a Bos­ton drug baron, but that’s of sec­ondary im­por­tance when there are so many so-so set-pieces to get to. Av­er­age.
