Rating: 10/10

I do not even know where to start with this movie. I attended on
opening day with my cousins and the theater was packed. I went with
high expectations, and honestly, I was not disappointed one bit. This
film contains the most hilarious and lively jokes I have ever witnessed
in any movie. Melissa McCarthy is definitely worthy of a comedy crown
with her role. The screenplay was brilliantly written from beginning to
end. Do not go into the theater with a low tolerance for jokes, because
you will quickly leap out of your seat. For anyone who is looking for
an original, highly enjoyable, and fresh comedy flick, The Heat will
satisfy in every aspect. I am definitely purchasing the hopefully
unrated DVD the day it becomes available, and I really look forward to
seeing a sequel and possible series. I can honestly say that this was
the most hilarious film I have ever seen. And by the sound of the rest
of the audience, many of them would possibly agree. Definitely a solid
