We’ve seen a number of mismatched buddy-cop movies with male leads, most notably 48 Hours, Men In Black and Beverly Hills Cop. Finally movie makers have hit upon the idea that this genre just might work with females in the lead.
They nailed it by partnering Sandra Bullock as the uptight FBI agent and Melissa McCarthy as the streetwise Boston cop. They played off one another with great finesse and made The Heat one of the funniest movies this year. The antics between the two left the audience roaring in laughter on a number of occasions.
However, it wasn’t all just slapstick humor. There is actually a good story underneath it all that makes everything come together wonderfully.
RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and our resident movie celebrity/trivia expert. If you’ve taken a RunPee Quiz, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
