An uptight FBI agent and a crude Boston cop team up to topple a mysterious Russian drug lord in this summer flick. Sounds familiar, right? Sounds like every other buddy-cop flick since the invention of both flicks and buddies. Here’s the twist: The two agents are played by Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Women! In leading roles! Cast in a summer blockbuster, no less! And they’re funny! Holy fuck, I think I’ve burned all my bras (that’s a metaphor for death) and gone to saggy-titted feminist heaven. Grab a sack of popcorn and join me there. (See Movie Times: thestranger.com/film)
