If you can't stand the Heat, stay out of the Kitchen (because that's where Mullins keeps her weapons)
The Heat is a 2013 action-comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. It is directed by Paul Feig.Bullock plays Sarah Ashburn, an uptight, by-the-books FBI special agent who is forced to team up with Shannon Mullins, a foul-mouthed and abrasive detective (McCarthy) in order to take down a drug lord.
Ashburn taking her neighbor's cat, to the point where she fools Mullins into thinking that is really her cat. During The Stinger, Mullins kidnaps the cat for Ashburn, only to realize that Ashburn was lying.
The drug-sniffing dog being unable to find the drugs over the smell of fresh meat.
Ashburn mistaking a large, bearded, long-haired man for Mullins when she first goes to the bar for her keys. Later, after the Binge Montage, she wakes up next to him on the table, thinking he's Mullins.
At the beginning of the movie Ashburn is channel surfing and watches a few seconds of a program demonstrating how a tracheotomy is performed before walking away from the television. Later on, Ashburn sees a man choking in a diner and takes control of the situation by calmly performing the procedure ... unsuccessfully. She panics when she puts a straw in the man's neck and blood comes out, admitting to Mullins that she doesn't really know what she's doing. At this point Mullins pounds on the man's chest, causing the obstruction to come flying out. An emergency tracheotomy is a dangerous procedure that should only be attempted after all other steps have been taken to determine if it really is necessary. Ashburn took none of these steps, as one of the paramedics implies a few minutes later while criticizing her for being so reckless.
Butt Monkey: Rojas the drug dealer. He gets chased, knocked down, terrified, dangled off a building and (accidentally) dropped onto HIS car while being questioned. Also Ashburn, it seems nothing ever goes right for her.
Subverted with the RPG, which gets a whole conversation about where it came from and how ridiculous a thing it is to keep in a fridge, and even makes it onto the film's poster, but never gets used once.
Chekhov's Gunman: Think it's weird how few lines the albino cop's partner gets? He's Larkin.
Failed Attempt at Drama: One of the things that annoys Ashburn's coworkers is her "showboating". The first sign that she's a Fish out of Water in Boston is when she tries to drive off while talking to another agent, and nearly collides with a traffic jam.
Levy:[to himself] That was so close to being cool. So close.
Fridge Of Weapons: Mullins keeps one in her apartment complete with grenades and a rocket launcher.
Gag Boobs: Subverted with Tatiana. While the dealer who led them to her described her boobs as being huge enough for the audience to expect this, they look fairly normal sized when she shows up, if accentuated by a low top.
Mullins threatens Julian with this, playing Russian Roulette until he talks.
Later, Ashburn shoots Larkin twice in the dick. Mullins is horrified — she'd never done it with an actually loaded gun.
Hahvahd Yahd In My Cah: The extremely thick Boston accents possessed by Mullins' family results in a humorous scene where one of her brothers asks Ashburn if she's a Narcnote narcotics cop — pronounced more-or-less like "knock" — and she has no idea what he's saying. It's enforced with subtitles, where it says they are saying "knock."
I Know Mortal Kombat: Subverted. Ashburn watches a video early in the movie describing how to perform an emergency tracheotomy. When a guy at a local Denny's starts choking she tries to apply what she's learned and nearly kills the guy. Turns out all he needed was a good hard whack to get the piece of pancake out. The EMT that takes the guy to the hospital chews her out for this.
I Lied: After Ashburn takes one out of Mullins' book and shoots a drug lord in the crotch, Mullins reveals that she never had any bullets in the gun during her groin Russian Roulette on a perp earlier.
Lame Pun Reaction: Ashburn's "tongue in cheek" quip when talking about a corpse who had his tongue cut out and shoved in ass. Mullins and the coroner react with an incredibly awkward silence.
Made of Iron: Rojas somehow survives a three story drop onto the hood of his car with no injuries whatsoever. The car was less lucky.
Married to the Job: Ashburn. She confides that it cost her her marriage prior to the film's events.
Missing Trailer Scene: The trailer uses an alternate version of the scene where Ashburn cuts her hand after her beer glass breaks. In the trailer, after Mullins sees the blood she faints and falls backwards on the pool table. In the film, Mullins merely laughs it off and tells Ashburn to keep her hand up.
The Mole: Adam, the DEA agent, was Larkin all along.
Not So Different: Mullins and Ashburn are both law enforcement officers that are extremely good at their jobs, but are despised by their peers due to their grating personalities. They also both have family issues.
Not So Stoic: Julian faces Ashburn in the interrogation room without breaking sweat. Then Mullins plays Russian Roulette with his balls, and he cracks by the second blank shot.
Slapstick Knows No Gender: Both Mullins and Ashburn end up on the end of some spectacular slapstick, as does any perp Mullins ends up facing, especially Rojas and Julian. And that poor guy at the Denny's...
Title Drop: Mullins says she and Ashburn are "the heat". it's a a sign of Ashburn's development when she later echoes it.
Took a Level in Badass: Ashburn, though she was pretty damn good already in regards to finding drugs etc so it's a case of her stepping up her game.
Ultimate Job Security: No one, including the captain, particularly cares for Mullins, but they're all so afraid of her that they just let her demean and talk to everyone however she pleases without any repercussions. As noted by Ashburn later, she's probably one of the most dedicated cops in existence.
Un-Person: Mullins' family effectively treats her like this after she arrested her brother Jason to the point that the family photo in their house is folded down to obscure her face. The only one who doesn't seem to feel like this is said brother, and at the end of the movie she and the rest of the family reconcile.
