Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.

2013 Guide Analysis: ""Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig has recruited his scene stealer Melissa McCarthy to team with Sandra Bullock on this female buddy cop comedy which will either sink or swim depending upon the pair's chemistry. Bullock plays an uptight FBI special agent who is paired with testy and gruff Boston cop (McCarthy) in order to take down a ruthless drug lord. It should be a solid hit, but a recent trailer was very low on the laughs despite the actresses trying their best. Hopefully there's some decent material in the final product to support them."
