The Heat

The Heat Stills

From the director of Bridesmaids (Paul Feig), The Heat is another outrageous comedy with strong female leads, and the funniest film I’ve seen this summer. The film follows an uptight FBI agent (Sandra Bullock) who must partner-up with foul-mouthed, rule-breaker Detective Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) to take down a drug-lord. If you’ve seen Miss Congeniality – which I have about 70 million times – you’ll know that Bullock has this role down, and the chemistry between her and McCarthy makes for really enjoyable viewing. Although it takes a little while to really get going, The Heat had my whole screen laughing out-loud – and squealing about the memorable tracheotomy scene – especially over McCarthy’s comebacks. The supporting cast are also really good, especially Mullins’ argumentative family, and the albino DEA officer. As well as this, like Bridesmaids, it skilfully explores female friendship in a way that isn’t seen that much on screen. It may not be the best comedy of all time, but it certainly is one to see.

The fashion in the film is actually not that great, although does give handy directions on how to turn your pantsuit into a clubbing outfit if you’re not afraid of scissors… But, it does tap into the army, tough girl trend that is set to continue into AW ’13. Keep colours muted, and stick to non-shiny fabrics, but don’t be afraid to add some glam touches like heavy bracelets or a pair of earrings. So, soak up that girl power vibe and get ready to bring the heat.
