Being the judgmental monster I am, I was ready to call it quits on The Heat after the first official trailer failed to amuse me in any way whatsoever. It just made the movie look so forced in its humor, while star Sandra Bullock stuck out like a sore thumb in a very negative way. However, I’m ready to change my tune because the international trailer for the movie has been released, and it is a lot funnier… and also very NSFW.
The Heat still looks like it’ll be completely reliant on how funny people find Melissa McCarthy, but now that this trailer has shown me that it’s not going to play it safe, joke-wise (i.e., PG-13 and tame), I’m definitely more interested in checking it out. I guess a few F-bombs can really change my mind that dramatically. Also, the fact that Thomas F. Wilson is playing a police captain in the movie helps a lot as well, since I’m a Back to the Future fanboy who loves seeing him pop up in things.

But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, director of “Bridesmaids.”
The Heat, which is directed by Bridesmaid helmer Paul Feig, hits theaters everywhere April 5th.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
