'The Heat' Trailer Is Not 'Miss Congeniality', Because Melissa McCarthy Shouts in This


I cannot be entirely certain the first 30 seconds of this is not just clips from Miss Congeniality with Benjamin Bratt skillfully CGI'd out. But those doubts aside, here is the trailer for The Heat, a new comedy from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig that once again sees Melissa McCarthy being loud and crass and mostly disgusting, sometimes in a bathroom. Sandra Bullock stars, bringing along all her leftover aviators and pantsuits from Congeniality to play another tough but by-the-books FBI agent, but instead of becoming a pageant queen, now she gets teamed with a tough but not-by-the-books local cop played by McCarthy. They do not get along at first! But then they get along and solve all the crime.
