Everyone loves Melissa McCarthy. With a massive hit under her belt already in 2013 thanks to "Identity Thief" (which has remarkably earned over $130 million at the box office), and having hosted "Saturday Night Live" to some acclaim recently, the actress is looking to ride that momentum into "The Heat" this summer. It's a cop comedy but perhaps unlike one we've seen before with McCarthy pairing up with none other than Sandra Bullock and the first clip from the movie has arrived.

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in The Heat

Everyone loves Melissa McCarthy. With a massive hit under her belt already in 2013 thanks to "Identity Thief" (which has remarkably earned over $130 million at the box office), and having hosted "Saturday Night Live" to some acclaim recently, the actress is looking to ride that momentum into "The Heat" this summer. It's a cop comedy but perhaps unlike one we've seen before with McCarthy pairing up with none other than Sandra Bullock and the first clip from the movie has arrived.

Is there a plot to this movie? From what we've seen so far the answer seems to be: not really. Instead, the Paul Feig directed flick, at least for now, seems to be a string of gags highlighting their odd couple behaviour. We're sure at one point they'll have to tackle The Big Case where they'll learn to be friends and get respected by their peers etc. As we'll see in this clip, their unorthodox methods can be dangerous if you're on the receiving end of it.

"The Heat" will interrogate you on June 28th.
