67- #DLMChallenge “The Heat”

For #67 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on April 21st I watched: The Heat.

I’m a big fan of Melissa McCarthy, but not a fan of how she is typically portrayed in films as the “fat, clumsy loser.”

This is one of the first films that began her transition into well-developed character territory; but it wasn’t until Spy that she really came into her own.

This was also a great first step in getting Director Paul Feig to land the director job for the all-female Ghostbusters film.

Still though, this was an amusing film. I found a few good laughs here, but be warned, I didn’t go into this thinking it was a comedic masterpiece, and that perspective is key.

That being said, you may find this sort of humor funny if you like either lead or Paul Feig’s writing.
