Ashburn was an FBI agent that was extremely ambitious and did not get along with her co-workers. she was sent to Boston to uncover the identity of a drug lord named Larkin by tracking down his men. after arriving at the destination, she found that one of Larkin's men was in custody. she interrogated him and came across Mullins, a police officer. Mullins was very territorial and not exactly sociable as well. the duo was later forced to work together in order to solve the case.
the combination of putting together a serious cop with a crazy cop was absolutely splendid. having watched a second film by Melissa McCarthy, i found myself even more in love with her loud attitude. majority of the scenes targeted comedies, which sometimes turned out well sometimes doesn't. among the duo, it was easy to root for Mullins but difficult, sometimes even impossible to like Ashburn. fortunately in overall, the film was highly entertaining and filled with enough serious actions and unexpected twists to make it felt real than forced.
