Blu-ray Review: The Heat

by Dan Koelsch

The buddy cop comedy The Heat has its home release today, where you can get it on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. For a full review of the movie itself, check out our writer Christopher’s take from when the movie was released in theaters. My opinion is pretty similar, so I’ll go over the Blu-ray itself after the break.

The Heat stars Sandra Bullock as an uptight FBI who has to team up with a foul-mouthed Boston cop played by Melissa McCarthy. The theatrical cut is Rated R for good reason, but the unrated version on the Blu-ray pushes the boundaries even further. What struck me the most was how many extras were included. There are six separate gag reels (some of which are only one scene) that are all introduced by director Paul Feig, who is having a great time hamming it up for the cameria. There are also five different commentaries. I love the fact that there is a Mystery Science Theater 3000 commentary with Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, and J. Elvis Weinstein, since that is one of my favorite shows. There is also an option to turn on audio of the premiere screening so you can join along in all the cheers and laughs of the audience.

As to be expected, there is also a “Making of” featurette, but there are two funny bits with Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo as Gina and Beth, respectively. All together, this is an impressive release for a hilarious film.
