Saturday Double Feature: The Heat (2013) and…

Saturday on the blog means Saturday Double Feature, right? Remember, the basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before.. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, but that’s part of the fun.

It’s actually a pretty quiet week in the theaters with only a couple of relatively small openings as everone gets ready for the July 4th one-two punch of The Lone Ranger and Despicable Me 2. However, one movie that did come out yesterday is the female-oriented take on the buddy-cop genre, The Heat.

Of course, there have been plenty of takes on the genre, but really, there’s only one way to go here. Ladies and gentlemen, from 1987, I bring you Mel Gibson‘s Mullet. Ummm… I mean Lethal Weapon.

I’ll admit I was initially tempted to go with In the Heat of the Night, but that really just seemed far too serious.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below, along with any ideas you might have for other pairings with The Heat or for other upcoming movies you’d like to see “double featured”. Consider it, if you will, your chance to challenge me to come up with an interesting pair.

Until next time, Happy Viewing!

    Lethal Weapon!! Dats what we call the dogs let loose in da yard… (But yes, this is the only way to go here)

  2. I like this movie. Nothing special about it, just think Sandra Bullock is still hot so.. That’s my reasoning for liking the movie I guess. Typical buddy cop film
