Twitter Capsule: Well, we'll always have The Heat. Overproduced and badly written; makes iffy original seem tight. Wastes better cast.

VOR:   The sheer, trend-setting fact of its being made and the repugnant, trend-imperiling hostility to its existence are the movie's points of value. As a film, it has... none?
