I completely agree. There are a lot of hilarious stereotypes, but none that make me feel like the movie is only about men.

And most of the small parts were also played by women, including the autopsy scientist.

The Heat was one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time, without any qualifications. More than made up for what I believe was a deliberately irrelevant plot with an outstanding script and outstanding performances. Also a fantastic soundtrack.

It passes with flying colors. Most of their conversations are about anything but men. It's the ultimate buddy picture.
