Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are teaming up for a buddy cop movie. Wow, this is probably the first time a buddy cop comedy with two women in the lead will grace the big screen. Perhaps it’ll even pass the Bechdel test. This is a sure sign that maybe funny women are gaining equal ground in the industry.
