    The Heat - Written by Katie Dippold

    Yesterday, I wrote a piece that gave my argument about why you need to go and see The Heat this weekend. What I didn't share since I was embargoed was the fact that I really liked the movie and it made me laugh so hard, harder than I have done in a long, long time.
