The Heat starring Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock is like Training Day meets The Other Guys meets Starsky and Hutch meets Paul Blart: Mall Cop meets Observe and Report. A movie this funny could have been directed by Judd Apatow, but it was actually Paul Feig. He’s the same guy that directed Bridesmaids and a host of television shows like Mad Men, The Office, 30 Rock, Weeds and Nurse Jackie, just to name a few.
Melissa McCarthy plays Detective Shannon Mullins and Sandra Bullock plays FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn. The unlikely duo teams up to take out a Boston drug king pin named Larkin. The chemistry between McCarthy and Bullock is delightful, in a Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson or Chris Farley, David Spade kind of way. [keep reading]
Competition in the auto industry is good. It’s the reason why you don’t see cars like this or this anymore. It’s also the reason why affordable used midsize sedans from Kia, Hyundai, Chevrolet or Ford look more like luxury cars than economy vehicles. Here are four used economy rides that will make you rethink whether you really want to drop an extra $10,000 or more on a used luxury car like an Audi A4, Mercedes C-Class, Lincoln MKZ or BMW 3-series.
Based on the most popular Mojo Motors used car searches from October, if you’re looking to buy a used car to help you blend-in, go with a Toyota. If you want a used car that will make you stand out, buy a Smart ForTwo.

Keep in mind Mojo Motors only currently serves the New England market including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire so this data doesn’t speak for the other 46 states.

White was named the most popular car color in America beating out long-time favorite silver which has been the country’s most popular car color for the past ten years. It’s about time some fresh meat takes the crown from silver, but then again, the most exciting thing about white is when it makes an appearance on wheels. Refer to this Mustang Saleen and this Subaru WRX STi. White may be the most popular car color in America, but based on 117 responses from our Facebook fans, both red and black beat out America’s favorite by quite a majority. Even further down the list is silver, which was beaten out by the color blue in the fourth spot and green in the fifth-place spot.
