Chalk it up to another hit for Melissa McCarthy. The hit machine (she should get that trademarked or something, God knows she deserves it after “The Heat,” “Identity Thief,” and her own TV show) is playing another loveable loser in director Ben Falcone’s “Tammy.” She plays, of course, the titular Tammy, who in this first teaser trailer for the movie, sticks up a burger joint. Hilarity, as they say, ensue.
Seriously, go ahead and mark this one as a hit, because it’s a hit, folks. It’s a no-brainer. And it looks pretty funny, too, which never hurts, I guess.
Tammy (McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Sarandon), is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
Starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd, and Kathy Bates.
Tammy takes on the law this July 2nd.
