Melissa McCarthy's film career has blown up since Bridesmaids, and now it seems like she stars in one comedy after another. The next film she is doing is a fun-looking dark comedy called Tammy. It's a passion project that she co-wrote the film with her husband, Ben Falcone, who is also the director. If you're a fan of McCarthy's comedy style, then this seems like a movie that you'll really enjoy. Here's the synopsis:
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 (Susan 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 shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
The movie also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd, and Kathy Bates. It will open in theaters on July 2nd. Thanks to ABC’s Good Morning America for the trailer.
