Warner Bros. has released a TV spot for Melissa McCarthy's fun looking new comedy, Tammy. This is a passion project for McCarthy who co-wrote the script with her husband, Ben Falcone. Falcone also directed the movie. McCarthy is absolutely hilarious to watch on the big screen. She is really great at physical comedy. This looks like it could be a solid film and I hope it does well for her. 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.
