Confession time: I am not a fan of Melissa McCarthy. Sure she has her moments, but for every Bridesmaids there’s an Identity Theft. Her schtick of just being loud and obnoxious doesn’t really do it for me. There are tons of people who do love her work though, and if you find yourself in this number, then this trailer for Tammy is sure to tickle your fancy.
It has McCarthy at her (funniest) McCarthiest, hooking up with a hard drinking, rabble rousing, flashing (?) Susan Sarandon, which is really what I’m here for.
Tammy (Melissa 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 shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
Tammy also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd and Kathy Bates, and will be released on July 2, 2014.
