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.
Melissa McCarthy is probably the most in-form female comedienne working today, and with her latest R-rated comedy heading our way this July, no doubt she will continue that form. She had a very successful 2013 with Identity Thief and The Heat, both making well over $100M in the box office, with the latter surpassing the $150M mark. Tammy will be of the same ilk— it’ll make money and is released on a weekend that doesn’t have much in way of competition.
