Tammy Synopsis

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.

Casting an actor to play a character’s dad in a movie or television show can be tricky waters to navigate. On the one hand there’s the importance of matching certain genetic features, making sure that actor has some similar features and is age appropriate. Perhaps more important, however, is having a higher understanding of personality and making sure that there are some familiar patterns and mannerisms that can be matched and show link between parent and offspring.

Melissa McCarthy Takes An Awkward, Foul-Mouthed Field Trip For Tammy Trailer Melissa McCarthy Takes An Awkward, Foul-Mouthed Field Trip For Tammy Trailer
Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon end up in a car together, and they are heading to Niagara Falls, creating chaos along the way as they learn a bit more about each other… and a bit more about themselves. When you put it that way, it sounds a LOT like McCarthy’s own Identity Thief, replacing Sarandon with Jason Bateman as the comedian’s road-trip buddy.

While a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig could be out of the question for Melissa McCarthy, we will be seeing the Mike & Molly star back on the big screen eventually. In addition to being credited for a part in the upcoming Judd Apatow comedy This is 40, McCarthy also has Tammy in the works. The comedy, which McCarthy co-wrote and will executive-produce along with her husband/Bridesmaids-love interest Ben Falcone, now has a director.

The same goes for Taylor, who might be wise to play the waiting game before selecting his next project. Depending on whom you trust, Taylor’s The Help could be a major player in this year’s still-developing Oscar race. And a select few Oscar trackers are saying the film’s pull could drag Taylor into the Best Director race as a result. If that’s the case, he suddenly could have his pick of a series of prestige projects, so there’s no need to jump on a film just yet.

I actually really like the idea of breakout stars working together. They all have something to prove with their next efforts, so why not work together to produce the best work that they can? Taylor proved that he can handle strong lead female characters with The Help, so Tammy seems right up his alley.

Melissa McCarthy is on fire. Seriously, someone douse her in ranch dressing because the woman is hot right now. Still glowing from her breakout performance in Bridesmaids, an Emmy win, and more recently hosting the funniest episode of Saturday Night Live this season, it’s evident that McCarthy is having a good year. What’s on the horizon for her? Quite possibly a starring role in New Line’s Tammy.
