Tammy

After teaming up with Sandra Bullock for the hit comedy The Heat, and being at odds with Jason Bateman in Identity Thief, this time Melissa McCarthy will be alongside Susan Sarandon in Tammy. The comedy follows McCarthy as the titular character, completely down on her luck with no money, no husband, and no car. She's ready to get the hell out of town, but in order to do that, she'll have to deal with her grandmother Pearl (Sarandon), who has a car and some extra cash. Yes, it's a road trip comedy, and we've got the first photo of this disastrous duo, and they seem to behaving some police trouble at a liquor store.

Here's the first photo from Ben Falcone's Tammy from USA Today:

Tammy is directed by Ben Falcone, who also co-wrote the script with wife Melissa McCarthy, playing the title character. Tammy has totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her job at a greasy burger joint, and finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It's time to take her boom box and book it. But since she's broke without a car, her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option—with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd and Kathy Bates also star in the film Warner Bros. is releasing July 2nd.

    Is it just me or does Melissa McCarthy only have one look: sarcastically annoyed. How did she ever get an acting career?

      Overweight, marginally funny, and she knows it!

    There are two women who will forever be stuck playing in dumb comedies. This woman and Cameron Diaz. Both are incapable of doing anything else at this point.
