Watch: Melissa McCarthy is a Poor Burglar in the First 'Tammy' Teaser

Though the summer comedy Tammy is a road trip comedy, the first teaser for the film starring Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon doesn't feature of that jazz. Instead, this teaser trailer uses Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" to contrast the sheer sloppiness and goofiness of McCarthy dressed like a hobo and trying to rob a fast food stop with a paper bag on her head and a "concealed weapon." It's a pretty funny teaser, but it doesn't really gives us much of a vibe of what to expect from the film. In fact, it's nothing we haven't seen McCarthy do before by playing a rough-around-the-edges woman of sorts. Watch the trailer!

Here's the teaser trailer for Ben Falcone's Tammy originally from Apple:

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.

    Yeah... NO.

    Melissa McCarthy is actually a pretty good actress. I don't know why, given the opportunity to write something for herself, this is what she would do.
  • ThunderMath
    With the bag on her head she reminds of the Zodiac Killer.
  • Chuckee Knowlton
    SOMEDAY people are going to realize that this woman can only do one thing. The fact that she co-wrote it should be proof enough. This woman's day has expired.

    From this trailer, NO ONE is going to know what this movie is about.
