First Look: Melissa McCarthy as Tammy (trailer)
Need a laugh? I did. And the folks at Warner Brothers were kind enough to hook me up as they released the trailer for the sure-to-be-summer-blockbuster from red-hot funny lady Melissa McCarthy. The movie, Tammy, was written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone. He directs. Smart couple. Keep the money in the family.
Susan Sarandon co-stars. As does Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd and Kathy Bates. I could give you plot details, but you already know what’s important. Melissa McCarthy is set loose and laughs will ensue. That’s enough to get my butt in a seat on July 2, when it is released. Is McCarthy the new Will Smith? Maybe she’ll own 4th of July weekend for the next few years.
Oh, and you know Coolio is dusting off his dancing shoes. He’s going out tonight.
