Oscar® nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”) and Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon (“Dead Man Walking”) star in New Line Cinema’s comedy “Tammy,” marking Ben Falcone’s directorial debut. Tammy (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 (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 Pearl riding shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs.
The film also stars Allison Janney (“The Help”), playing Tammy’s world-weary mom, Deb; Gary Cole (TV’s “VEEP”) as ladies man Earl; and Mark Duplass (HBO’s “Togetherness”) as his son, Bobby; with Dan Aykroyd (“The Campaign”) as Tammy’s dad, Don; and Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates (“Misery,” “Midnight in Paris”) as Pearl’s fun-loving cousin Lenore. Rounding out the cast are Sandra Oh (TV’’s “Grey’s Anatomy”) as Lenore’s partner, Susanne; Oscar® nominee Toni Collette (“The Sixth Sense”) as Tammy’s neighbor, Missi; and Nat Faxon (“Bad Teacher”) as Tammy’s husband, Greg.
The screenplay is by Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produced the film with McCarthy. Rob Cowan, Falcone, Chris Henchy, Kevin Messick, Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener and Michael Disco served as executive producers. The behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Russ Alsobrook (“Paul Blart: Mall Cop”), production designer Jefferson Sage (“This is 40”), and Editor Mike Sale (“Bridesmaids”). The music is by Michael Andrews (“Bad Teacher”).
