The star of this new comedy movie Tammy is Melissa McCarthy, a stand-up comedian who you may know for the award winning tv series Mike & Molly which is just completing it’s forth season.

We found a couple of things linking her tv series and this new film; Warner Bros. and Kathy Bates! Kathy made an appearance in the tv show earlier this year.

Tammy – Official Information

[quote_box_center]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.
