Melissa McCarthy Robs a Burger Joint in ‘Tammy’ Trailer

Variety's Women's Impact List

New Line has released the first trailer for the Melissa McCarthy road-trip comedy “Tammy,” highlighting an incompetent robbery at a burger joint.

Rather than use the conventional ski mask, McCarthy wears a paper bag over her head to commit the crime.

“Tammy,” which also stars Allison Janney, Susan Sarandon and Mark Duplass, began shooting last spring with McCarthy starring with spouse Ben Falcone. McCarthy and Falcone are also producing along with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay through their Gary Sanchez banmer.

“Tammy” follows a women who, after losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother (played by Sarandon). McCarthy and Falcone co-wrote the script and Falcone directed.

The film opens July 2.

    Count me in! The indefatigable Ms. McCarthy was brilliant in THE HEAT – surely the best physical comedienne to come along in years. Much respect and affection from this movie-goer. Hope TAMMY’s a blast.
