Melissa McCarthy is living in a Gangsta's Paradise in the trailer for Tammy

Feb. 12, 2014by: Niki Stephens

As soon as I saw the teaser for TAMMY, I knew that somewhere out there in the movie blogsphere that someone would reference Shia LaBeouf. Youll understand why after you see it.

Here we see Melissa McCarthy as a bumbling, crazy person doing a pre-burger robbery ritual to Coolios infamous Gangstas Paradise. This is an interesting teaser since we are basically just getting a scene from the movie. Personally, I get plenty of laughs from McCarthys physical humor. So if you like McCarthy, and like the promise of Susan Sarandon playing her drunk grandma then this is for you.

Larry, shes telling me to take you out.

Synopsis:

After losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, a woman hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother.

TAMMY hits theaters on July 2, 2014.

WAS THAT A TRAILER OR A TEASER?

Im asking because it didn't really show what the movie is about. It showed the summed up version of one scene.

Melissa McCarthy is officially typecasted. I know comic actors usually have a schtick, but that doesnt mean they play the exact same character over and over. Not to mention that Melissa won an Emmy for "MIKE" & "MOLLY", so we know shes good at playing a different type of character.

The fact that she wrote the script with her husband Ben Falcone, and the fact that hes the

The fact that she wrote the script with her husband Ben Falcone, and the fact that hes the director, makes me think they wont be objective. Because love is related to idolization, he will probably think shes funny when shes not, and he wont ask for another take.

It;s getting old...

I really enjoy MM's movies, but after The Heat (her best ever) I am worried she is becoming over-saturated in the market. It is the same character, over and over. How many times can you watch the same person play the same character and get most of her laughs because she is fat?

looks good

fav part of the article:
"Personally, I get plenty of laughs from McCarthys physical humor." - or fat woman trying to be athletic equals laughs.

It would've been funnier as a red band where she says "shit" or "fuck" while trying to roll over the counter.

I wasn't a fan of Mcarthy and it was made worse by the tv show she has with the fat policeman. Just thought it was an attempt to get people to laugh at two fat people on screen. However I was made to watch Identity thief with my girlfriend at the time and although it wasn't a fantastic movie it did have an element of charm which was helped by Mcarthys performance so yeh I am all for giving this a go.

I think McCarthy is really funny

she is a talented comedian and actress. Now if she would only start playing characters that are white-trash. I can't stand her movies. She plays the same loud-obnoxious person every time. Even in "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat" where on paper her character is an awesome person, McCarthy (and the films' writers) still make it trashy. Call me a feminist but i think woman can still be funny without slumming it to gross-out and ignorant humor.

Agreed 100%...I think actresses can be funny without being Fat and Trashy; Just like I think they can be attractive or famous without being super skinny, like most Hollywood actresses....Great Comment.

Eh, I smirked, but it wasn't all that funny. Just the typical MCarthy bumbling around and acting obnoxious. She's funny, but this kind of slapstick humor just isn't really for her. She's better off in a supporting role like her part in Bridesmaids.

McCarthy's antics are probably becoming tiresome for those watching but I've missed all her films - which is probably why I found this quite entertaining.

That looks bad. McCarthy's schtick has long since gotten tired. She's no John Candy or even Chris Farley when it comes to fat funny people, that's for sure.

Although I am getting sick of Mcarthys schtick, the part where she points her finger as a gun was pretty funny

I find Melissa McCarthy hilarious so yeah I'll laugh my ass off most likely. It may be low brow humor, but damn it's funny.

I find her repulsive. But as you can see... I'm neutral on this for now.

This has to be one of the worst things I have ever seen. Seriously.

And McCarthy's schtick is getting old quick. It worked for Bridesmaids, but what has been the difference since then with any of her recent roles?

That was probably one of the least funniest trailers I've ever seen.
