'Tammy' teaser: Melissa McCarthy is living in a gangsta's paradise

Posted on

If you’re a fan of Melissa McCarthy’s previous work — especially her blockbuster turn in The Heat last summer — it looks like Tammy was made for you. In addition to her starring role, McCarthy co-wrote the film with her husband, director Ben Falcone.

When Tammy (McCarthy) finds out her husband has been cheating on her, she embarks on a road trip with her hard-partying grandma (Susan Sarandon). But in the teaser trailer below, we see a solo Tammy gearing up for a fast-food robbery. She’s after bags of money and bags of pies while wearing a bag over her head and a bag over her “gun.” Check out the hilarious heist below:

Tammy is set to hit theaters on July 2.
