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.

After losing her job, husband and car in one day, Tammy Banks (Melissa McCarthy) wants out of her small town existence. With no money or transportation, her only way out is with her hard-partying grandmother, Pearl (Susan Sarandon). Their misadventures and brushes with the law lead them on a funny and heartfelt road trip to remember.

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.”)
