Tammy is a comedy starring Melissa McCarthy as the titular character, a woman who has recently seemed to lose everything of significance in her life, even though that was very little to begin with. She has learned that her husband has been cheating on her, and she has been fired from her job at a fast food restaurant. Following these losses, she visits her parents who live just three doors down in an attempt to figure out what is next in her life. As she decides to make a trip to Niagra Falls, her parents refuse to help her, but her grandmother Pearl, played by Susan Sarandon, quickly comes to her aid and travels with her. Pearl is a rough talking, sickly, often drunk woman who lives with Tammy's parents and whose life and attitude vary greatly from that of Tammy. This character dichotomy is the basis of the laughs present throughout the film. The unlikely pair proceeds in many comic misadventures that are sometimes based on Tammy's desperation in life and sometimes based on Pearl's desire to live a wild life even in the worst of health with diabetes. Tammy also stars Kathy Bates and Mark Duplass.
