The biggest releases in July, including Tammy and Transformers: Age of Extinction
What’s it about? Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is mad as hell, and she isn’t going to take it anymore. A woman with nothing left to lose hits the road with her rough old gran (Susan Sarandon), regaining her mojo via a string of obnoxious, star-studded incidents.
Why you should watch: Co-written by larger than life star Melissa and her husband, director Ben Falcone, Tammy is a pleasingly raucous, infectiously amusing road movie which somehow manages to be both predictable and surprising. McCarthy and Sarandon are great together and the supporting cast is out-of-this-world: Allison Janney (above), Dan Aykroyd, Kathy Bates, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette and many more besides.
