(Melissa McCarthy)

M-Net Movies Showcase DStv Channel 108 will screen the comedy Tammy on December 17 at 20h00

Directed by Ben Falcone in 2014, the cast is headed by Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates

McCarthy, who plays comedy and drama with the same aplomb, outshines Oscar winners Kathy Bates and Susan Sarandon in a side-splitting road movie that doesn’t mind veering off the neatly-paved tarmac onto the loose gravel, all for a laugh.

Tammy loses her job and her husband and decides to hit the road alone, resisting her grandma Pearl’s plea to be taken along. A wad of cash soon persuades her to change her mind, and the two set off on a madcap adventure during which Pearl finds love as well as a stint in jail! Rating16L
