Every so often our fates are crossed with free movie tickets. Even more rare they’re tickets for a screening of a movie. I absolutely love when this happens. It’s only happened to me three times but man I love it! Something about seeing a movie before 95% of the population does is thrilling. On July 1st we received tickets to the screening of Tammy.
Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She’s totaled her car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, find her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house.
It’s time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she’s broke and without wheels. The worse new is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option – with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with Pearl riding shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs.

To be honest I had no idea about this movie, we’d not seen trailers or even heard of it until we had the free passes. We laughed pretty hard during a few parts. Overall I remember saying “Those are NOT Susan Sarandon’s cankles. No. WAY.” and we walked away feeling a little…sad.
