The Choir Trailer


Stet is just 11-years-old and struggling to come to terms with his mother's death. He frequently lashes out and has little discipline, but the one thing he does have a lot of is talent. An impressive singer, he is thrust into the National Boychoir Academy who accept him only on the basis that he can sing and that his father pays them well. However, he struggles to fit in with the other children, especially when it emerges that he is unable to read music. He causes fights and is frequently picked on, the school are beginning to see him as a liability, but there's an important concert coming up and Stet could prove to be their new secret weapon; all he needs is a little help. Choir master Carvelle takes him under his wing with a hard line, determined to show Stet just how great he can be.

The show begins each season with an entirely new setting and premise and the series regulars play different roles each time. The previous season centered around a school for young witches, with traditions stretching back to the Salem witch trials and explored themes like feminism, racism and the civil rights movement. Season 5 will feature a carnival theme and be set in the 1950s.

Tammy Review


Grim

Melissa McCarthy is clearly in a rut: the title character in this film isn't very far removed from her previous roles in The Heat and Identity Thief. Yes, Tammy is another chubby slob who is on the road to some sort of epiphany, and along the way she realises that simply running a comb through her ratty hair might make her look more human. At least the film has a seriously strong supporting cast who almost make it worth a look.

Tammy (McCarthy) is sacked from her job at a fast-food outlet on the same day she discovers that her husband (Faxon) is having a fling with a neighbour (Tony Collette). In a childish rage, she runs home to her parents (Allison Janney and Dan Aykroyd) and then decides to keep running, taking her grandmother Pearl (Sarandon) along for the ride. Pearl has a dream to see Niagara Falls before she dies, but she's just about as immature as Tammy is, so they immediately start getting into trouble. Their antics include a series of incidents involving a jet-ski, flirting and more with a father and son (Gary Cole and Mark Duplass), robbing a burger joint and attending a raucous 4th of July party at the home of Pearl's wealthy cousin (Kathy Bates).

Tammy is even less worldly wise than McCarthy's previous variations on the character: she has never even attempted to grow up, so reacts to everything like a toddler. Aside from not being remotely funny, this is deeply annoying from the start. And even the characters around her don't laugh - they roll their eyes in exasperation. Then after establishing her as a relentless loser who brings misfortune on herself, the script (written by McCarthy and her real-life husband Ben Falcone, who also directs and appears as Tammy's boss) contrives to make Tammy sympathetic by portraying her as some sort of a victim. Meanwhile, she of course slowly begins to look less cartoonish simply because she changes her shirt and takes a shower along the way.

Tammy - Trailer And Clips


When Tammy is late for work following an unlikely road accident, she is fired from her job at Toppy Jacks fast food restaurant. And that's just the icing on the cake when she gets home to find that her husband has been sleeping with their neighbour. With nowhere to stay, she decides to take a road trip to Niagara Falls, but first she needs to borrow the car from her mother. When she refuses, the only person left to turn to is her alcoholic and diabetic grandmother Pearl who, unfortunately for Tammy, also happens to have an adventurous streak and wants to come along for the ride. The journey is, predictably, full of serious hitches. Not only does Pearl get arrested, but Tammy gets into some serious trouble with the police after she attempts an 'armed' robbery on a nearby Toppy Jacks, crashes a speedboat on the side of a lake and nearly runs some sightseers over in a nature park. It's no smooth ride, but it could be the perfect bonding experience.

'Tammy' is a hilarious new comedy serving as main star Melissa McCarthy's ('The Heat', 'Bridesmaids') first venture into film writing. It co-stars and has been co-written and directed by her husband Ben Falcone in his directorial debut and it is scheduled for UK release on July 4th 2014.

Melissa McCarthy Shines In First Indie Project, "Tammy"


Melissa McCarthy Kathy Bates Allison Janney Susan Sarandon

Melissa McCarthy’s star has risen rather rapidly over 2013 and 2014, with the world finally catching on to the comedienne’s brilliance. Now, despite a whole load of stupid that she has to deal with on the regular – a quick look at the message boards on her IMDB page proves it’s quite a lot – McCarthy now has both the time and the influence to work on her own pet projects.

Enter Tammy, McCarthy’s new movie, opening July 2. She stars in the road-trip comedy, which she also co-wrote with her husband Ben Falcone. This is Falcone’s directorial debut, but despite its indie vibe, the movie is getting a pretty good rap from critics.
