Kicking off the weekend a little early, Melissa McCarthy showed up at the premiere of her new movie “Tammy” in New York City (June 26).

Joined by her husband Ben Falcone and costar Susan Sarandon, the “Bridesmaids” actress looked to be having a blast as she hammed it up for the paparazzi outside the Landmark Sunshine Cinema.

Slated to hit theaters July 2nd, “Tammy” also stars Kathy Bates, Allison Janney, Dan Akroyd and Mark Duplass.

Per the synopsis, “Tammy, who was recently fired from a Toppy Jacks fast food restaurant, returns home only to find her husband enjoying a romantic meal with the neighbor. She quickly packs her necessities, and travels down three houses to her parent's home. Upon denied use of her mom's car to drive to Niagara Falls, she quickly resorts to an ‘ailing’ grandmother, who also lives in the home...Only instead of traveling alone, Grandma Pearl wants in on the road trip.”

“After realizing Grandma Pearl has the funds, they hit the road. Pearl soon proves to be quite the alcoholic despite her diabetes, and Tammy quickly turns into the ‘baby-sitter.’ From finding love in a bar to robbing a Toppy Jack's in order to bail Pearl out of jail, the quirky adventure will have you finding yourself riding along for the misadventures of Tammy.”
