Movies : The New Yorker

(7/7 & 14/14) (In limited release.) Tammy Its daring of Melissa McCarthywho produced the film and co-wrote the script with her husband, Ben Falcone (who directed)to cast herself as an aggressive, uneducated, irresponsible, and vain young woman who causes trouble wherever she goes and gets into trouble that she cant get out of. The movie is a showcase for her talent, and, although its a comedy, it suggests an incisive vision that, unfortunately, is never fully realized. Tammy, a fast-food employee in a small town in Illinois, loses her job and her husband on the same day. Desperate and penniless, she goes on a road trip with her grandmother, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), a former adventurer now constrained by infirmity. Their destination is Niagara Falls, but they go the long way, which involves near-catastrophic crashes, lots of alcohol, some violent crime, and some jail time. The harrowing story of downward-spiralling expectations, a rapid fall from a tenuous toehold on middle-class security, is the movies grand inspiration. Though flamboyant, McCarthy ultimately hedges her performance.

No one can take away the resistance’s arms,” Mashaal said. He also dismissed Israel’s assertion that it tries to avoid civilian casualties but Hamas puts them in danger by hiding weapons and fighters in civilian areas. “The truth is that (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu could not reach the militants, so killed the civilians,” Maashal said. U.S. officials have downplayed expectations for an immediate, lasting truce between Israel and Hamas. But Kerry said limited progress has been made.
