    Review: 'Tammy' Starring Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon And Mark Duplass

    The marketing campaign for "Tammy," the new Melissa McCarthy comedy, has always been somewhat baffling. Instead of a straight-up teaser, Warner Bros chose to release a snippet of a single scene, where McCarthy's titular character was robbing a greasy fast food restaurant.

    Lynn Shelton's Family Close-Up, 'Touchy Feely'

    As we know from moisturizer commercials -- and are reminded by an unlikely source, Lynn Shelton's Touchy Feely -- extreme close-ups of skin are not pretty, full of cracks and lines and bumps. We see these shots because Rosemarie De Witt plays Abby, a massage therapist whose emotional life is qu...
