Niagara Falls Shines as Film Location for Road Comedy "Tammy"

After making the mega-successful summer blockbuster hit The Heat, Melissa McCarthy (the beloved Sookie St. James from Gilmore Girls and the hilarious Megan from Bridesmaids) came to Niagara Falls last month to film her next movie, a road comedy called Tammy.

With the august Niagara Falls gracing the background, Ms. McCarthy, Sandra Oh, and Academy Award winners Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates, filmed a scene from the observation deck at Niagara Falls State Park. Neither Ms. McCarthy nor Ms. Sarandon had seen the Falls before. Filming the movie there was a special treat for both.

Written by Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, and directed by Mr. Falcone, Tammy is a comedy about a woman going on a road trip with her grandmother after losing her job and finding out that her husband has been unfaithful. Dan Ackroyd is also part of the talented cast.
