Audience Reviews for Tammy Tell Me True

Mile high corn with Gavin giving his usual block of wood performance, watching him trying to laugh is painful. Sandra is appealing even if she lays it on a little thick. A supporting cast of old pros however help enormously.

Every movie in this line is cute. Sandra Dee was a good depictor of cute and romance during her time.

The Tammy movies kept using the same tricks over and over again, and...they kept working. Over and over again. I blame Sandra Dee.
