Movie Info

For Tammy (Melissa McCarthy), a burger-joint waitress, a bad day keeps getting worse. She wrecks her car, loses her job and finds her husband in a compromising position with their neighbor. It's time for Tammy to hit the road, but without money or transportation, her options are limited. Her only choice is a road trip with her grandmother, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), who has a car, cash and an itch to see Niagara Falls. It's not the escape Tammy had in mind, but it may be what she needs.

    Very poor effort for a comedy from Melissa McCarthy I don't think I laughed once, Every joke fell flat, I did enjoy the story as it turned out to be quite heartwarming but not enough to make this a good movie I'm afraid.

    Don't get the hate on this one. Yes, it's stupid, but it's meant to be. Dumb comedy similar in tone to Stepbrothers. I laughed quite a few times, though it's not consistently funny and it does have its faults. Overall message is nice.

    Melissa McCarthy delivers her usual style of comedy in her newest film Tammy. After losing her job and discovering that her husband's been having an affair, Tammy leaves home and takes off on a road trip. While McCarthy is able to deliver some laughs, by-and-large her routine is rather worn-out; as she's playing the same old character that she always does. And, the plot is pretty pointless, with little being accomplished. Unfortunate, Tammy doesn't really know what it wants to do and ends up meandering aimlessly.

    Yeah it's predictable, but I'd argue that the film is much better than the strangely hostile negative reviews, which probably wouldn't have been so bad if the movie had all male characters. It's a great role for McCarthy . . . crass yet enduring.
