It drags and it befuddles, but like most McCarthy properties, Tammy sings when she's onscreen. Worth the bumps.

'Tammy' is a disappointment, because it asks an energetic, unpredictable performer to play it so calculatingly, frustratingly safe.

Ultimately, the entire film plays like a 100-minute deleted scene - shaggy, formless, and voraciously inconsequential.

A good film is hiding beneath the surface of the adequate one onscreen and it's a shame when the talent involved deserved better.

As crude as you'd expect, and not as funny as you'd hope

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

With its kitschy bald eagle sculpture, its lesbian-hosted Fourth of July party and its mid-robbery salute of a war veteran ('We appreciate your service'), the latest McCarthy road trip is a celebration of American opportunity but also a muddled misfire.

The character's jagged edges convey only McCarthy's star-vehicle opportunism.

[Star] McCarthy has so much more talent than what this unwatchable nonsense displays.

Perpetually feels a few good jokes away from being really funny.

When Melissa McCarthy tries cracking wise in front of the camera in what are obviously attempts at improvisation, man, those moments feel like they go on forever. And there's way too many of them. She strives for punchlines that never eventuate.

After Identity Thief (co-starring Jason Bateman) and The Heat (Sandra Bullock), Tammy marks the third film in a row to have McCarthy annoy, mistreat and then belatedly make amends with a mismatched sidekick.

The filmmakers never quite find the balance between real-life experience and freewheeling nonsense that drives the best comic road movies.

The film is a mild imitation of a traditional slapstick comedy, and there's nothing here but a few laughs and an unsatisfying ending.

[Something] in Tammy you wouldn't expect to see in a mainstream comedy [is] the romantic pairing of McCarthy with indie heartthrob Mark Duplass, reversing the formula of the male slob who gets the conventionally beautiful girl.

A disaster as a comedy from the first frame to the last, the film is also smotheringly cloying, heaping more unearned sentimentality, false pathos and super-saccherinated schmaltz onto its "odd couple" than any adult should ever have to endure.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Contender for worst film of the year, Tammy is painful. If you are looking for a good laugh, a well-written script, engaging characters, quirky relationships, a story with heart and having a whale of a time, this Melissa McCarthy comedy is not it
Christopher Lawrence

Too often, at least during its first half, Tammy feels like a case of been there, done something similar but not quite as over-the-top as that.

Co-written by star McCarthy with her director (and real life husband) Falcone, "Tammy" is a dramadey that actually works best during its most serious moments.

"Tammy" is a movie that is painful, pathetic, and more willing to engage in a joke about getting fingered by Boz Scaggs than anything even remotely introspective.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
August 6, 2014
Falls into that narrow crevice between cringe comedy and working-class drama. Then, deep underground, long out of the range of humour, it flails where no one can hear it, drawing scenes out into shapeless, squalid things.
