Critic Reviews for Tammy's Always Dying

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (8)

  • The film has more success in smaller beats, when it's not hamstrung by over-the-top performances or obvious drama.

  • "Tammy's Always Dying" is a richly observed comedy-drama. Johnson's direction is intelligent and restrained. She trusts her actors, letting us see moments develop among them.

  • Huffman doesn't seem fully invested here - a slur and a tilt seem to be the totality of her acting choices, resulting in a caricature most followers of Canadian indie cinema have seen before.

    April 30, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Competently crafted, "Tammy" is too glib to be poignant and too defeatist to be amusing.

  • The main reason the film is worth a watch is the strong performances of its two leads.

  • ...a punchy, gritty experience that will poke and grab at your emotions in surprising and meaningful ways.
