Tammy, in the end, feels like a pulled punch. McCarthy promises a haymaker she never quite delivers.

McCarthy is aggressive and foul-mouthed while Sarandon is sensible and laid-back. And they’re clearly destined for trouble, which leads to...

When you’re balancing ridiculous slapstick right out of a live-action cartoon with well-written, well-acted scenes that feel completely of...

Basically a drama-in-disguise. Unfortunately, it’s a formulaic and extremely uneven one, albeit with a number of sympathetic performances.

The fact that it stars the extremely funny Melissa McCarthy is both its saving grace and incredibly frustrating.

Where 1991's "Thelma & Louise" was funny and action-filled, Tammy's story is thin, cringe-inducing and, worst of all for a comedy, not...

Tammy was a total bust

By mississipwoman
This is the first time I've actually taken time to write a review. Tammy was by far the worst movie I've seen this year. I was extremely disappointed. It was so bad, several people got up and left...

I love Melissa McCarthy and think she is funny. However, I can't stand the GD or excessive cursing. This movie started off cute/funny then it became too predictable. Our guest also I noticed quite...

Tammy

By zmhs84
This is why I've stopped watching hollyweird made movies. Subpar acting. Lame lines. Loose morals. Not even funny. The only normal person (Tammy's mother) was portrayed seemingly as 'abnormal' amongst...

Tammy

Sad Effort
