Don't understand the negative reviews (by moviegirl86)
After hearing and reading so many negative reviews, I didn't expect much. But I highly enjoyed myself. I cracked up laughing many times and so did the others in the theater. I went to an early morning movie expecting to see few people because of the time and the bad reviews. The theater was packed! After the move was over people were quoting it and laughing. This is a funny road trip movie. Tammy as had a very bad day: hit a deer and damaged her car, got fired, and walks in on her husband cheating on her. So she decides to take off. Her grandmother invites herself to go along. Tammy's <more>
ignorance of some things and her grandmothers drinking problem, make for lots of laughs. I say people give this movie a break, this was not going for an Oscar. It was made to be a laid back, funny summer movie. Go in to this not expecting award winning material and you will enjoy it.
Tammy is a decent little black comedy. (by Merang0)
TAMMY is a decent little movie and is NOT anything like BRIDESMAIDS! Critics are panning the film, because the critics want that absurdity and comedy of Hangover & Bridesmaids. This film was written by Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, and directed by Ben Falcone. It's a simple little black comedy with some really good actors! There are some extremely funny moments, but most importantly there is a story to follow that pretty much keeps on track. It's like Thelma & Louise, but it's later when Louise is now an elderly alcoholic living with her daughter, and she <more>
decides to hit the road again with her grand daughter - played by McCarthy. What's different about Tammy is how alcohol can really effect a family. So I applaud McCarthy and Falcone for a wonderful first endeavor, and I encourage any Mellissa McCarthy fan to see it. You won't be disappointed if you understand that its NOT BRIDESMAIDS!
This Movie Is Very Good- Avoid the Haters and Jealous Peoples' Opinions (by pamelawells)
Both this and the Edge of Tomorrow are very good movies.Very Entertaining. Give it a chance. It is very funny.The performances are excellent. It has a great cast.The movie is never boring.An actual movie you can sit thru twice.If you read some of the negative reviews they don't even make sense. Why so much hate over a movie- ask yourself that? I've never seen Melissa do a horrible movie.I've seen and rented a thousand movies and this is one of the best.Most movies today you can't even sit thru.So give it a chance.
Loved it (by kari-524-934653)
I really enjoyed this movie. I admit I wasn't constantly laughing at her jokes, like I have in the past, but I was still entertained and pulled into the story every step of the way. It's a story about discovery and growth, like any good road trip story. The bonus is that McCarthy and Sarandon were not scared to play the best and worst of their characters, and they do it well and with abandoned enthusiasm.McCarthy has always been able to make me laugh, but in this movie I actually cried as much as I laughed. For instance, there is a scene where she cries over a loss, and she is <more>
full-out crying - just like I would be in that scenario - and it hit that emotional button in me.I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews of this movie. It's like people had too high of expectations or, as I have seen with some reviewers, they just do not like McCarthy and would have hated the movie no matter what she did.The movie was made to be a classic road trip movie with adventures, mishaps, and growth. It delivers on that promise and uses a great cast to do it.
One of the most hilarious female comedic actresses of our time (by doofuspoofus)
Melissa McCarthy has established herself as one of the most hilarious female comedic actresses of our time. Much like Chris Farley films her weight simply adds to her humor. The story sets up nicely as she heads to work only to hit a deer with her car making her late. Her unrelenting slightly racist boss fires her on the spot and to make matters worse she gets home and finds her husband with another woman.After stopping at her mother's house ready to leave town needing to borrow her grandmother's car, her grandmother hilariously played by Susan Sarandon offers her money in exchange <more>
for a ride. The two set off on a road trip that becomes the adventure of both their lives. Even though Melissa has "type cast" herself what comedic actor hasn't. It was also good to see Susan on the road again although this time around she didn't drive into the grand canyon. Sarandon's performance as the alcoholic grandmother played well off Melissa's quirky Tammy character and the two are just as good a female comedic duo as Sandra Bullock and McCarthy in The Heat. Which brings me to say this is definitely a film for Melissa McCarthy fans which I certainly am and I cannot wait for her next comedy because I will be there to see it.
I'm not sure why people are putting this movie down. My family came away happy, my son is still mentioning how funny it was.I wont go into detail like most, all I will say is that the whole theater was laughing hard and loud throughout most of the movie, which is what most people want when they go see a comedy, to laugh NOT think.For those that already know Melissa McCarthy, you know what to expect and you will not be disappointed. Add Susan and Kathy and I don't see how you can go wrong. I really think people are putting too many expectations on this.If you don't know Melissa <more>
McCarthy then you must live under a rock lol. But still it is funny so just enjoy it like my whole family did!
Demolition Tammy & boozy old granny ..... (by cekadah)
.... take a road trip and get a lesson in love & hate!This flick isn't as bad as so many reviews are claiming!! It's another in a long list of 'life lessons learned while on the road movies' with plenty of not guffaw moments but plenty of light hearted laffs and chuckles.Melissa McCarthy knows she has created this bloated sassy bitch with a kind and well meaning heart character, and she is taking it to the box office to cash in because plenty of people think she's funny. In 'Tammy' she has plenty of Hollywood names around her .. Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates <more>
being most prominent and doing their role well.As a simple comedy it works fine. I don't think for one moment there is some meaningful message so many viewer seems to be seeking. It's just Tammy & granny hitting the road because they are tired of their daily routine and seek something different .... in Niagara Falls ... and they find their goal. And tear-up plenty of stuff on the way!It's a good movie!
The pros: Good story line, great acting, good kicks, well sequenced music. I can't see too many ways the movie could have been better.. Elements were synchronized well.it just had the right balance, it's not too fast or too slow.. but some movies are good slow and steady..There is no way this movie should go fora rating below 6.. This is what happens when you have a voting system where any tasteless bill can poop around his opinion. One of the few movies that doesn't impose itself on you.. give it a chance and enjoy..
Very funny movie. (by bettymano)
Lots of laughs. The characters are all funny. Story line is involved without being complicated. Only personal objection is the amount of swearing, but unfortunately that seems to be the norm. BEST SCENE: Great words of advice in the scene with Lenore Kathy Bates and Tammy Melissa in the dock. I will add this to my DVD collection when it is released. It's a 'keeper'. It's nice to see a 'they lived happily ever after' movie. The scenes between Tammy and Bobby Mark Duplass are touching. While there are scenes/references to sex, they were without great <more>
detail/visuals. The theater audience was a mixed age group and I heard several compliments when leaving after the movie.
