I have seen all 3 Tammys & without a doubt Debbie is the BEST. She is corny without being too corny. While the others have the hick part down, sometimes they do get just a bit too 'hicky'. But Debbie! Just the right amount of sincere innocence. There are phrases, or lines that are used in this Tammy that appear in the other Tammy adventures. But o my what can I say? Debbie Reynolds is just too good in this role! I adore Sandra Dee, but she is Gidget to me (except for sally field in the TV series), & Debbie will always be Tammy. If you haven't seen this, get your girlfriends, & daughters together & watch a movie that is good, wholesome & even has a great ending. It isn't tear-jerker, but it does have some tender moments, and some that will make you laugh. Wait till you Leslie Nielson! I watch this over & over as do any movie with Debbie Reynolds.
