Storyline

When Pete's plane crashes in the swamp, he's rescued by young Tammy, an unsophisticated backwoods girl who lives with her lay-preacher-cum-moonshiner grandfather. When Pete's well, he goes back home to his fiancée. But then Grampa gets sent to jail and he sends Tammy to stay with Pete. At Pete's house, Tammy's home cooking, enthusiasm and quaint sunshiny personality bring about changes in Pete's family and in Pete himself. Written by Kathy Li

Wow
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love all Tammy's movies. Someday I would like to own them. I think I am the youngest to ever love these movies at my age. My best one is Tammy and the Doctor. I would like to know if any one no where to buy her movies. Sandra Lee is a good Tammy but I think Debbie was just suite able for the role of Tammy. I am only 22 and I love old fashion movies.You might think I am a little weird but I love all old movies. My dad brought me up on these kinda of movies. I was wondering why all old movies had hardly any bad language in them like the movies know days have a ton of bad language in them you can't find one that doesn't. They are all great movies so you all should watch them over and over.
