Watched on AMC classics for the first time 2 weeks ago., 23 June 1999
Author: anonymous

I thought the movie was great considering that I had no interest in watching it in the first place. I had seen it in the video store and didn't want to rent it. Not my style of movie (I like action or adventure), but I liked Tammy enough to want to rent it if it's not on AMC again. Both my wife and I saw it together and we loved it.
