unrealistic
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being from the south, I'm insulted by the portrayal of Tammy's speech. No one--I repeat--no one from the south has, does, or ever will speak that way. I've known some very backwoods people in my time, and even they did not speak in the way that the Tammy character does in this movie. It makes no sense and is very unrealistic. It's too bad that the writers didn't spend a single day in Mississippi to see how people from that state actually talk. While the plot is just as implausible as well, there are some slightly refreshing and entertaining aspects to this movie. It cannot, however, come even close to being compared to the original--Tammy and the Bachelor, a much classier movie.
