I do blame you. I blame you for shoving me out of a hotel room last night and letting me sleep outside like a dog. I blame you 'cause you're already on your second bloody Mary. It's not even 10:00 A.M.
This is vegetables.
I blame you for packing up your shit and making me come home from school when I was ten years old and finding an empty fucking room. That's what I blame you for. You know how shitty that was for a little kid? You left me all alone.
Well, you weren't ...

I can usually find some redeeming qualities in most if not all movies... not so here. Tammy is simply not funny.
The movie is poorly written, poorly acted and cannot be saved even with the brilliant Kathy Bates and a bit-part by Dan Akroyd. Foul language exists to try to boost scenes that are stone dead unfunny and it goes over like a lead balloon. I was tempted to ask for a refund.
Don't even waste your time watching it when it comes out on Netflix, you'll be spared the bore-fest.
The IMDb has a 10-line requirement for leaving reviews but to be frank, it hard to write 10- lines about a movie that is simply not entertaining. I suspect that even hard core McCarthy fans will have a hard time trying to swallow this one.
