No belly laughs but a few chuckles
8 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

8 July 2014 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - Tammy. OK so this is a road trip movie, starring Susan Sarandon, but Thelma and Louise it is not! This is the story of Tammy, fired from her dead end job, totals her car on the way home then finds her husband entertaining a woman when she gets there, she realises that life pretty much sucks. Wanting to borrow her Grandma's car to leave town she is horrified when she realises that Grandmas wants to come too, and she wants to drive to Niagara Falls. Melissa McCarthy stars as Tammy and she is very annoying, way too brash to be endearing and she does not shut up but despite that she grows on you. Susan Sarandon is excellent as the alcoholic Grandma and there is an appearance from Gary Cole (remember him from The Midnight Caller - a lot older but still quite good looking with his salt and pepper hair and beard). This film keeps you interested as Tammy and her Grandma lurch from one incident to the next and they both learn things about themselves and each other along the way. Point to note, one of the producers was Will Ferrell. No belly laughs but several chuckles.
