Trivia

Shirley MacLaine was originally cast in the grandmother role, however scheduling conflicts with the fourth season of Downton Abbey (2010) required her to be replaced with Susan Sarandon. Before Sarandon was ultimately cast, Debbie Reynolds, who famously starred in Tammy and the Bachelor (1957), in the role of Tammy, was also considered. Reynolds' rendition of the title song, "Tammy," spent 23 weeks on the Billboard Top 40 chart, beginning July 27, 1957, including five weeks at number-one, and was nominated for a Best Song Academy Award for 1957.

Tammy: A Review
4 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie feeling like it might be underwhelming. I'd heard bad things. A boss of mine tried to steer me away from this movie, but I figured I'd see it anyway. I've gone to McCarthy's movies for a while now, and some of them are relatively amusing on some spectrum. (For example, I thought "Identity Thief" was OK, but "The Heat" just felt like overdone crude trash.) Well, this was a pretty unfunny affair. It was almost kind of depressing. "Take a character that's in a whole lot of crummy situations, and send her off on a road trip with an alcoholic. Should be funny right?" No. It's not. It's uneven, too. It tries to make you care about the characters when they get sad for a moment, but that doesn't work. I don't think I truly laughed once watching this. It was a shame to see Susan Sarandon, Dan Aykroyd, Sandra Oh, Toni Collete and Kathy Bates in this drivel.

The Good: Good actors, despite a bad script.

The Bad: Script is terrible and unfunny. Brings back memories of stuff like "The Hangover III". Just depressing from beginning to the end.

2/10
