Demolition Tammy & boozy old granny .....
9 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

.... take a road trip and get a lesson in love & hate!

This flick isn't as bad as so many reviews are claiming!! It's another in a long list of 'life lessons learned while on the road movies' with plenty of (not guffaw moments) but plenty of light hearted laffs and chuckles.

Melissa McCarthy knows she has created this bloated sassy bitch with a kind and well meaning heart character, and she is taking it to the box office to cash in because plenty of people think she's funny. In 'Tammy' she has plenty of Hollywood names around her .. Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates being most prominent and doing their role well.

As a simple comedy it works fine. I don't think for one moment there is some meaningful message so many viewer seems to be seeking. It's just Tammy & granny hitting the road because they are tired of their daily routine and seek something different .... in Niagara Falls ... and they find their goal. And tear-up plenty of stuff on the way!

It's a good movie!
