Even though Tammy and her grandmother are supposed to be in Kentucky for the bar scene, the banjoist's playing style is derived from North Carolina where the scene is actually filmed. See more »
When Pearl and Tammy are arrested the judge sets her bond at $3000, and the police officer tells Tammy that she must come up with that amount to get Pearl out. In reality most bondsmen will bond you out for 10-15% of your bond, making it roughly $300-450 to get Pearl out. See more »
Once I got fingered by Boz Scaggs.
No, it's okay. It turns out it wasn't Boz Scaggs.

There is a blooper from the scene when Tammy gets fired a minute into the credits. See more »
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.
