Bringing It Home Tammy
20 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've read the hate views on here and all I can say is I am glad I don't watch movies through these people's eyes. Every movie has some continuity issues and that is now a normal part of keeping up with some many tasks needed to bring entertainment to the screen. Tammy is no exception. What I like most about this movie is that Tammy is the hard working girl next door. If you don't believe me, go next door and you will see. For some people, a string of misfortune is not a cause to quit but a reason for a road trip.

I personally believe this was not a comedy but a drama with people having fun and being funny. We all know that person in out life who makes us laugh most of the time without meaning to and for that Melissa was really great. "Identify Theft" which was my first view of her work and I liked it very much.

When I go to the movie I go with the intent and mindset to be entertained. I don't go as a critic I go as a fan and a willing participant to allow a few artist to live out characters situations just for my viewing pleasure. To go as a critic means to allow myself to miss the artistry and the opportunity to divest from my own reality and problems just so I can find reason to not like a talent. Bad artist speak for themselves without the critic's eye. Good artists are sincere at working to be great artist such as Melissa and I don't blame them for that. Even Denzel has done a few "less entertaining films as well as any other artist who make more than 50 Mill a picture.

Melissa, you did a great job with Tammy and I look forward to you next work.
