A touch more comedy and not quite as strong a romance.
1 March 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I love the Tammy films, but one problem with them is continuity. In the first film, "Tammy and the Bachelor", it looks absolutely certain that she was about to marry her love (Leslie Nielsen). But in the second film he was gone and apparently lost interest in this delightful young woman. And, by the end of "Tammy Tell Me True", she was head over heels in love with a gorgeous and sweet professor (John Gavin)....and yet when "Tammy and the Doctor" begins he's gone! This is much more a problem for me than having Debbie Reynolds play Tammy in the first film and Sandra Dee in the next two.

This movie picks up after the second film. Tammy's good friend and companion, Annie (Beulah Bondi), is ill and needs to get surgery. However, she is awfully close to Tammy and Tammy wants to accompany her to the hospital. The hospital isn't about to let Tammy stay there and they come up with a compromise...to let her work at the hospital in order to be close to Annie.

So is it any good? Well, yes. But it isn't nearly as heart-warming and sweet as the previous two films. Much of it, in my opinion, is due to this film emphasizing comedy more than romance. Plus, I still kept worrying about her two previous boyfriends! Overall, a good film but not quite up to the very high standards set by the previous two movies.

By the way, Imdb mentions that this was Beulah Bondi's last film. This is not such as sad thing, as she lived another 17 years and made several notable television appearances during this period.
