Hilarious and sweet
10 August 2000 | by ivan-22See all my reviews

Not as beautiful as "Tammy Tell Me True", but even funnier.

Tammy is an implausibly innocent country bumpkin who clashes with the modern world. She has derogatory things to say about Shakespeare, Mozart, Psychology, Colleges, modern art, sleeping pills, freeways, conformism, phoniness.

Tammy: "You mean you been livin' with yourself all your life without ever knowing what you are???"

Sandra Dee is brilliant in her role - and it is truly hers.

Much of the movie's delight is in Tammy's ungrammatical speech. She says glorious things like "Be you gonna or be ya ain't" (Will you or won't you?). She asks a man "Bein't ya the dumb waiter?" and he sternly replies: "No, I be the chief of staff!"
