Quotes

Tammy: [angrily] I do blame you. I blame you for shoving me out of a hotel room last night and letting me sleep outside like a dog. I blame you 'cause you're already on your second bloody Mary. It's not even 10:00 A.M.
Pearl: This is vegetables.
Tammy: [voice breaks] I blame you for packing up your shit and making me come home from school when I was ten years old and finding an empty fucking room. That's what I blame you for. You know how shitty that was for a little kid? You left me all alone.
Pearl: Well, you weren't ...

Had so much potential
10 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's films like these that make me ask 'Why do directors/producers/writers try and fill comedies with sentimental claptrap?'If they want to make a comedy they should make something funny. If they want to make a tear-jerking drama about a granddaughter struggling with her lifelong string of failures and her grandmother's alcoholism then they should release all the stops and make something truly tragic.

Tammy tries to do both and therefore fails twice.

Melissa McCarthy is a hilarious actor and there are moments of brilliance in this film however they are separated by long periods of sentimentality for which i did not sign up.

I hope her next film is a bigger success.
