When Tammy is leaving the jail, it says it's the Jefferson County jail. In reality, the Jefferson County jail (Louisville, Ky) is located in downtown Louisville, which does not have any outdoor recreation area, nor is the area grassy like they portray. It is a very urban area. See more »

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.
