Terrible
2 July 2014 | by trublu215See all my reviews

Tammy features Melissa McCarthey as herself or so it seems. The idea that we must buy into this woman gorging herself with Cheetos and Doritos for the entire length of a feature film is utter torture. Tammy just limps into gear, act after act, it feels like the same joke over and over again. We get it, McCarthey is overweight and has a foul mouth, we knew it in Bridesmaids, we knew it in The Heat, and we knew it very well in Identity Theft. Why should we care to see it again in a film that is, quite honestly, one of the worst films I've seen all year? The answer is, we shouldn't. Tammy boasts a pretty good cast from Susan Surrandon to Kathy Bates and Toni Collette, it has all the ingredients to make a pretty good film...except its not. Tammy is a terrible film that keeps us in first gear and never moves and feels three hours longer than it actually is. The jokes are stale, the acting is wooden and the plot is so ridiculous and unfunny, I'm surprised they didn't make it a family drama. On my long list of problems with this film, my number one is McCarthey. Now, I personally have enjoyed McCarthey over the last 4 years, a couple funny movies and a great sitcom, she is usually good. However, her performance as Tammy is stale and boring. One thing in particular that really sets me off is the fact that Tammy is portrayed as a complete pig yet she lives in a decent place that is CLEAN??? I just don't get it. Susan Surrandon is wooden, over playing the typical grandmother saying outrageous things all while teaching her grand babies something special and witty. It doesn't happen here. Quite frankly, Tammy is like a long and drawn out trailer park adventure that teases an exit while you're on the verge of insanity with every second that passes. Overall, stay far far away from this film, it isn't even worth a rental. Even if you are madly in love with McCarthey and you love her humor, you will still hate this film.
