Plot Summary
For Tammy (Melissa McCarthy), a burger-joint waitress, a bad day keeps getting worse. She wrecks her car, loses her job and finds her husband in a compromising position with their neighbor. It's time for Tammy to hit the road, but without money or transportation, her options are limited. Her only choice is a road trip with her grandmother, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), who has a car, cash and an itch to see Niagara Falls. It's not the escape Tammy had in mind, but it may be what she needs.

  • As a first-time director, Falcone has trouble maintaining a specific tone - the movie wobbles back and forth between sentimentality and silliness, sometimes even within the same scene. show more

  • Where 1991's "Thelma & Louise" was funny and action-filled, Tammy's story is thin, cringe-inducing and, worst of all for a comedy, not funny. Jokes land with a thud and the pacing is leaden. show more

  • The fact that it stars the extremely funny Melissa McCarthy is both its saving grace and incredibly frustrating. show more

    I am a HUGE Melissa McCarthy fan and think all of her previous films were a riot but this was dull. Was very disappointed Not one of the worst movies I've seen (that goes to Beetlejuice) but save your money and wait until it comes out on video.

    We just saw Tammy this afternoon. It started out funny but it seemed to drag on. We are both fans of Melissa, but were disappointed in this film.
