Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) is having a bad day. She's totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint and, instead of finding comfort at home, finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It's time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she's broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option-with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie's principal intention is to make you laugh at a loser, and revel in scenes from which polite people would instinctively turn away."
‑ John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"McCarthy's performance of unself-conscious uncouthness celebrates the freedom to be undignified. And, still, it's being misused."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Co-written by star McCarthy with her director (and real life husband) Falcone, "Tammy" is a dramadey that actually works best during its most serious moments."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"... Tammy is Melissa McCarthy at her best, frank and raw but in a much more honest way than we've seen before."
‑ Mark Hughes, Forbes
"The screenplay contains some big laughs scattered between a series of labored and uninspired gags that don't play to the strengths of its stars."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"It's obnoxious when it means to be comic, and excruciating when it wants to be moving."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"Tammy is an object lesson in the art of directing, which is all it would have taken to turn this near-miss into an instant classic. Though that may be true of most mediocre movies."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
""Tammy" is a movie that is painful, pathetic, and more willing to engage in a joke about getting fingered by Boz Scaggs than anything even remotely introspective."
‑ Drew Taylor, The Playlist
"Susan Sarandon is terrific; delivering a superb and shaded turn for what could have been a broad "rude grandma" phone-in."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
""Tammy" is tedious and dull, no matter how hard McCarthy tries to liven it up"
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"It's a rambling, pointless and labored attempt to cash in on Ms. McCarthy's fan base without respect for any audience with a collective IQ of 10. And it's about as funny as a liver transplant."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"A lot of good actors are wasted in this film in bit roles, including Allison Janney, Sandra Oh, and Dan Aykroyd. The ones with bigger roles, like Mark Duplass and Kathy Bates, are wasted, too."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Falls into that narrow crevice between cringe comedy and working-class drama. Then, deep underground, long out of the range of humour, it flails where no one can hear it, drawing scenes out into shapeless, squalid things."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"While there is little in the way of plot, "Tammy" is more character-based than the typical summer comedy, and it's held up by strong performances by McCarthy and a very game Sarandon."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Tammy forgoes cheap laughs in favor of heart."
‑ Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
