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… More

Consensus: Melissa McCarthy remains an engaging screen presence, but her efforts aren't enough to keep the jumbled Tammy on track.

John Anderson
Wall Street Journal

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.

Wesley Morris

McCarthy's performance of unself-conscious uncouthness celebrates the freedom to be undignified. And, still, it's being misused.

Presumably to expand her (McCarthy's) repertoire, there is a deliberate attempt to cut down her sweat-slob persona and soften those rough edges to test new ground here that is akin to inventing a humanitarian nuclear bomb.

It's obnoxious when it means to be comic, and excruciating when it wants to be moving.

New Yorker

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.

Only two people were asleep when I went to go see Tammy, but by the time I left, all of us were unconscious. Helpless dogs trapped in a dark purse of a movie.

Rex Reed
New York Observer

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.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

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.

While the effort can be appreciated, the vehicle was running on fumes from the start.

Don't get the hate on this one. Yes, it's stupid, but it's meant to be. Dumb comedy similar in tone to Stepbrothers. I laughed quite a few… More

Let me start this with saying that I'm a big Melissa McCarthy fan. I really liked "Identity Thief" and "The Heat". But, when I saw… More

A few laughs here and there, but overall, it's just not very good.
KJ Proulx
When your film has almost no point to it and it's a comedy that is pretty much laugh-free, you must be able to impress with your cast, and least that is… More

She hit the road. The road hit back. Mediocre Drama/Comedy! Melissa McCarthy knows she has created this bloated sassy bitch with a kind and well meaning heart… More

Tammy: Grandma, I don't know where I'm going. It is unfortunate that Tammy does not quite work overall. Here we have a character-based, R-rated… More
