Tammy – 2 out of 5
I like Melissa McCarthy (which I stated in my Disclaimer) but there was something about the trailers for Tammy that really didn’t make me feel like I needed to rush out and see the film. Now, after watching it, I realized that I made the right choice.
|Tammy's robbery or a screen shot from The Asylum's version of The Purge?|
|He's trying to send her to Hell with his mind, isn't he?|
|What a waste...Tom Green would already be humping this thing and half the cast of |
Jackass would already have it eaten most of it and started peeing on the rest of it...
|Was the dance really for comedic purposes or just|
to eat up time?
|"I'll swallow your soul!"|
|I like Mark Duplass but I can't be the only one who|
thinks he looks like Sam Eagle from The Muppets.
|"Yeah, if I could just drink this beer, that'll be great. Thanks."|
I like Melissa McCarthy and find her very funny. She stole the show in Bridesmaids, had a great scene in This is 40, and was a lot of fun with Sandra Bullock in The Heat. However, in Tammy as Tammy, McCarthy lacks the charm and timing that she’s proven she can bring. Matters aren’t helped by the piss-poor material of the script and story—which, sadly, was written by her and her husband; the director of this film, Ben Falcone. In the past, McCarthy has played the foul-mouth miscreant nicely but this time around she is a swearing, uneducated, and very clumsy buffoon and it just didn’t come off as amusing or natural for her. McCarthy is naturally endearing for me and there’s a charm about her that I find adorable but Tammy was a character that had little likable about her and it served more as a disservice to have McCarthy portray her.

|For some reason, I think only Kathy Bates can pull|
off the Easter colored shirt with a fucking skull ring.
|Smile or hoping the people around you can't hear you are passing gas?|
