Movies in Review: “Tammy”

Oh how I love me some Melissa McCarthy. So I was surprised at how uninterested I was to see this movie. I don’t know…first glance at the trailer and I felt like McCarthy was trying to do way too much. I was hoping my feelings about McCarthy’s performance were wrong, because I needed a good laugh badly.

Whew! I’m happy to say I did get my laugh on, and was happily entertained for the most part. This isn’t one of McCarthy’s best films, but she did her thing. My complaint is that the story was a bit too all over the place. If it wasn’t for McCarthy I don’t think I would have been able to sit through this movie. Susan Sarandon was an excellent side kick for McCarthy. They had me cracking up. It was like watching a comedic geriatric version of Thelma & Louise…lol. These two go on a pretty entertaining adventure, but something about this movie will still have you feeling a little empty. There were storylines that should have been eliminated or expanded on. Luckily McCarthy does a pretty decent job of making you forget about it.

I was surprised and pleased with how entertaining this movie is. If you try to take this movie too seriously, you won’t enjoy it. Not a bad movie for a matinée or a fun date…B-

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.

    Good review Taj. It could have been funnier, had McCarthy not been so annoying. Or Tammy, for that sake either.
