In 2011, the American moviegoing public opened it’s arms and embraced the sassy and fabulous Melissa McCarthy when she appeared in Bridesmaids. We laughed at her gruff role alongside prim and proper Sandra Bullock in The Heat. When Identity Thief was released, we started shuffling uncomfortably and looking at our watches. Now, with the release of Tammy, we’re going to briskly walk out the door and not look back. McCarthy plays the title character, a dimwitted fast-food employee who loses her job before the opening credits have ended. She manages to wreck her car and she finds out her husband has been fooling around on her. Together with her boozin’ grandmother (a horribly miscast Susan Sarandon), the two go on a road trip and irritate everybody. McCarthy co-wrote this with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directed. I’m guessing they didn’t have anybody around to simply tell them “no

NUVO Tammy: Thin and sloppy, but often funny A road movie pairing up Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon largely pays off, with the comedy leavened by dramatic moments and just enough sweetness. by Ed Johnson-Ott 07/02/2014

Salt Lake City Weekly Tammy I’m happy to live in a world where Melissa McCarthy can be a movie star. Even if you assume that she’s working a single stock character—an irrationally confident force of nature whose size might be used for physical punch lines—it’s baby steps of progress that she can now headline a Hollywood comedy that in years past might only have gone to a male comedian. by Scott Renshaw 07/02/2014

LA Weekly Tammy Attempts to Housebreak Melissa McCarthy It’s a relief, after the wretched Identity Thief, to see movies whose makers love Melissa McCarthy as much as audiences do. Identity Thief's comic centerpiece was predicated on the idea that McCarthy having sex is a hilarious gross-out, like she’s the pie Jason Biggs once had to diddle.
