More Info:
  • Leah Greenblatt

    It's a broad, helter-skelter farce whose best bits hinge almost entirely on the considerable charms of its star.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    The film ricochets between Tammy being an oblivious cartoon goblin and a textured, sympathetic human being who just wants to be loved. Perhaps if the film had catered a little less to McCarthy's comedic gifts — the curse-word fugue states, the slapstick humor, the non sequiturs — the end result would have felt more balanced and rewarding.

  • Nathan Rabin

    A crowd-pleasing, proudly working-class celebration of large women, old women, broke women, and women who love women, Tammy isn’t just consistently funny and unexpectedly touching and tender, it’s also genuinely subversive.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    McCarthy is aggressive and foul-mouthed while Sarandon is sensible and laid-back. And they’re clearly destined for trouble, which leads to solid if scattered laughs. Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    When you’re balancing ridiculous slapstick right out of a live-action cartoon with well-written, well-acted scenes that feel completely of this world, that’s a tough balancing act, and “Tammy” isn’t quite up to the task on a consistent basis.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The movie shoves McCarthy and Sarandon in a car together quickly, without much in the way of expository set-up.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Tammy, in the end, feels like a pulled punch. McCarthy promises a haymaker she never quite delivers.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Aisha Harris

    The playful energy between McCarthy and her completely game co-star, Susan Sarandon is more than enough to keep the movie humming along.

    Slate Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    They have little feel for the technical side of filmmaking; the imagery is flat and the editing amateurish. Most shots seem held for a beat too long or too short, wreaking havoc with the comic rhythm. Nonetheless, McCarthy and Falcone’s attempts to make Tammy more flesh-and-blood than a figure of fun are often poignant.

  • Jordan Hoffman

    Basically a drama-in-disguise. Unfortunately, it’s a formulaic and extremely uneven one, albeit with a number of sympathetic performances. Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    McCarthy co-wrote the film with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directed and appears as the heroine’s wormy tyrant of a boss. Their collaborative mojo results in some winning sweetness, but not a lot of hilarity.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Tammy is a road trip movie and, like many road trip movies, it embraces a meandering, aimless tone. It's often said for films of this sort that it's the journey that matters, not the destination. Unfortunately, in this case, neither is worth the price of admission.

  • Sara Stewart

    This pastiche of sitcomy episodes never gels into a plot.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Courtney Shea

    As a script it is uneven and tonally inconsistent – best as a brainless, gross-out comedy, less successful when striving for emotional poignancy.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Tammy’s journey, as they like to say in movieland, is into self-worth. Yet the far more interesting trip here, at least until her self-actualization kicks in, is through an America of lousy jobs, tyrannical bosses, nickel-and-diming poverty and real-looking women.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It just plonks down the actress and a handful of stellar co-stars without much in the way of a script, storyline, or actual jokes. Yet you may still come out with a smile on your face. It’s very odd.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The still youthful-looking Sarandon playing a grandmother is a jolt, especially since she doesn’t resemble the doddering roustabout she’s supposed to be playing. Maybe that’s why the director Ben Falcone (McCarthy’s husband and, with her, the film’s co-writer) gives Sarandon a full head of gray hair.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    I hesitate to label the result as bad or good. It’s just … off.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    There are some laughs and, at least on screen, more than a few tears. But it doesn't come together with the kind of satisfying punch a comedy should deliver.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The fact that it stars the extremely funny Melissa McCarthy is both its saving grace and incredibly frustrating.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Falcone’s film is an unsteady mix of broad comedy and indie heart, asking us first to roar at Tammy’s ignorance and outrageousness and then to be moved at this lovable misfit muddling toward love, maturity, and a better life.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Falcone’s attempts to spin this flat, formulaic comedy into an affecting character drama are frustrated by filmmaking choices that work against a sense of persuasive reality.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Lee Dallas

    Ben Falcone's film is an almost plotless doodle, with low stakes made even lower thanks to the bratty passivity of its titular antiheroine.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Where 1991's "Thelma & Louise" was funny and action-filled, Tammy's story is thin, cringe-inducing and, worst of all for a comedy, not funny. Jokes land with a thud and the pacing is leaden.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    McCarthy and first-time director Falcone must have assumed that tossing a drunk and a dunce into a Cadillac would negate the need for a motive or even a script.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Tammy is a mess, and it feels like a real misstep for this rising star.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Unimaginatively filmed and of a misbegotten construction, Tammy goes all in with its namesake character (played by McCarthy), hanging the entire movie around a person who is immediately and irreversibly established as being thoughtless, unperceptive, destructive, and uneducated.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    This one is bad — a little comedy that flops in big ways.

    Time Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    [McCarthy] and her husband Falcone (who also directed) have created a character comedy that's missing both comedy and character.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    It’s a waste of a good cast as well as a serious trip-wire for McCarthy, who may know what’s best for her talents but, on the evidence, needs a deft-handed outsider to make sure she’s maximizing them.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Grating attempt at comedy, the latest failed attempt to capitalize on McCarthy's considerable charm.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    If anyone could harness McCarthy's dynamo presence while protecting her from looking bad, it should be Falcone. Instead, Tammy suggests no one had the heart to tell this hot Hollywood couple that it wasn't working.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    As a first-time director, Falcone has trouble maintaining a specific tone - the movie wobbles back and forth between sentimentality and silliness, sometimes even within the same scene.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Tammy is a boring, unfunny road movie that limps along idly, consisting of a string of nonsensical set pieces and halfhearted stabs at character development that come across as off-putting and odd.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Tammy is not just a celebration of everything vulgar and stupid in the dumbing down of American movies. 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.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Tammy is a bummer, not least because McCarthy’s fans know she’s better than this.
