Tammy

Out Now On-Demand

Coming in hot.

Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) is Tammy, who - after losing her job and discovering her scumbag husband has been unfaithful - hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother (Susan Sarandon). This is the directorial debut from actor Ben Falcone (who won the 'Directors to Watch' award at Palm Springs Film Festival 2014), who also co-wrote the script with McCarthy.

How do you solve a problem like Melissa McCarthy? That question feels inescapable after watching her try to powerlift "Tammy," her newest and least funny comedy, all by her lonesome.

The film progresses from merely unfunny to unconvincing to dull.

A well-meaning personal project that never rises above the level of amiable mediocrity ...

A mostly mirthless vehicle for McCarthy.
