She wrecks her car, loses her job and finds her husband in a compromising position with their neighbor. It's time for Tammy to hit the road, but without money or transportation, her options are limited. Her only choice is a road trip with her grandmother, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), who has a car, cash and an itch to see Niagara Falls. It's not the escape Tammy had in mind, but it may be what she needs.

Tammy (2014) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Andi Zeisler Bitch Media We've expected makeover narratives and personal-growth realizations from women on screen... in Tammy, we get a character - and her creator - patently uninterested in most of that journey. For Hollywood, that's radical. Jan 22, 2021 Full Review Tammy (2014) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Jason Bailey Flavorwire 'Tammy' is a disappointment, because it asks an energetic, unpredictable performer to play it so calculatingly, frustratingly safe. Jun 18, 2016 Full Review Tammy (2014) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Evan Williams The Australian The filmmakers never quite find the balance between real-life experience and freewheeling nonsense that drives the best comic road movies. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 17, 2014 Full Review Tammy (2014) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Robert Sims Lights Camera Austin Tammy is the slob comedy Alexander Payne is too dignified to write and direct. Jan 22, 2022 Full Review Tammy (2014) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Michael J. Casey Michael J. Cinema Dead on arrival. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 1, 2021 Full Review Tammy (2014) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Richard Crouse Richard Crouse By the end of the credits Tammy doesn't feel like a comedy - although there are several giggles sprinkled throughout - as much as it does a waste of talent.

Aria R MUST watch movie, always a good option to watch. Great actors and funny plot Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Ricky C One of the worst movies ever created. Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Nathan G What a piece of garbage film - it's Susan Sarandon's 'finest' performance - meaning she is one of the worst parts of the film. Man oh man that one cannot act. Sheesh. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Alec B Not great but it is a little better than the strangely hostile negative reviews. It is a great role for McCarthy, crass yet enduring. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Beth T I love Melissa MCarthy, but this movie was so cringe I couldn't even watch all of it. I fast forwarded it through big chunks. And I NEVER do that. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/26/23 Full Review StephenPaul C LOL, the funniest 01 hour: and 37 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
