“..this pastiche of sitcomy episodes never gels into a plot..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..this is a genuinely amusing film. Just be sure to arrive punctually..”
by David Hiltbrand [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..there's nothing about this movie that's either so bad or so good that it sticks in the memory. The uneven comedy offers a few sporadic chuckles but it's neither extreme enough nor inventive enough to allow for more..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

“..McCarthy plays to her strengths but misses the mark in this uneven comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2 of 4

“..as a story, Tammy is predictable: odd couple on the open road - high jinks and interpersonal drama ensue. As a script it is uneven and tonally inconsistent - best as a brainless, gross-out comedy, less successful when striving for emotional poignancy..”
by Courtney Shea [Globe and Mail]
1.5 of 4

“.."Tammy" tries to be many things: road movie, coming-of-age-in-middle-age comedy, rom-com, poignant drama about family relationships, slapstick comedy. It does none of these things very well because it's trying too hard..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
Review rate : C-

“.."Tammy" is a road trip movie that veers all over the place..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“.."Tammy" is a bummer, not least because McCarthy's fans know she's better than this. We all miss Sookie, but we miss Melissa even more..”
by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post]
2 of 5

“.."Tammy" had potential. McCarthy's first moments are the classic comedy outcast-loser introduction, similar to Bill Murray's in "Stripes." But it quickly meanders, losing steam until the long sojourn at the lesbian party..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

by DON KAPLAN [NY Daily News]

LYLE :

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]
