“..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]

THE CONGRESS :

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

LUCKY IN LOVE :

“..is the typical Hallmark Channel movie with a light-hearted story, some beautiful people and some OK acting..”
by [Movieman's Guide to the Movies]

THE NOVEMBER MAN :

“..overly familiar spy film serves its star well..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

PREDESTINATION :

“..sibling filmmakers Peter and Michael Spierig offer a skillful and atmospheric adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's 1960 short story " - All You Zombies - ," and if it's better in the intimate early stages than in the more grandiose later passages..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FELONY :

“..thanks to Saville's tightly controlled direction and a superlative cast, the mere exchange of glances builds as much suspense as the kinetic action sequence that opens the pic..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE PRINCE :

“..the action sequences are competently directed, but exhibit virtually no flair or invention, as Patric simply stands there shooting at waves of anonymous henchmen until they all fall down..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]

ANOTHER ME :

“..the ham-fisted script is incapable of a multilayered approach, while the helming and editing are at the level of mediocre TV..”
by Jay Weissberg [Variety]

MARDAANI :

“..a bland version of Liam Neeson's Taken..”
by Sukanya Verma [rediff.com]

THE ONE I LOVE :

“..so is this terrific movie..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KINK :

“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
