“..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]

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
