“..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]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

PERSECUTED :

“..terrible attempt at a political thriller for the religious right is aimed not at Christians in general but at a certain breed of them..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT :

“..as the stars roam those gardens and vistas in their jaunty flapper couture, the story feels shapeless, un-tailored, defiantly off the rack..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

SEX TAPE :

“.."Sex Tape" doesn't seduce, it doesn't surprise and it certainly doesn't satisfy. It only leaves you feeling a little taken advantaged of..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
