This script needed some major work

I've been a huge supporter of comedic actress Melissa McCarthy so far, but this may be the break. I'll probably give her more chances, but this one's a bit of a flop. It's mostly due to the script, but it was written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone (who also directed). They really needed some help with their script. Frankly, the movie is largely plot less, never getting its story off the ground, and, worst of all, it's laughless. Identity Thief had a pretty awful script, too, but at least it brought the funny. The biggest problem here is that the story, as they have written it, should have been a dramedy. Instead, McCarthy and Falcone are not brave enough to embrace the dramatic aspects of the script. They're dead-set on making a stupid, slapstick, R-rated comedy, and they aren't going to let the audience feel any genuine emotion. Tammy begins with the protagonist (McCarthy) getting fired from her crappy, fast-food job only to go home and find her husband cheating on her. She walks a few houses down to her mom's house, swearing she's going to just leave. Her alcoholic grandmother (Susan Sarandon) is sick of it at her daughter's house, too, so she decides to bankroll the operation. This movie would suck a whole lot more without Sarandon. She's actually quite excellent, and has some complexities (she's a major alcoholic, for one). What this movie needed to be about was the two of these people bonding. It has a certain charm when the two women are interacting. The problem is, neither of them is given enough background to characterize them. Every time they seem to be getting somewhere with either of the characters, like I said before, it feels like they get too afraid the audience might start to feel an emotion so they have Melissa McCarthy crash her jetski or something. And, again, like I said before, some of this crappiness in the script could have been alleviated if the film were just ever funny. There's one sequence, where McCarthy has to rob a fast food restaurant, which provides some laughs, but the entire sequence was played in the trailer. Since it was the only really funny sequence, I can't blame them. McCarthy's brazenness was funny in her last two movies, but she kind of cranks the obnoxiousness up to eleven, particularly near the beginning. Oh, and then there's the love interest, Mark Duplass. Man, are they ever unsure that they should allow him to have a romantic relationship with the overweight protagonist. Duplass himself always has a look on his face which says, "This is to fund my next mumblecore project," and the character only seems to exist to stand there and tell McCarthy that she's okay. He's very much equivalent to the personality-less, female love interests in every other movie that's been released this summer, except they seem to not be able to bring themselves to let the two form a romantic relationship on screen.

Such a Letdown

A great cast could not overcome a dull script. Random, ill developed characters popping in and out of a storyline that was all over the place. If we laughed more than a couple of times I'd be surprised. I guess you could call it a drama-dy but it fails at either. A silent theater during a Melissa McCarthy comedy? Say it ain't so! Oh wait...we did laugh .... At my husband groaning about how awful it was. Sad because I was looking forward to this one. I give it 2 rather than 1 just because it wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, but I would advise waiting for an out of theater option if you feel you must see this because you love Melissa. It's pretty disappointing.

McCarthy and Falcone shoot blank after blank from their comedic firearm

I can usually find some redeeming qualities in most if not all movies... not so here. Tammy is simply not funny.

The movie is poorly written, poorly acted and cannot be saved even with the brilliant Kathy Bates and a bit-part by Dan Akroyd. Foul language exists to try to boost scenes that are stone dead unfunny and it goes over like a lead balloon. I was tempted to ask for a refund.

Don't even waste your time watching it when it comes out on Netflix, you'll be spared the bore-fest.

The IMDb has a 10-line requirement for leaving reviews but to be frank, it hard to write 10- lines about a movie that is simply not entertaining. I suspect that even hard core McCarthy fans will have a hard time trying to swallow this one.
