Tammy, movie review

I’d been wanting to see this movie for a while. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting. The trailers made it seem like a straight up comedy.

Although there was humor in the movie, it wasn’t the main theme. This felt more like a drama to me, the actors were taking their roles very seriously and it didn’t take long for humorous moments to turn into heartache.

It was a good movie, but I think the marketing for it was a little off. If you watch it, intending to spend a few hours laughing and having a good time, you’ll be a little disappointed when you discover you’re actually in for a drama that is more likely to be aired on the Lifetime movie channel than Comedy Central.

If you are fan of McCarthy though, you should enjoy it. The comedy and tone are similar to that of, “Identify thief” and “The Heat.” Although I would personally say this movie drove the drama and emotion bit a tad stronger than the other movies did.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
