Calling this movie a comedy is feeble at best. Melissa McCarthy is funny on her own but as Tammy, she fell short. There are a few funny scenes but not enough to classify it as such. This is an example of stupidity, bad decisions (drinking and driving should never be a comedic go to) and inappropriate/illegal behavior. The star, in the beginning, turns out to be Tammy's grandma (Susan Sarandon), as the story continues Tammy plays a larger role that finally feels like part of the story. We see an immature, self-absorbed and weak young woman begin to blossom and learn. Family is a true consistent throughout the movie. Acceptance and love work their way into the story through the creative writing of the screenwriters. This movie seems disconnected at first but manages to find its groove. You'll laugh, you might cry, you'll definitely feel. An insane compilation of ideas that comes together and works in the end. Here's hoping that Melissa McCarthy will be more successful with her next endeavor.
