Tammy (Oscar® nominee & Emmy® winner Melissa McCarthy -- Mike & Molly, Bridesmaids) is having a bad day. She's totaled her clunker car, gotten fired from her thankless job at a greasy burger joint, and instead of finding comfort at home, she finds her husband getting comfortable with the neighbor in her own house. It's time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she's broke and without wheels. The worse news is that her grandma Pearl (Oscar® winner Susan Sarandon) is her only option -- with a car, cash and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape that Tammy had in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shotgun, it may be just what Tammy needs. The multitalented McCarthy writes and produces this raucous road-trip comedy, featuring an all-star laugh ensemble including Kathy Bates, Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janney and more
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Melissa McCarthy remains an engaging screen presence, but her efforts aren't enough to keep the jumbled Tammy on track.

Common Sense Says
Uneven, mean buddy comedy about family and identity.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tammy is an irreverent, uneven buddy comedy that's heavy on depressing moments, primarily because the main character (Melissa McCarthy) seems lost and bears the brunt of the film's jokes. Even her grandmother (Susan Sarandon) forgets that she has feelings. It may be too bitter a pill for tweens and young teens. There's also lots of swearing (including everything from "dammit" to "motherf--ker") and drinking; one character is an alcoholic who behaves cruelly when she's drunk and also relies on prescription drugs obtained illegally. It's implied that a couple has sex in the back of a car; nothing sensitive is shown, but the car rocks. Also sexual language/references/discussions.
