In the last five years, actress Melissa McCarthy has skyrocketed to the top of the comedy heap and has headlined some of the biggest comedies in recent memory.
Many of these comedies were critically acclaimed, and McCarthy earned great praise for her performances.
2014’s “Tammy” was not one of those films.
The film was written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, Falcone also took the helm as director and had a small part.
“It’s a rambling, pointless and labored attempt to cash in on Ms. McCarthy’s fan base without respect for any audience with a collective IQ of 10. And it’s about as funny as a liver transplant,” Rex Reed of the New York Observer said of the film.
“Tammy is an object lesson in the art of directing, which is all it would have taken to turn this near-miss into an instant classic. Though that may be true of most mediocre movies,” Richard Brody of the New Yorker added.
Though the film didn’t do well with critics or audiences, the bloopers from the film still exist and one could argue that they are funnier than the actual film.
