‘Tammy’ throws herself down and gets back up again

“Tammy” has Melissa McCarthy written all over it. Which makes complete sense, considering it’s a movie written and produced by Melissa McCarthy and directed by her husband, Ben Falcone. For the role of Tammy, McCarthy dons a bad wig, puts on cheap clothing and drives a car right into a deer. Literally. Tammy gets fired from her job, finds her husband having an affair, and decides to go on a road trip with her alcoholic grandmother. And even though you feel bad for Tammy, she isn’t exactly an angel herself.
