Tammy Movie Quotes

The comedy film was written by the husband-wife team of Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy. Falcone also directs McCarthy in the starring role. "Tammy" opened in theaters on July 2, 2014.

With few good options, she robs her former employer then hits the road with her quirky grandmother, Pearl (Susan Sarandon).

En route to Niagara Falls, a place Pearl always wanted to visit, the two somehow find time to bond with Pearl coming in as an unlikely life coach for the lost in life Tammy. As her past catches up with her, Tammy is forced to face her life head on and decide whether she will continue her downward spiral or move forward in a positive manner.
