Tammy is not Terrible!

When considering what movie I wanted to look up a critique of, I had a bit of trouble. I usually don’t have time to watch a lot of movie, but over the weekend my roommates and I made time to watch the movie Tammy. Some trailers for the movie can be found here.

The critique I found was on the popular movie review site: Rotten Tomatoes

The review gives Tammy, played by Melissa McCarthy  a low score of 23% and an average rating of 4.3/10.

I feel that these ratings are inaccurate and I disagree with the critics consensus.

I found the movie to be extremely entertaining and down-right hilarious! I was laughing so hard that I cried in numerous parts throughout the film. The story line was rather scattered but I thought it had to be considering the crazy dynamic of the character. In a critique by Roger Ebert, he agrees with me for the most part. He commends McCarthy for her humor and compliments her spontaneity when it comes to improvisation and unexpected punch lines. He does comment on the fact that this is not the first time that we see McCarthy in this discombobulated, vulgar, and rather ruthless character. One ridicule that he gives is that we want to see McCarthy in another time of role. We know she can play this type of character, but what else does she have to offer. I entirely agree with him in this critique. Although he gives the movie 2.5 out of what I feel should be a well deserved 3/3 stars, I would have to say that his critique is well thought out and explained. You can check out the complete critique by Roger Ebert here.

Tammy is one of the only movies I have seen recently, and fortunately for me, it happens to be one of the better ones. If you haven’t spent time laughing the night away with Tammy yet, I would definitely recommend you do so, you wont regret you did.

Tammy is just plain funny

Many forms of PR have been used to help communicate the event and to raise awareness of Kings harvest.

We have sent out multiple emails informing Ambrosian email users of the event.

The emails are only one method of out reach to inform students of the event. Unfortunately, college students are busy. And although we are constantly on our phones and computers, we still find a way to avoid checking our emails. The class realizes this issue and is well aware of it because students in the class are guilty of this themselves.

In other efforts to actively promote the event, the class has set up multiple forms of social media to get the word out about the event:

It’s Sweet to Tweet

So I am a 21 year old college student, and I have never had Twitter. I know what Twitter is and I know people who use it, but I never gave in and got wrapped up in the Twitter world; until this class.

After much reluctance, I now have a Twitter that I most likely will use only for this class. After messing around with it a little bit, I found Tweeting to be kind of fun and I now think that It’s Sweet to Tweet!
