"Tammy" with Melissa McCarthy - Harmless, Weekend Fun

"Tammy" with Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon

What better way to wind down from the work-week with a movie.

And it doesn't always have to be a blockbuster, or an indie with a serious underlying story or a thriller with a complex plot.

This weekend I went for pure fun!  Don't believe the critics.  Everything isn't for critique - sometimes you just want to laugh.

Melissa McCarthy plays "Tammy," a woman who loses her job and her husband in the same week.  That's not funny.  But the adventure that she embarks on with her grandmother (played by Susan Sarandon) -- I know, Susan Sarandon playing Melissa McCarthy's grandmother -- I still think of Susan Sarandon as 'sexy.'  

Anyway, it's entertaining and a great way to unwind with a bag of popcorn, a soda and a box of Raisinets.  

You can't take everything seriously.
