I don't like Melissa McCarthy. I personally never found her funny. Her latest attempt at humor, Tammy, did not change my mind at all. In fact it only solidified the idea that I will go out of my way not to watch her films. Picture if you will a remake of Thelma and Louise, without Gina Davis, dumb downed to the lowest level of jokes possible l...
