Quote
On Wednesday she joined a prestigious group of entertainers to have her handprints and footprints preserved in cement outside the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

But what was a career highlight for Melissa McCarthy has been spoiled by the terrible reviews for her new movie Tammy, a family affair directed by her husband Ben Falcone and written by the couple.

Indeed, one damning review by the New York Times Observer even went so far as to call the R rated comedy 'about as funny as a liver transplant'.

I've never watched her TV show, Two Fat People Being Fat (or whatever it's called) but I get the impression that her whole schtick is, well, being fat, making her a PFP (professional fat person).
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

I just don't get her appeal. This movie (and her whole schtick) seems to be The Garbage Pail Kids sequel.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.
