Falling just shy of the magic $100m mark might not seem like much of an achievement, especially when you consider that $84m of that was from US domestic revenue, but Tammy is remarkable due to the fact that it’s a film bereft of any merit, one whose success can be attributed solely to Melissa McCarthy.

Her shtick might be wearing thin, reviews were generally quite scathing, and it was mis-sold as a laughfest, when in truth it was part middle-of-the-road trip, part family drama, with a few moments of intended mirth for the trailer. But her fanbase, built from Bridesmaids upwards, turned out in droves to cement her reputation as one of the few bankable female stars working in Hollywood today.
