Coming home, fresh, actually well done, from college, Tommy Callahan arrives to his hometown to find everything...the same. His father owns the big ol' auto business and everyone's great, until his father dies. With the town leaping on Tommy's back for safety of their jobs, he must take it to the streets and save the business and become the salesman he was meant to be. This would be a great drama film, but it's a Farley comedy, so expect one wild ride.
The film takes a dive into some of the greatest and most memorable scenarios. From Tommy slamming into doors, burning models, and ruinings cars to the memorable lines and bickering between he and fellow co-star, David Spade. The film also has a fine supporting cast, from Dan Ackroyd, Brian Dennehy, and even Rob Lowe as the antagonist.
I could sit here and point out my favorite scenes, but what good does that do. Anyone knows any impersonation or recreation cannot even equal the amount of good fortune one will have when watching the film, for the first time. All I can say is, this is a fine film. This is comedy when it was still important to introduce bold characters, great storyline, and even some drama to tie in emotional aspects. If it were up to me, this film would be sitting on AFI's shelves. But, it's not...so take my word.
You can get a good look at a bull's---
It's your buy.
An entertaining "road trip" story with a bit of soul!
Very highly recommended.
Tommy Boy has not become a comedy favorite among fans of this particular genre due to the storyline... It's because of the performances and the undeniable chemistry between Farley and Spade. Chris Farley goes all out, as he always did, with his physical comedy - while David Spade stuck to his guns as the sly, sarcastic character who prefers picking people apart with his commentary. They compliment each other very well and their interplay is hilarious throughout the movie.
There is nothing amazing about the story, but there is something about the way it's done that will win you over. There are countless lines in this movie that have lived on and been quoted over the years...
The "Holy Shnike" Edition comes with tons of extras on a bonus disc (and at Best Buy, you also get a really cool Tommy Callahan bobble-head doll as part of an exclusive offer). There is some really excellent behind-the-scenes footage on the bonus disc that gives you more insight into the comic pairing of Farley and Spade, as well as a look at the life of Chris Farley. Great material.
