Tommy Boy

PG-13 CC

Party animal Tommy Callahan (Chris Farley) is definitely a few cans short of a six-pack. But after seven years, Tommy's finally earned his diploma - and a cushy job at Callahan Auto Parts. Returning home, Tommy gets some more great news: his dad (Brian Dennehy) is marrying a real "10" (Bo Derek), and Tommy will get the stepbrother (Rob Lowe) he always wanted. Awesome! But as fast as you can say "Who killed the keg?", the family business starts tanking. Now Tommy's got to hit the road with his dad's right-hand man, a smug number-cruncher (David Spade). And what these two don't know about salesmanship could fill a book - and a riotously funny movie! Saturday Night Live stars Farley and Spade "take off like rockets" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times) in a road comedy where every turn leads to laughter. Ask for it by name: TOMMY BOY!

How can I give this movie 5 stars? While on the surface this is not a film for the ages, it is perhaps one of the funniest films I have ever seen. Chris Farley is at the top of his game - which includes the usual pratfalls and physical comedy. One of the strong points includes the character of "Tommy Boy". An odd blend of self loathing ("I have what Dr.'s call a bit of a weight problem..I once ate a whole bear claw and got it stuck right here..), combined with a charming sense of confidence in himself. The scenes where Chris Farley and David Spade are trying to sell brake pads to customers are absolutely hysterical. I have played the scenes for sales personnel as great examples of how "not to sell". The movie is so full of classic one-liners, that it gets funnier every time I watch it. I recommend the movie, not as an artistic masterpiece by any means, but a funny and touching story. If you do not laugh out loud, you are taking life way too seriously!

I just love this movie! It is smart, funny, and it even has heart. Chris Farley was a comic genius, he could make you laugh without even trying. And, he and David Spade made a great team, the funniest comic team since Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. It's just too bad they only made two movies together (three if you count "Coneheads", but they weren't really together in that movie, just both in it, and that movie wasn't so great anyway), I would have liked to have seen more. The basic story of this movie is that Farley plays Tommy Calahan, a burnout college student whose father (Brian Dennehy) owns a brake pad company. When his father dies, Tommy must take over and try to keep the company afloat with the help of his dad's assistant (Spade), and keep his evil stepmom and her "son" (played by Bo Derek and Rob Lowe) from usurping the inheritance. Through this somewhat cliched storyline, we get tons of laughs, and more than a couple of dramatic moments, proving it's not just some silly little film. If you love to laugh, you can't get go wrong here. I also recommend Farley and Spade's second movie, "Black Sheep". It's not quite as good as this one, but still very funny. It's really a shame that personal and health problems took this man's life, there is definitely a huge void in the world of comedy without him (that was not intended to be a fat joke, I mean that seriously). Please see this movie, it is very good.

I did not expect much out of this movie. That could be the reason I love it so much. Farley and Spade were terrific together. One of the few times an SNL cast worked well on the big screen. I had to get the DVD now that I have worn out my tape. I also appreciate that this movie does not have to be crude, vulgar or violent to be entertaining. Goes to show what can be done when they take the time to write a decent script. As with any movie, I recommend renting the movie first.

Amongst the classics of 90's comedy arrive Wayne's World, P.C.U., Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore...and of course, Tommy Boy. Where would the world of comedy be, without this movie? Well, it'd be a notch down as far as range goes, but other than that, it'd just be missing a great film.
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---
No wait...
It's your buy.

Chris Farley is a wonderful physical comedian and knows how to work a skit or situation like a master. This movie works well because it features a delightful marriage of physical comedy (courtesy of Farley) with cerebral comedy (courtesy of Spade).
An entertaining "road trip" story with a bit of soul!
Very highly recommended.

This is one of the best movies to come from any of the cast members of Saturday Night Live. Chris Farley and David Spade are an amazing comic duo and it's a terrible shame that we only got to enjoy two of their movies before Farley's untimely passing.

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.

Highly recommended!
