You'll laugh the hardest you've ever had, and you'll wonder why you hadn't seen it earlier. I won't go into great details about this film, basically because there aren't many worth mentioning. The label is credited with launching the careers of notable legends Afrika Bambaataa, Coolio, Queen Latifah, House of Pain, De La Soul, and Naughty By Nature. I was one of those maligners, I must admit. It's ugly to look at and boring as hell! Chris Farley was a great comic actor who had amazing potential - he will be sadly missed. The movies we have though, give us a glimpse of what could have been. He is given a job at this father's auto part company, even though he isn't very smart.
I guess they can't, I guess they won't I guess they front; that's why I know my life is out of luck, fool! The scene where he sets the cars on fire, and later the deer scene, make for a pure laugh riot. There is not one moment of this film that I didn't like. His father, Big Tom Callahan, owns an auto parts factory in Ohio. Chris Farley plays Tommy Callaghanhe mega successful company 'Callaghan Auto Parts' has to go on the road to stop the company going under after Big Tom dies. This movie actually is quite good and well written. That's really all I have to say about this film.
I don't understand the low rating on this site. When Tommy arrives back home, he finds he has a position at the factory waiting for him. Years after his death, I still hold that to be true. But when Big Tom dies, the factory threatens to go under unless the new brake pads are to be sold. This produces a hilarious argument culminating in Spade smacking Farley in the head with a 2x4.
Richard, a smart and sarcastic man, is reluctant to help Tommy. Chris Farley was hilarious in this film, him and Spade are magic together. And now there's Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo followed by sequel Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. Tommy, a hopeless 20 something who just graduated college returns to his hometown of Sandusky, Ohio. An old Carpenters song is playing on the radio and the two are emotionally singing along with it. There are plenty of great passages that I hear everyday from this movie.
Spade really has some good one liner sarcasms that are gut splitting, and Farley has idiotic one liners the are hilarious. TommyBoyRecords Coolio HipHop TommyBoy GangstasParadise goldenera. There is no life here. There are almost no laughs. After Big Tom suddenly dies, Tommy and Richard have to try to sell half a million auto parts to save the company from bankruptcy. This is one of the few movies to have ever made me laugh until I cry. Will Tommy save the company, or will the factory, and the town, go under? This movie is full of great laughs and everybody will enjoy it.
But when Big Tom dies, the factory threatens to go under unless the new brake pads are to be sold. That alone is funny enough, then the hood of the car pops up and they skid wildly out of control. It was so sad about Farley's untimely death in 1997, but a credit to his genius is 'Tommy Boy'. Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me? They contrast each other perfectly. Perhaps soon there will be Spiderman: European webs are Hotter. Yes it's not particularly sophisticated. The only time I have ever laughed harder in public was during the snowman scene in Dumb and Dumber.
The plot is embarrassingly bad. His father, Big Tom Callahan, owns an auto parts factory in Ohio. When Tommy arrives back home, he finds he has a position at the factory waiting for him. If you haven't seen Tommy Boy, I just feel sorry for you. This is your typical junk comedy. Yes, from the whole cast. This movie was dead on arrival.
He died before being able to develop fully into a great comedic actor. You will laugh your butt off. This is one of my favourite comedy films. His dad also introduces Tommy to the new brake pad division of the factory and to Tommy's soon-to-be stepmother, Beverly Barish-Burns Bo Derek , and her supposed son Paul Barish Rob Lowe. Also, Black Sheep is another great one with Chris Farley and David Spade.
The jokes are hilarious and you will be laughing every minute of this movie. In order to save the company Tommy must sell at least a half a million of the company's break pads in order to pay off the bank. There's really not a whole lot more to say than that. Tragedy strikes though, when Tommy's father dies and the company is in danger. It has a good storyline, good acting, great scenery, adventure and some brilliant gags! I pretty much know it by heart. But you can completely ignore that and simply luxuriate in Chris Farley's antics. Tommy Boy was the best of Farley's cinematic efforts.
