Tommy Boy(released Mar/95),stars SNL actors David Spade and Chris Farley in their first and best movie together.Chris Farley is at least given somewhat of a decent plot to work with and,unlike Black Sheep,Spade wasn't comedically emasculated and his acerbic wit and sarcasm are left intact and make a good counterpoint to Farley's character of a man-child.
The plot involves the Callahan family.Tommy(Farley)graduates college,finally after seven years(!),and returns home to Sandusky to his father's car parts business.His father Tom Sr.(Brian Dennehy) welcomes the newly graduated Tommy home with open arms and gives him an office position right away.Tom Sr.has been widowed for some time and he decides to get married to one Beverley Burns(Bo Derek),who has a "son" Paul(Rob Lowe).At the wedding reception Tom Sr.takes a heart attack and passes away leaving the entire business to Beverley.But the business needs a loan it can't get and the only hope the firm has of staying afloat is for Tommy to hit the road to try and sell their new line of quality brake pads.With the aid of Tom Sr.'s former assistant Richard(Spade)they travel the open roads but get no where fast,due to Tommy's inexperience and Richards lack of delivery.Finally through perseverance the pair come up with a winning strategy and the orders start coming in.Eventually they compile enough to virtually save the company.
Things are looking good for Callahan auto parts but a wrench is thrown into things in the form of Beverley's son Paul.He changes the computer records and out going shipments get all fouled up and the customers are cancelling orders.In the meantime both Richard and the former receiver/shipper have seen Paul and Beverley kissing in a very non-motherly/son way.It is found out they are husband and wife.

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 take my word.
You can get a good look at a bull's---
No wait...
It's your buy.

This is a movie that just cranks up one laugh after another. When you take an overweight, hysterical, crazy, out-of-your mind party animal person such as Chris Farley and put him next to the cynical, laid back, smug little character of David Spade, and you're in for a good time. This movie makes me laugh harder every time I watch it, discovering new little funny things that I never even noticed before!
Thumbs up for Chris Farley's acting - it takes a skilled person nontheless to portray someone like this. And David Spade plays his roll exceptionally well, too. Chris Farley's character is funny just because of WHO he is. David Spade is funny because of WHO Chris is, too. It's a pretty funny combo.
Chris Farley's character is the dopey yet loveable Tommy Callahan, a recent college grad. who has just come off seven years in school. ("A lot of people go to college for seven years," he says. "I know," David Spade replies. "They're called doctors.") His father is the owner of Callahan Auto Parts, which is a top seller of brakpads.
And when his father remarries, and Tommy finds out that she has a son (his new brother that he never had!), his life seems like it couldn't get any better. But when his father suddenly dies after the wedding ceremony, and the company is in jeaporday, Tommy himself must go out and sell brake pads to save the company, with poor Richard (Spade's character) at his side. Believe me, this would have been a lame plot had it not been a comedy. But it works very nicely for this movie.
There are several innapropiate scenes with women, such as when Tommy first meets his future step-mother (Bo Derek - get the picture?), and when Richard sees a woman skinny-dipping in a pool. And there's some innapropiate jokes along the way, so this movie probably wouldn't be very good for kids. But for preteens and up, this is a fun comedy that's sure to make you wet your pants, at least!
