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.

Anyone who has seen Saturday Night Live when Chris Farley was on knows the excitable, not-too bright characters that he plays. This time, he is able to bring more depth to this guy as Tommy Callahan, the son of an autoparts company president who walks through life without a care. Although Richard (David Spade) gets all the good lines, Tommy gets all the laughs.
While Farley and Spade went on to take another swing at the "Buddy Picture" genre (Black Sheep), this one is clearly the best of them all. The comedic timing of both of these seasoned actors, perfected on the SNL stage, makes for a seamless dialogue and you are sure these two have known each other their whole lives.
An acting nod should also go to another central character, Richard's car, which of course, takes a tremendous beating by Tommy, as well as an angry deer. The interaction between Spade and Farley is perfectly timed, and the writing is pure genius. Appearances by Brian Dennehey, Bo Derek, and Rob Lowe are all well acted, and add to the hilarity. Overall, a great movie.
