Tommy Boy Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0 from 1 reviews
view all

Not-too-bright rich kid Tommy (Farley) teams up with snide, officious accountant Richard (Spade) to save the family auto parts business after dad (Dennehy) buys the farm. Tommy and Richard must deal with a conniving stepmom and stepbrother (Derek and Lowe), a ruthless rival (Aykroyd), and a road trip from hell to drum up some new business. Not as bad as it sounds, but inconsistent direction and too-familiar characters offset the amusing chemistry between Farley and Spade.

Tommy Boy
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

Tommy Boy has to be one of my favorite movies. This movie had me laughing all the way through. Not to mention all the hilarious actors in Tommy Boy, such as, David Spake, Chris Farley, Dan Aykroyd, And Rob Lowe. If your in the mood for a good laugh, then this is the movie you want to see. This movie usually comes on comedy central a lot. If I'm flipping through the station and this movie is on, I'll usually watch it. The road trip Tommy and Richard go on is hilarious. So much stuff goes wrong. This is definitely a movie that will keep you laughing.
