Tommy Boy Movie Review
Are you kidding me? You haven't seen "Tommy Boy?" You serious? Didn't think so.
"Tommy Boy," the flagship comedy for late comedian Chris Farley, is a modern day classic. Sure, old people won't like it, but who cares about them, right? The movie, full of slapstick, sarcasm and typical Farley/Spade jokes, is a laugh fest from beginning to end. About a young idiot who is forced to go on the road to save his father's company from being sold to a conglomerate, "Tommy Boy" succeeds through Farley's charisma, Spade's deadbeat sarcasm and an array of jokes that in and of themselves would be pretty stupid but combined, for some reason, work flawlessly.
The movie is now out in a new "Holy Schnike" DVD edition, and, while I can't be sure what was included on the original DVD, this version definitely has the fans in mind. Full of deleted scenes, extended scenes, long documentaries and a gag reel, among other things, "Tommy Boy Holy Schnike Edition" is a must-own for any fan.
