It's not high art -- but it IS pretty damn funny, and sometimes that's more than good enough.

A bone-headed farce that embraces its banality with sheer jubilation. Farley and Spade bring their inspired and nutty SNL antics to frenzied form.

Astounding for its number of effective gags, and it is a comedy that loses nothing on repeat viewings.

If you're expecting classic comedy, you likely won't enjoy Tommy Boy, but if you have Saturday Night Live-level expectations, it will be a pleasant surprise.
