The movie is an assembly of cliches and obligatory scenes from dozens of other movies, all its better.

Tommy Boy unspools just as you expect it to, and the comedy is as unrewarding as the story

There's nothing to grasp, nothing that gives off that good feeling of enjoying a comedy.

As a sketch for a Saturday Night Live show, it would have been a tour de force. But as part of this rather unimaginative movie, it's just a bit with a burning desk.

Farley and Spade have a definite chemistry, and they do their best to pick up the slack. [Blu-ray]

It all falls to Farley, who plays a good bonehead but isn't quite ready for prime time.

This Tommy Boy is no pinball wizard, but you may leave the theatre wishing that the character were at least deaf, dumb, and blind.

This is predictable and very silly stuff, but there are some solid laughs.

The most peculiar aspect of the movie is that some of it is played straight.

It's some indication of the wit involved that Farley is reduced to cracking fat jokes at his own expense.
