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

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.

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.

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.

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