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

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.

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