tommy boy

hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, i will...

tommy boy (chris farley), after taking seven years to scrape through college, returns to take a job at his father's (brian dennehy) auto-parts factory. the thing is, tommy is a hapless idiot and, when his dad drops dead it's up to him to head out on the road with richard (david spade) - his father's miserable snippy assistant - and sell enough parts to keep the factory from being sold...

now, i remember this being an uproariously funny film, filled with giggles, but it has dated really badly. the delivery, timing and quality of most of the films gags are really bad, which is a shame. there are still two pretty funny, enjoyable bits though... carpenters and hair.

easily avoidable.

the dvd is £2.99 from
