Review
Zealous and packed with rampaged and twisted humour, I thoroughly enjoying and watching TOMMY BOY and it felt magnificent that it is spot on with an actor duet of Chris Farley and David Spade. Like Carrey and Daniels had done for DUMB AND DUMBER (click here), it is a another road trip buddy comedy that only follows two characters who must learn about themselves. Farley who plays the hapless idiot slightly chubby and Spade who portrays the smart guy, together this duo made themselves a definable comical pair and they have every intention to be over the top, have fun of and creating a generosity of laughs. This is the rise of their short partnership compromised with only two movies ending with BLACK SHEEP as their last one together.

TOMMY BOY is another gob-smacking treat to watch, if you're in the mood for a good laugh and I actually liked this mile-aged comedy.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
