TOMMY BOY (Theatrical Review USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Tommy Boy—
a good comedy in the class of Laurel and Hardy and The Three Stooges—delivers mature comedy for the adult/older teen audience. From its beginning to its end, it’s classic Farley. Add David Spade, Brian Dennehy, Rob Lowe, and Dan Aykroyd to the mix and there’s laughter just waiting to be emitted.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The comedy is good. Chris Farley delivers and David Spade just sits back and follows Farley’s lead. It’s a good film for the adult and older teen share.
