Tommy Callahan Jr. is a slow-witted, clumsy guy who recently graduated college after attending for seven years. His father, Big Tom Callahan, owns an auto parts factory in Ohio. When Tommy arrives back home, he finds he has a position at the factory waiting for him. His dad also introduces Tommy to the new brake pad division of the factory and to Tommy's soon-to-be stepmother, Beverly, and her son Paul. But when Big Tom dies, the factory threatens to go under unless the new brake pads are to be sold. Therefore, Tommy must go on the road to sell them, along with the assistance of Richard, Big Tom's right-hand man. Will Tommy save the company, or will the factory, and the town, go under?Written by

Forget it, I quit, I can't do this anymore, man. My head's about to explode. My whole life sucks! I don't know what I'm doing, I don't know where I'm going. My dad just died, we just killed Bambi, I'm out here getting my ass kicked and every time I drive down the road I wanna jerk the wheel into a Goddamn bridge abutment!

If you haven't seen Tommy Boy, I just feel sorry for you. Where I live, it's been everyones favorite comedy for ten straight years. Also, Black Sheep is another great one with Chris Farley and David Spade. This movie is pure, clean comedy unlike some of todays films. You'll laugh the hardest you've ever had, and you'll wonder why you hadn't seen it earlier. When Farley and Spade are on the same screen, it's beautiful. They contrast each other perfectly. I don't understand the low rating on this site. It's a shame people rated it so poorly. Spade really has some good one liner sarcasms that are gut splitting, and Farley has idiotic one liners the are hilarious. Even if you don'y like this movie, it gives you social status because its the talk of parties everywhere.
