Summary:
Party animal Tommy Callahan is definitely a few cans short of a six-pack. But after seven years, Tommy's finally earned his diploma -- and a cushy job at Callahan Auto Parts. Returning home, Tommy gets some more great news: his dad is marrying a real "10, " and Tommy will get the stepbrother he always wanted. But as fast as you can say "Who killed the keg?, " the family business starts tanking. Now Tommy's got to hit the road with his dad's right-hand man, a smug numbers-cruncher. And what these two don't know about salesmanship could fill a book -- and a riotously funny movie!

Summary

Summary

Saturday Night Live star Chris Farley had his first starring role in this frankly lowbrow comedy, which teamed him with fellow SNL cast member David Spade. Big Tom Callahan (Brian Dennehy) is the street-smart owner of a company that makes auto parts, and one day he'd like his son Tommy Callahan III (Chris Farley) to take over the business. Trouble is, Tommy Boy is a fat, dim-witted slob who took seven years to get a business degree and has no idea how to run a business. His father's sudden death unexpectedly puts Tommy Boy in charge, with his dad's weasely assistant Richard (David Spade) trying to guide him. However, what no one knows is Big Tom's wife, the young and beautiful Beverly (Bo Derek), married him only for his money while holding on to her lover, Paul (Rob Lowe), whose presence she explains by telling people he's her son. Beverly and Paul are waiting for Tommy Boy to run the company into the ground so they can take over, sell it off and earn a quick payoff. However, what Tommy Boy lacks in smarts (and hygiene), he makes up for in determination, and he hits the road with Richard for a long sales trip in a last ditch effort to rescue his father's legacy. Tommy Boy was a major hit that turned Chris Farley into a screen star; sadly, died a little over 2 1/2 years later. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
