#38 Tommy Boy – “I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull’s ass, but I’d rather take a butcher’s word for it.”
Its been said that all the good die young. Particularly this reigns true in the case of a Mr. Chris Farley. With his oversize exterior, and obnoxious antics, he was able to again walk that line between insanity and finding humor. The main trait that kept him able to walk that tight rope so perfectly, was his likability factor. Well take that and mix it with the most smarmy, dry, ironic comedian of that time in David Spade and you have one of two hilarious comedies in Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. Tommy Boy and his quest to avenge his father’s brake pad company from falling to the waste side and bought out by a richer more wealthier competitor, is forced to do so by becoming a salesman and carries none of the necessary requirements to be able to handle this task. But nonetheless, throw in over the top bees scenes, a fat man in little coat, and physical objects to the head and you have yourself one hell of a funny movie. Check out my favorite scene from this movie.
