    Tommy Boy is one of those films that you can watch over and over again. It seems to be on every "Buddy Movie" list and it's always out at Blockbuster. show more

    Has genuine life in it. It's an energetic comedy that consistently looks for and finds unexpected ways to be funny. [31 Mar 1995, p.C8]

    His good-natured slob routine compensates for a lot of the film's dead spots, and the picture winds up a modest cut above the usual vehicle tailored for a would-be film star. show more
