Couch Potato Theater: TOMMY BOY (1995)
Join us for this very special edition of Couch Potato Theater as we look back and celebrate one of the best comedies in the last 25 years, TOMMY BOY. Tommy Boy is a 1995 road comedy film directed by Peter Segal, written by Bonnie and Terry Turner, produced by Lorne Michaels, and starring former Saturday Night Live castmates and close friends Chris Farley and David Spade. This was the first of many movies that Peter Segal has filmed with former SNL castmates. The film was shot primarily in Toronto and Los Angeles under the working title "Rocky Road".
TOMMY BOY Plot Synopsis:
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?
Join Kevin, Kyle and Hayley as they take a look back at this fan favorite comedy with a fantastic cast and see how it has remained a true classic to this day, and a film that represents everything that Couch Potato Theater is all about.
