Tommy Boy is a 1995 road comedy film directed by Peter Segal, written by Bonnie and Terry Turner, and Fred Wolf. It stars former Saturday Night Live colleagues Chris Farley and David Spade. The film tells the story of a socially and emotionally immature man who learns lessons about friendship and self-worth following the sudden death of his industrialist father. The film did well commercially, but received mixed reviews from critics.
At Marquette University, Thomas R. "Tommy" Callahan III (Chris Farley) barely graduates after seven years and returns home to Sandusky, Ohio. His proud father, industrialist and widower Thomas "Big Tom" Callahan, Jr. (Brian Dennehy), gives him an executive job at the family's auto parts plant, Callahan Auto. In addition to the job and a new office, Big Tom reveals another surprise for his son: a woman he had met at a fat farm, Beverly Barrish-Burns (Bo Derek). They are to be married soon, and as a consequence, Tommy will have a stepbrother, Beverly's son...
