Tommy Boy (1995)

Eh. It is what it is. Thankfully, that "it" isn't nearly as atrocious as I'd expected. There are indeed a few laughs scattered around, and Chris Farley proves more charming than the commercials let on. I can imagine an alternate world where his self-deprecation and ambition led him past "fat-guy-falls-down" material and into worthwhile projects. Still not all that great, though. It's too harmless to hate, but that doesn't make it instantly likeable.

Grade: C+
