Tommy Boy on #laughbreak
Tommy Boy starring Chris Farley, David Spade, Brian Dennehy, Bo Derek, Rob Lowe tribute
We’re paying our respects to Brian Dennehy today as we learned of his passing due to natural causes earlier today.
For this episode of #laughbreak, we go back to 1995 for the hilarious “Tommy Boy.”
Brian Dennehy played the father of Chris Farley’s character, Tommy Callahan.
Dennehy passes away in the movie leaving Tommy Boy the nearly bankrupt auto parts factory in Sandusky, Ohio.
Before passing away, Dennehy married Beverly (Bo Derek) who’d become Tommy Boy’s new stepmother. All she’s interested in is the money she hopes to gain with her co-conspirator Rob Lowe who plays her ‘fake son.’
Tommy Boy’s sentimental attachment to his father’s employees spurs him to make one last-ditch effort to find someone who will buy their products. With his father’s tightly-wound assistant, Richard (David Spade), the two hit the road for a trip that’s paved with 1,000 laughs.
The movie was budgeted at 20 million dollars and brought in over 32 million dollars that year at the box office
