Why to Watch - Tommy Boy

Chris Farley was the funniest man to ever live and that is a well known fact. Tommy Boy truly is the definition of a movie that’s funnier the 9th time, and it really angers me that movies like this aren’t even made anymore. I guess Chris Farley left some big shoes to fill, no pun intended.
