I remember when I first heard the news on the radio when I was still in high school about the sudden, and tragic, death of Chris Farley. With an ability to make audiences laugh with an overweight mixture of dialogue and body language, Farley was truly a gifted actor. Therefore, I was pleased to hear of the release of Tommy Boy "Holy Schnike" Edition and be reminded on what a wonderful comedic pair David Spade and Chris Farley were and how much Farley is missed.

Tommy Boy Special Edition

Party animal Tommy Callahan (Chris Farley) is definitely a few cans short of a six-pack. But after seven years, Tommy's finally earned his diploma - and a cushy job at Callahan Auto Parts. Returning home, Tommy gets some more great news: his dad (Brian Dennehy) is marrying a real "10" (Bo Derek), and Tommy will get the stepbrother (Rob Lowe) he always wanted. Awesome!

But as fast as you can say "Who killed the keg?", the family business starts tanking. Now Tommy's got to hit the road with his dad's right-hand man, a smug number-cruncher (David Spade). And what these two don't know about salesmanship could fill a book - and a riotously funny movie! Saturday Night Live stars Farley and Spade "take off like rockets" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times) in a road comedy where every turn leads to laughter. Ask for it by name: TOMMY BOY!

The two-disc set for Tommy Boy "Holy Schnike" Edition features the original film in widescreen-enhanced format plus an entire disc dedicated to featurettes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, tv spots and more. For further info, take a look at the features below:
