Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stupid is apparently in."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
"Tommy Boy is a good belly laugh of a movie."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"re-do it as a 10-15 minute motivational tape as a seminar for business and sales people"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Against the odds of a feeble script and uninspired direction the duo do, in fact, grow on you, and there are a smattering of silly laughs."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"...Spade and Farley are so good together..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's some indication of the wit involved that Farley is reduced to cracking fat jokes at his own expense."
‑ , Time Out
"As a sketch for a Saturday Night Live show, it would have been a tour de force. But as part of this rather unimaginative movie, it's just a bit with a burning desk."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Raunchy, funny, and not for younger kids."
‑ Alex Orner, Common Sense Media
"Inane and tasteless comedy of obesity and incompetence."
‑ , Film4
"There's nothing to grasp, nothing that gives off that good feeling of enjoying a comedy."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
"The most peculiar aspect of the movie is that some of it is played straight."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"The movie is an assembly of cliches and obligatory scenes from dozens of other movies, all its better."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Farley and Spade have a definite chemistry, and they do their best to pick up the slack. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"If this pairing sounds like movie magic to you, we're sure you'll love the picture."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's not high art -- but it IS pretty damn funny, and sometimes that's more than good enough."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
