Historic Moments in Film - Tommy Boy

Adam Schleichkorn Monday, May 12, 2008 ,
"Richard, is there a mark on my face?" It's so hard to settle on one scene from a film that's this historic, but this is one of it's clear cut pinnacle moments. This is the scene right after the two stars fight on the side of the road, and they go to the diner to eat. Tommy explains to the waitress why he sucks at sales, and unknowingly exposes his true potential to Richard. There's really not one un-funny scene in this entire movie though, as this was by the best performance from David Spade, and the late great Chris Farley. Forget about what Dan Taft says in his Top 10 Lists, this has to be in the top 3 funniest movies of all-time. "I'm like Jojo the idiot circus boy, with a pretty new pet". Genius.
