“I think your brain has a thick candy shell.”
When we talk about formative movies of my childhood, Tommy Boy is top 3. I wore my VHS tape out and finally we’re getting to talk about it here on the pod. I enlisted Jules, my 90s comedy buddy to review this one. And HOLY SCHNIKES!
The both of us had a literal Baja blast talking this iconic comedy buddy road trip film starring legends Chris Farley and David Spade. We could basically quote the entire thing and we spend the first half of the episode talking about the state of comedy past and present, classic SNL casts, and the literal genius and melancholy of the subject matter.
Off-topic rants include: Anna Nicole doc, the new Barbie movie, and comedy films when we were teens
