To keep him out of mischief, Al forces one of his aides, Steve Dodds to keep an eye on him during the election. However, this is easier said than done... Written by

At the Governor's Press conference, the television stations attending are real Seattle TV stations: KING-TV, KCPQ-TV, and KOMO-TV. KOMO even went as far a actually being on location and loaning equipment for the shoot. They have done this before and since: Harry and the Hendersons (1987) and Life or Something Like It (2002) See more »
Mike's hair when he begins to leave the room in which he was smoking with the Jamaicans. While leaving, his hair is done. In the next shot, as he actually leaves the room, his hair is a mess. See more »
I'm not far from dragging you out of the car and beating you to dust.
You should work up to that, kinda leaves you nowhere to go.

I really didn't think TOMMY BOY was all that funny. I didn't. But I sure did like BLACK SHEEP. The film is a good film if you want a laugh. But you need to have the right sense of humor. Gene Siskel obviously did not have the correct type of humor, as he is reported to have walked out on this film. Well, that was one of his biggest mistakes, because there are far worse movies out there!
Chris Farley was funny as hell, I don't think anyone should object to that. David Spade still is pretty funny (although he lost a lot of points with me when he did JOE DIRT).
I thought this film was actually pretty good. The other members of the cast were good: Tim Matheson, Gary Busey, Grant Heslov, and Bruce McGill. All of them were funny as hell. Maybe with the exception of Gary Busey's character, who I must admit was pretty stupid. The film had a good story though, and it was sweet-natured along iwth being majorly crude and funny. I recommend ALMOST HEROES and TOMMY BOY *if* you liked this movie. BLACK SHEEP gets 4/5.
