Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park presents Dynamic Duos: TOMMY BOY Quote-Along.
THIS JUNE, WE SALUTE DYNAMIC DUOS! A month-long salute to the pals, the sidekicks and the partners. You can’t always go it alone. Sometimes you need a buddy at your side to pick you up when you fall and keep you grounded when you get too full of yourself. A pal, a sidekick, a partner. A Robin to your Batman.
This month, 22 JUMP STREET reunites partners Jenko and Schmidt on the big screen. That inspired the Alamo Drafthouse and BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH.,the magazine centered on the monthly programming theme at Alamo Drafthouse theaters, to examine some of our favorite on-screen dynamic duos. Well, except for THE Dynamic Duo. That was maybe a bit too on the nose for us.
Alamo Drafthouse has planned a month-long salute to dynamic duos with screenings of BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID, E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE, MY LITTLE CHICKADEE, TOMMY BOY and more!
In BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH., you can read about the special love shared by Butch and Sundance. You can join an argument about whether or not E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL is actually a buddy movie. You can look back at the unique pairing of Mae West and W.C. Fields in MY LITTLE CHICKADEE. Or perhaps you want to go in-depth into the father/son dynamics of INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE. You might also visit the Circle K, because we’re spending some time analyzing the friendship of Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan.
TOMMY BOY – It's been more than sixteen years since Chris Farley passed away, and yet I find myself still quoting him on an almost daily basis. Whether I'm opening my fridge ("You could put a six pack of b… soda in here.") or reaching for a dinner roll ("You're naughty!"), the spirit of Chris Farley remains alive and well in my vernacular.
Sure, I've seen other comedies since TOMMY BOY was first released in 1995, but none of them have managed to oust the words of Tommy Callahan Jr., adorably idiotic man child, from the top of my vocabulary.
And then there's the deliciously deadpan wit of David Spade, who plays Richard, Tommy's coworker and reluctant babysitter. If mockery is a science, then Richard's jibes at Tommy ("Did I catch a niner in there? Were you calling from a walkie talkie?") should have earned him the Nobel Prize.
Together, Spade and Farley made up one of the most hilarious duos in the history of cinema, and we'll celebrate them at this special Action Pack screening by quoting along with all of our favorite lines, i.e. basically the entire movie. Join us for a night of cow tipping, maniac dancing and deer that aren't quite dead. And fat guys, don't forget your little coats! (Sarah Pitre)
