Chris Farley and David Spade star. The dim-witted heir to a factory must save the company from his stepmother.

After seven years of college finally yields a degree, a dim-witted party animal returns to work at his father's company, only to be forced on the road with an anal-retentive numbers-cruncher to try to save the failing business.

After Tommy barely graduates from college, he returns home to the Midwest where his father, the owner of an auto parts factory, immediately employs his dumber-than-dumb son.

While Tommy was away at school, his father had fallen in love with a beautiful woman and now desires to marry her.

During the wedding ceremony, however, Tommy's dad tragically dies from a heart attack, which puts the company's--and its 300 employees'--future at stake.

It is up to Tommy to use any available intelligence to keep his father's factory from going under.

This road comedy uses the seriously comedic chemistry between the late Farley and his Saturday Night Live buddy David Spade to brilliant effect.

This movie is rated PG-13 for sex-related humor, some drug content and nudity.
