Tuesday marked the 20th anniversary since the release of Tommy Boy, the 1995 comedy film starring Chris Farley and David Spade. Although widely panned when initially released, the movie’s become more well-received over time and is now considered a cult classic. A little over two years after Tommy Boy came out, Farley died of a drug overdose at the age of 33. To honor both the anniversary of the movie and Farley’s passing, Spade posted the following touching image on his Instagram account.
Im told that today is the 20th anniversary of Tommyboy. Aside from that making me older than fuck i have to say thanks to everyone who saw it and has said nice things about it over the years. I was very lucky to be in this movie with one if the all time funniest mother fuckers the late great chris farley. Its hard to read but on the poster it says " david, lets stick together! Signed by chris. We gave each other autographed posters as a joke back then. Now i see it in my office and skim over it because if i think about that for more than 5 seconds ill start bawling. Like now. As chris would say. What a pussy #RIP
