LODI — The Lodi Public Library will host a comedy double feature Sunday at the library at 201 W. Locust St. in the community room beginning at noon.
The comedy double feature will include “Tommy Boy,” starring Chris Farley and David Spade. Tommy Callahan played by Farley, inherits a near-bankrupt automobile parts factory in Sandusky, Ohio. His brand new stepmother, Beverly (Bo Derek), wants to cash out and close, but Tommy’s sentimental attachment to his father’s employees spurs him to make one last-ditch effort to find someone who will buy their products. With his father’s tightly-wound assistant, Richard (David Spade), in tow, Tommy hits the road to scare up some new clients.
Following that feature presentation will be “The Waterboy,” starring Adam Sandler and Kathy Bates. Raised by his overprotective mother, Helen (Kathy Bates), Bobby Boucher Jr. (Adam Sandler) is the water boy for a successful college football team coached by Red Beaulieu (Jerry Reed). When Beaulieu fires Bobby, he takes up the same position for a losing rival team, led by despairing Coach Klein (Henry Winkler). After witnessing Bobby beat up a player who teased him too much, Klein adds him to the roster as a linebacker. Soon, Klein's players are championship contenders.
Both films are rated PG-13, children under 13 years of age must be given consent by a parent or guardian to watch the films.
