Explorers Bartholemew Hunt and Leslie Edwards are setting forth against nature across the country on a journey to the Pacific Ocean against rivals Lewis and Clark. Along the way they have many mishaps and misfortunes. Written by
Elias, the shop owner that Bartholomew Hunt goes to for a bath, a shave, and a tooth removal is loosely based on Charles Willson Peale, a painter of pre-Revolutionary times that also practiced taxidermy as well as dentistry. See more »
In the tavern at Snake's Bend, Hunt challenges Hidalgo to a drinking duel. A close-up shows Hidalgo raising his pewter mug, but when he's drinking we can see his mouth, beard and nose through the mug's missing bottom, and obviously there's no fluid in it either. See more »
[Talking into Bidwell's ear in his hand]
Bidwell? Bidwell! I fear the bear has killed Mr. Bidwell sir! He's failed to communicate with the me, by way of his ear...
It doesn't work that way, it doesn't work anyway! But even if it did, he couldn't talk through it!

I'm from Montana and had to study Lewis and Clark. Almost Heroes is great it makes fun of all the details from their journey. Down to Sacajawea and the waterfall passage. My favorite quote is at the start of the movie when Hunt says "If you wanted a tracker why didn't you choose William Clark?" and Edwards responds "Don't you think I tried that." If anyone likes Chris Farley they will enjoy this film. Some people says his comedy wasn't a physical as before. Did those people watch this movie. How about the eagle scene or at the party. Or how about the bar scene or the dentist. At the start of the movie his is dragged on stage to be hung. Some people on this board probably don't like Chris Farley. Or maybe they don't like Matthew Perry. That however shouldn't mean they should hate every movie with them.
