[a bear has come into camp]
My nose itches.
Don't scratch it.
Feels like there's a bug up in there.
You scratch your nose. You're dead.
Well, I don't know what's worse. The bear or my itchy nose.
I think it's leavin'.
I'm going to scratch it!
[begins scratching his nose and the bear turns around and bites his leg]
The bear is worse! The bear is definitely worse!

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.
