Storyline

Everybody remembers Chris Farley, the big loveably guy from Saturday Night Live. Before he was the Beverly Hills Ninja, or Tommy Boy, or even before he was in Black Sheep or Almost Heroes, Chris was on Saturday Night Live and played characters like Matt Foley the energized motivational speaker, Bennet Brauer the gross-out news correspondent, Chippendales' dancer, and many more!

The Best Farley Film Ever
27 June 2001 | by (Parts Unknown) – See all my reviews

Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, Almost Heroes, Beverly Hills Ninja..... Those movies where Farley was in the leading role can't even compare to this Saturday Night Live compilation film of Chris Farley. He will definitely be missed.

If for some reason you didn't enjoy some of Farley's "newer" stuff, check out this film because it is absolutely hilarious. This is Chris Farley at his best. I have watched this film over 20 times already, and the "bill swerski's super fans" skit cracks me up every time. Highly recommended.
