nice visit from long lost friend
3 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a nice documentary about Chris Farley. It takes his life chronologically. It shows an idyllic upbringing with his loving family. He's definitely the class clown. Then it's on to Second City and Saturday Night Live. All the great comedians tell wonderful stories about him. It's a lovely fun time. The last act has more about his addiction problems. It's not hidden in the movie but it doesn't dwell on it. It's probably the only glaring thing missing. It doesn't so much gloss over Farley's problems as much as explain it away. After the midway point, a tougher documentary would have zeroed in on his addictions. It takes the material with a lighter touch. It's to be expected with a film that has the full cooperation of his family and friends.
