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!

Some of Chris Farley's worst and best in one video!
10 September 2001 | by jellyneckrSee all my reviews

I bought this video one night after I had bought other SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE videos. Most of the SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE videos are full of non-stop laughs. This one is a mixed bag. In some of the skits on the video, Chris Farley is hilarious and in other skits, he's not funny at all. I believe that he is funnier when he is in movies. He was funny in SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, but I think that it was when he started making movies that he started to become one of the most hilarious comedic actors of all time. This is a video that Chris Farely fans will probably want. I'm a Chris Farley fan and it's only an okay video to me.
