"If you're looking this film up, you're dumb enough to enjoy it."
So you're looking at me and wondering if this is worth going renting.
Are you aware that it stars Chris Farley?
Good.Now ask yourself a few questions.
1) Was Beverly Hills Ninja funny? If you say yes, go rent Black Sheep. If you say no, move on to the next question.
2) Was Tommy Boy funny? If you say yes, go rent Black Sheep. If you say no, move on to the next question.
3) Have you ever watched a Chris Farley skit and said "that guy, the fat one, he's really funny!" If you say yes, go rent Black Sheep. If you say no....
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING READING A FUCKING CHRIS FARLEY MOVIE REVIEW?!?!
You're smarter than that, dammit. Go rent The Usual Suspects or The Sweet Hereafter or something - a real movie.
This is just a Saturday Night Live skit that never ends. That's not to say that it won't appeal to people, or even be a guilty pleasure in the way that people watch Empire Records even though it's a hacked up Liv Tyler piece of shit, but you'e not going to find kismet in Black Sheep.
Farley plays a dumb-fuck who's brother is running for Governor. Farley keeps messing up for his brother, so his bro assigns a helper monkey in the form of David Spade to make sure everything goes smoothly.
This is basically Tommy Boy with some lame-ass political angle thrown in, so if you dug Tommy Boy, this might piss you off as a cheap copy. Alternatively, your brain might not function in such ways and you might think "DUH. FAR-LEE GOOD."Let's be straight up here. You're going to get nothing out of this film other than a few yuks, but if you really enjoy Farley flicks then your life probably needs all the yuks it can get.
Knock yourself out, Sparky.
