"Chris Farley was funny once..."
1 stars

Why are movies like this made primarily for my age group? I don't understand.

Oh, I forgot. I'm a girl. Girls don't like stupid shit.

You might disagree, so I'll give you a plot summary: (you have been warned) Tommy is a big, dumb clumsy spoiled brat. What a surprise that Chris Farley got cast. His dad is really rich. He dies. Tommy won't be able to save his dad's company unless guessed it! He goes on the road with his sidekick, David Spade!

Dumb dumb dumb dumb

I am TIRED of the assumption that stupid=funny. I've seen Farley fall down. I don't need to pay 7.50 to see that. They have SNL reruns on basic cable which I pay for anyways.

Give me my money back. And I'll spork your ass if you produce more caca like this, Paramount. No sporks for you!
