Good-natured adventure and definitely silly, it makes you wish we still had Chris Farley around to entertain us.
Make some popcorn, settle in for a good time, and be ready to smile with Almost Heroes.
"When the history books are written, Lewis and Clark will be nothing but a footnote on a footnote and I [Edwards]sir will be the....NOTE."
The chemistry that Hunt and Edwards share in this movie is tremendous, something that makes this movie as funny as can be. With the help of some no so bright helpers, Edwards and Hunt conquer the Pacific. With some misfortunes along the way that make this movie the best, I especially like the "I need the egg of an eagle" scene, hilarious, and the Indian scene where the "NOT RIGHT IN THE HEAD" indian keeps slapping Hunt (Farley) no matter if it is he or Edwards that slaps the Indian.
So get out your wallet use the force of the credit card to order this comedy of a lifetime, it is worth the ride. TRUST ME
"White water in the morning." [from the movie]
If you love those epic journy movies with a sprinkle of laughter (this one has the whole can) then you will love this one as much as any other or possibly more. Buy this video tape, or wait for the DVD to come out soon (I hope). But watch it right....now.

This is one of the greatest movies of all time. Before Perry got fat and old, and after Farley went off the deep end. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Thomas Roman
I'm not sure why everyone hates this movie. It's not meant to be a in-your-face, side-splitting, laugh riot, full of foul language, action, and crude humor, its humor is cute,... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amber
