5.0 out of 5 stars Late lamented comic genius at top of his form September 25, 2002
Chris Farley was a comic genius, and this film amply shows why and why he is sorely missed. As the brother of a gubernatorial candidate, he tries to help his brother's campaign, but most every attempt backfires. Sent off to the backwoods to keep him out of the way, his misadventures continue. There he pairs up with another character played by David Spade, and the two make a swell comic duo. They meet up with a carload reminiscent of DELIVERANCE. Their cabin plummets down a landslide after the balance of a balanced rock is upset in a most unlikely way. And they meet up with a crazed survivalist-type neighbor played by Gary Busey. Some of these events will all play out to make for the final resolution when they finally return to civilization. On that return, the movie's peak of zaniness is reached in an episode involving a car with a nitrous oxide booster. This underrated movie is a must for all fans of the farcical comedy genre, and a bittersweet tribute to one who shone briefly but brightly therein.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Legacy Of Chris Farley Lives On March 19, 2005
Chris Farley is a martyr to the comedy world. He was the best drag queen ever, and he was not afraid to fall down. It's a shame that he was succumbed to a drug overdose on December 18, 1997 and was found dead in his apartment. Do yourself a favor and don't do drugs. They f**k you up. Also donate to the Chris Farley Foundation, which is run by Farley's two brothers. Comedy is good for you, drugs aren't.

Anyways, "Black Sheep" is hilarious. Yes, David Spade returns as Steve to babysit clumsy oaf Mike Donnelhy (Farley) while Mike's brother, Al, runs for Washington state governor. The movie really gets rolling when Steve and Mike stay at a lodge in the woods of Washington. When a boulder rolls down and hits the house, making it slide down the grade, everything moves, except the refrigerator, which is held in by the plug, until it is unplugged and slammed against Mike, who then says, "I've got a bowl of chocolate pudding down my pants." Steve responds, "We didn't have any pudding in there."

Another crackup is when Mike calls top bunk, but in the middle of the night, the roof blows off and it hails inside. While Mike is being pelted by hail, Steve laughs and teases him by mimicing, "I call top bunk." Pretty soon, the top bunk lands on Steve.

I don't want to spoil the movie any more than I did, but you need to watch this for yourself. Get the other movies with Chris Farley in them, even Billy Madison and Dirty Work. Those are also crackups, and Norm MacDonald stars in both.

Black Sheep picks up right where Tommy Boy left off with the amazing comic pairing of Chris Farley and David Spade. This is another of the better movies to come from the cast of Saturday Night Live. I really miss seeing Farley and Spade together on film...

Most people I know place this movie second to Tommy Boy, which makes some sense, I suppose, but it has just as many laughs. The scenes with Farley and Spade together in the log cabin are priceless and hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another one of the best comdies I've seen !!!! January 16, 2005
Me and my brother Daniel used to watch this one DAILY. We laughed from beggining to end. I'm telling you, if you like those crazy movies that makes you pee your panties, than I think this one is probably one of the best. Chris Farley: My favorite comedy actor (rest in peace) stars on this one with David Spade. I strongly suggest you watch this flick if you're in the mood for "HAHAHAs".


P.S.- If you loved this one, then I suggest you watch the following ones too:

- "Tommy Boy".- I haven't watched this one and it is with Chris Farley and David Spade. Some people think this movie is Farley's best movie he made. WOW. If "Black Sheep" is one of the best, then imagine how this one would be!!!!! For what I heard: 10/10.

- "Beverly Hills Ninja".- I watched this one and I think it is another one of my all-time favorite's. This one is another movie in which Farley stars in. It will make you laugh you're a** off.- 10/10.

- "Almost Heroes".- Farley's last movie staring with "Friends" star Matthew Perry (I love that T.V. show). Not as funny as the other ones listed above, but also one of my favorite's.- 9/10.

- "Dirty Work".- One of the best. Another crazy comedy staring Norm MacDonald and in "cameo" Chris Farley.- 9/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't compair it to Tommy Boy! May 13, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The reason there are so many bad reviews of this movie is because when people heard that Chris Farley (RIP) and David Spade were making another movie together, they were expecting the comic genius that was Tommy Boy. This is not Tommy Boy! You can't expect Chris and David to do the same thing in every movie or it will very soon become routine. Chris's Mike Donelly character is a little less dimwitted than his Tommy Boy character and David's Steve Dobbs character is a little more dimwitted than his Richard character. But, I will say this, Farley and Spade proove once again that they are the best comedy team since the Three Stooges. Sure this movie has it's flaws, but it's worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fat man falls down September 22, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
If you like Chris Farley falling down, you'll love Black Sheep. Chris Farley falls down like never before in this cinematic achievement...

This movie is really great. I love when Chris is campaigning for his brother outside of the supermarket and does kart-wheels in front of consumers, covered in campaign buttons and pins.

Any age, any time, guarenteed laughs.
