He's gone-but he'll never be forgotten. The best of Chris Farley's wildly funny SNL performances are here, including motivational speaker Matt Foley, an aspiring Chippendales dancer, the bashful host of The Chris Farley Show ( m 'member?") and more. Color/63 min/NR/fullscreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Dad, I Wish you could just shut your big YAPPER!!" March 1, 2005
So sad. So much talent, so little left for us to cherish, but this IS IT. This is the treasure trove that Chris Farley left us before he passed. The Matt Foley: Motivational Speaker sketch is without a doubt the funniest piece of sketch that I have EVER seen on SNL. Just look at David Spade and Christina Applegate's faces, they cannot stop laughing, it's just that funny. This DVD version does elimate some classic skits such as The Herlihy Boy and Schmitts Gay but the remainder and the extras make this worth the price of purchase. Among the best are Chippendales Dancer, Da Bears ("I'M NOKING...NOKING!!!), Bennett Brauer's Weekend Update commentary ("maybe the network would be happier with someone who doesn't EAT THEIR OWN DANDRUFF or FRIGHTEN SMALL CHILDREN"), Grandma Sketch w/Sandler & Married Old Couple sketch with Sandler and of course, The Chris Farley Show. The bonus features on this DVD are great too, there are 2 talk show performances, one with Conan O'Brien and one with Jay Leno. I'm convinced that Farley suffered from anxiety/panic disorder because if you watch these interviews you can see that he is so uncomfortable (sweating and clenching his fists) during these interviews. I truly believe if he would have gotten some professional help for his anxiety instead of self medicating he might still be with us today. But anyway, this is some of the funniest sketch comedy ever created and is an absolute must-own for even a casual fan. Highest Recommendation...R.I.P Chris Farley.

P.S. "I Don't give a damn, cause i'm movin' in...I'm sick and tired of livin' IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!!!!!!!!!!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent skits, but they took out a couple things August 31, 2004
By D. Hill
This is a great DVD - very funny. If you like SNL, you will probably like this DVD. I had only seen the original 2000 release (by the exact same name as this one) of this DVD before buying this new 2003 release. The 2000 release was made by Vidmark/Trimark (ASIN: 157362862X @ instead of from Lions Gate Home Entertainment. This version is edited a little from the original, so the actual tribute is probably about a couple minutes shorter than the original release. However, the one upgrade is more extras (special features). There are two hilarious clips of late show appearances that are not on the original release. Then there is a short outtakes reel which is decent, a deleted skit which isn't very good, and some photos to look at. So it depends on which you would rather have.

Here are the cons:

I'm not sure exactly how much was left out on this new release but I do know that the "Herlihy Boy: House Sitting Service" skit with Adam Sandler was cut out (which is my favorite SNL skit of all time). Another great segment that was left out was the "Little Women"-esque sequence where they fall through the ice and start cursing and make a pact with the devil. Yet another skit that was taken out was the "Shmitt's Gay Beer" skit, which doesn't bother me because I did not like it anyways (but some people like it). One final segment that was left out was the "in memoriam" introduction by Tim Meadows at the beginning of the previous release.

Now for the pros:

Excellent skits include Matt Foley's Motivational Speaker "Go For It" skit, "Hidden Camera Commercials," the "Chris Farley Show" with Paul McCartney (and clips of 2 more), & the Japanese Game Show, which are four of my favorite SNL skits ever (after the "Herlihy Boy" skit of course).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun With Shorter Running Time March 29, 2006
I have the original VHS release of this title. It was a lot of fun and always made me laugh. Then I bought this DVD release, which I later found out is mysteriously missing seven minutes worth of footage. Some of my favorite scenes are cut. Now I'll have to go back and buy the previous DVD release. Why they can't release it completely the second time around is beyond me. But what's here is great, so you might want to buy it anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Forgotten. July 16, 2007
I don't hear too many people talk about Farley anymore and I think that is rather sad as he was a gifted performer. All of his best shticks are recorded in this DVD but it could easily have been two hours long. One hour does not do justice to the guy in my opinion. Yes, a lot of the great stuff is here such as his Matt Foley character, Bennett Brauer, and the Chippendales skit he had with Swayze. It's enough to heighten your appetite for Farley but not enough to fill you. His death was truly a shame. I think comparisons to Belushi are appropriate, but Farley never had the range or amazing talent of John. Nevertheless, we're worse off without the large fellow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live Bennet Brauer! August 9, 2005
A Kid's Review
This is the only SNL DVD I currently own. Good way to kick off the collection, huh? I saw this stuff, and it was AWSOME!! Farley really stood out in the cast, and that's no easy feat( considering that he was amongst the likes of Phil Hartmen, Adam Sandler, just to name a few). This is trully the essience of Farley. I mean, the classics are all here: Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker; Overweight Chippendales Dancer; Bennet Brauer, Bill Swersky's Superfans,etc. This is the real deal here. Farley was always my favorite. He really emphizied on the physical aspect of Physical Comedy. Get it, now! R.I.P, you were the man!
