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.
The film Black Sheep was indeed rushed and appropriated because of the more masterful and successful Tommy Boy. Siskel said he walked out of the theater lol. But when you get down to it the film is just a normal slapstick comedy and it includes Farley, one of the best at his profession. He is a warm presence for me. And sometimes that is enough. Many I guess disagree, and I am not sure for what reason. For one thing I saw Siskel and his brethren rate many TERRIBLE films much higher than this, and many great films along the same lines. I don't really trust critics and never have because my own critical thinking skills are very high. If you can't laugh at any of this I wouldn't even want to know you for one. How can you be so lame as to not even admit this is funny in parts?
What I cannot agree with I guess is that this film is bad. If this film is bad then so are a whole host of other comedies highly ranked in the canon. What and the heck divides this from films like Bridesmaids? Oh, I forgot the feminist movement is in full swing and it's okay as long as it's really popular to like. But not Farley. Oh man, what did these people think of when A&C and Three Stooges were on air? Apparently that was high-brow comedy of the first order LOL.Read more ›
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.
Because this is the type of humor I enjoyed back in the 90s and even through today, this movie holds a special appeal to me. Not everyone is going to like this type of movie as it is filled with Chris Farley yelling a lot and David Spade dealing with one blunder after another from Farley's character. The reason I give this 5 stars is simply because, for a comedy at its time, it stands out and is very easily remembered.
If you are looking for a light-hearted comedy with plenty of unfortunate situations, this would be a movie that should show up on that list. It will entertain you over the years as it has done for me and the type of comedy on display does not lose its humor as the years pass by.
