Movie Reviews

Really funny!
Lee | Naples, Fl USA | 07/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes you see a movie and months later you have a good laugh just recalling a scene. This is one of those movies.

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."
Best Chris Farly film ever made!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Julie Swanson | Boise, Idaho, USA | 05/02/2002

"I'll tell you guys and gals what, if you find Chris Farly even remotely funny (who doesn't) then you will love this movie. I will tell you one thing about it - watch it more than once. Once you begin to watch it 10+ times the smallest things become so funny. Not only is Chris Farly funny as hell but the rest of the cast is what makes the movie. There is a shy scrub named Bidwell, a funny old man named Jackson, a funny fat man named Higgins, and the best of all the scrubby dude named Heronumus Pratt, he is the best. Watch the scene where Matthew Perry is watching the girl take a bath in the lake and when Chris Farly comes up. He starts joking about Matthew Perry watching her alone and polishing the puter etc. but watch Matthew Perry's face, he cannot keep a straight face, all he does is laugh at Chris Farly for real. It is one of the most hilarious scenes in any movie. Like I said earlier its one of those movies that you should watch 5-6 times and then you will be addicted to it. This movie does not follow the same line of humor as Tommy Boy or Black Sheep. It has its own type of comedy and it is the best. I would classify this movie as my number ONE comedy of all time. Buy it and decide for yourself."
Excellent Chris Farley Movie
Leonard Pannucci | West Orange, NJ USA | 04/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent movie. You must have a sence of humor, or you will hate this movie. I laugh almost the entire movie. The people are so dirty and rotten, but they have filthy rich names like Bidwell, Hunt, Higgins, Edwards (who is rich in the movie) and Pratt. Chris Farley faces from the eagle eggs are hilarious, every time he yells I laugh forever, he is just funny. I watch the movie almost every week, I laugh at something different every time. Those other major movie critics do not no what is funny or not, they probably dont have a sence of humor. You have to have a certain sence of humor so just rent it first to see if you like it. I seem to watch it at like 1 o'clock in the morning, almost every time. So try it then to see if you like. Matthew Perry is funny in the beginning but kind of died toward the end, but the other actors made up for it. And the scenery of ancient America is awesome. I wish we still had all that land with very few cities, but humans took over. Anyway, the movie was terrific, no matter what anyone says, and watch it more than once to get all the jokes and crude humor."
