I like most of Chevy Chase's movies. The faces that he makes are hilarious and you can't help but laugh.

As in the "Vacation" series, we dream the beautiful and impossible American dream along with protagonist Chevy Chase. Here we witness Chevy's attainment of the "perfect" early retirement to the idyllic life of the country squire. In typical Chevy Chase style, he remains cheerful despite disaster after disaster until it seems his dream is dead. Chevy must salvage that which is truly worth saving from his life and carry on. The beautiful scenery of Vermont and the beautiful Madolyn Smith make this extremely funny movie extremely watchable as well.

"This movie was made when Chevy Chase was doing some of his best work. Unfortunately this was not the best example of it. It was entertaining and had some funny moments, but there are better movies that showcase his comedic genius such as Fletch.

I have added this to my Christmas collection as the scenes they did for the holidays were a scream! With all the amazing supporting characters, I expected more from the film than I got.
Just a Pleasure to Watch

"Let me say that I'm not a big Chevy Chase fan - but I like this movie. The story of a couple, Andy and Elizabeth Farmer, who move from the daily grind of New York to the picturesque country setting of Rosebud, only to find their scenic utopia populated by a pack of small town lunatics. There are some truly funny moments: the cackling, alcoholic mailman who never stops; the bid to sell the house (cue the deer); the casket in the garden... it all works and provides for a good movie from beginning to end."
Funny Farm A Great Laugh Anytime

"Funny Farm is...well.. funny! I remember when it came out in the theatres it got about 2 or 3 stars. However if you like romantic comedy set in the backwoods this film will have your sides aching from laughter. The premise is rather simple. A big town guy turns to a small town in search of a better life. The only problem is that everything goes wrong. The movers cant find the house. No one will give directions. There are a pair of sign stealers that appear all throughout the movie. Of course our heroine Andy needs to see that sign that they just took (Look! No bullet holes!) There is a scene in a diner and a Sheriff that has you wondering about small town law enforcement. The whole thing ends up at Christmas with beautiful decorations and even more hilarity as our stars come back to Earth. Chevy and Madeline play off one another well in this funny movie. Just when you think things are straightening out for the couple, something else falls apart. Its another movie that is no Oscar winner but its one I watch over and over. I couldnt have a collection of movies without Funny Farm. Dont miss it."
