By today's standards I suspect this film would not be well-received - especially by teenagers. No special effects and the actors are just ordinary people - no silicone and steroid here! However, drink a few beers or perhaps a rum and coke or 2 and this movie will send you over the top. I laughed so hard I think I broke a rib or 2. Not the film you can watch 5 times in a row - a little too repetitive. But for occasional silliness this is a very funny film. Chris Farley is excellent counterpoint to M. Perry's serious boring attitude - which is the whole point of the film. The part about the straw women could have been left out - it smacks of some weird deviant behavior. But the rest is funny.

Lewis and Clark as it could have been. Shaquinna (Lisa Barbuscia) with Bartholomew Hunt and Leslie Edwards are challenged to beat Lewis and Clark to the Pacific. They face many challenges form bears, eagles and the mad conquistador, Hidalgo (Kevin Dunn.)

Will they do so?

And at what cost?

This movie consists of many comic scenes and slapstick sketches. The main theme is held together by Lisa, who plays the counter part of Sacagawea. She would not look bad on the golden dollar either.

What a great concept for a flick. Attempting to beat Lewis and Clark on their expedition to the Pacific Ocean. Being this is the 200th anniversary of that expedition made it a little interesting.
There are some very funny scenes indeed but Farly is Farly, yelling, getting angry, fighting and fussing. If you like that you will love this. My favorite scene is where he faces the Eagle at her nest. "Why didn't you tell me you only wanted the shell?" What a great one liner.
Perry is a little stiff as a character and is more of a straight man to Farly's funny man. My only problem with the movie is that there are too many places where it gets slow. Part of it is because you are in the wild and it was a slower time.
There are so many great one liners that seem to have too much time between them. The inuendos are a bit much especially at the beginning. The older Indians are just great. And the scenery, especially of the Tetons and the Snake River are outstanding.
If you want to have a fun night with mostly the guys this is okay for that. My wife did not like it. Anyone who knows and liked Farly for his antics and his in character concept, you will just think this is a hoot.

This was Chris Farley's last film. He ended on a high note. The movie is intentionally stupid--a hilarious GOOF--and directed by Christopher Guest (known for having directed "This is Spinal Tap"). They surely weren't pushing for an Oscar with this one - merely encouraging laughter. This is the story of Bartholomew Hunt (Chris Farley) and Leslie Edwards (Matthew Perry) who, in 1804, follow explorers Lewis and Clark, in hope of being the first men to see the Pacific Ocean. Along their journey they're sure to bring laughter to true fans of Farley's ways, and perhaps to fans of Mel Brooks' as well, as some of the comedy is similar to Brooks' humour in "Robin Hood - Men in Tights".
It is a real shame that this movie isn't available on DVD (yet?), because the presentation of it on VHS is awful. I quote the fine print on the back of the tape's case: "This film has been modified as follows from its original version: It has been formatted to fit your screen". The picture is zoomed in WAY too far, and the result looks distorted. In many shots heads are cropped, we sometimes see only approximately 75% of the face of the person who speaks, and at one point, where a sign reads "Welcome to Snakes Bend", we only see "elcome to Snakes Ben". I was hugely disappointed by the film's presentation, but surprised by the quality of comedy since this is not a much talked about movie.
Zero points to he who decided to crop the movie, and full points to whoever releases is on DVD (with OPTIONAL formatting).

Christopher Guest is a brilliant comedian but I can only guess that directing this movie was a trade-off for getting one of his other projects done. I'm not normally a Chris Farley fan (I thought he was pretty funny, though no comic genius) but the premise of this movie and the fact that Mr. Guest directed and the fact that I was trapped in Niskayuna, NY on business got me to go see it. The whole thing was really kind of sad. Matthew Perry mugging and mincing, Chris Farley doing Chris Farley (again! surprise!), Eugene Levy, always game even in stinkers, trotting out a variation of Dr. Allan Pearl doing Blaine Fabin . . . I didn't laugh once. I was embarrassed that I had seen it. I made an agreement with the friend who saw it with me that we would never speak of it again. To this day we refer to it as "the movie that shall remain nameless". I cannot stress enough how NOT funny this movie is. Perhaps the fact that they aren't releasing it on DVD is an indication of what a waste of time and energy this beast is. Had Chris Farley not passed away (may he rest in peace), I doubt this would have even been released.

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.
