Comedy about the prospective Washington State Governor Al Donnelly whose only stumbling block on the road to power is his embarrassing younger brother Mike. To keep him out of mischief, Al forces one of his aides, Steve Dodds to keep an eye on him during the election. However, this is easier said than done...Written by

Bruce McGill and Tim Matheson also starred in Animal House, making them the only actors to star with Chris Farley and his idol John Belushi. See more »
When Mike is being dragged behind a car by his tie in the grocery store parking lot, the harness that he's wearing is visible in close ups. See more »
[Steve and Mike are high on nitrous oxide and have been pulled over]
Do you have any idea how fast you were going back there?
Sixty? Sixty five tops?
Seven miles an hour.
And normally, when I stop people, they pull on the shoulder!
[Mike is shown to have stopped and pulled over onto the center line]

Not enough character development on Spade's character; would have wanted to know more about why he's doing it. Not much info on his relationship with Al Donnelly; e.g.: how good was he at his job, and why Donnelly was so quick to let him have the job with Mike. Lack of time, I guess, but I would have wanted to know more.
Farley was definitely the star of the movie, which meant I had to rewind to catch the funnier moments with Spade, if the two were in the same shot. Couldn't help but think Farley wasn't all that fat in this movie, for all the fat jokes.
Error alert: almost immediately after Mike falls on Steve in the bunk bed scene, the bed is magically in one piece.
