Storyline

Everybody remembers Chris Farley, the big loveably guy from Saturday Night Live. Before he was the Beverly Hills Ninja, or Tommy Boy, or even before he was in Black Sheep or Almost Heroes, Chris was on Saturday Night Live and played characters like Matt Foley the energized motivational speaker, Bennet Brauer the gross-out news correspondent, Chippendales' dancer, and many more!

Alternate Versions

On the Comedy Central Version, the music in the Schmitt's Gay commercial which was originally Van Halen's 'Beautiful Girls' has been replaced with a generic compilation of guitar riffs. Also, the conclusion of the Chippendale's skit with Patrick Swayze used to include the theme from 'Dirty Dancing' (I've had the time of my life), but has also been changed to a generic melody.

Before Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, there was Saturday Night Live with Chris Farley, that will forever remain the funniest stuff he's ever done
24 July 2005 | by OriginalMovieBuff21See all my reviews

Chris Farley is one of my favorite comedians and to me will forever be missed as the big, clumsy, and drop dead hilarious comedian to ever live. Saturday Night Live shows the funniest skits I have ever seen of his. The Japanese show, "Da Bears," The coffee fight scene, The Herlihy boy, Schmitts Gay, The Chris Farley Show, Matt Foley, Chippendales dance scene, The El Nino weather scene, and more. Before Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, there was Saturday Night Live with Chris Farley, that will forever remain the funniest stuff he's ever done. I highly recommend you seeing The Best of Chris Farley because you will die laughing at his skits. He represents comedy!

Hedeen's Outlook: 10/10 **** A+
