Mildly amusing comedy about city people 'downshifting' to live in a country town. I actually enjoyed this film, and thought it was much better than I had heard.

Chevy Chase is off to the countryside for some home grown laughs in Funny Farm. Looking for the quiet life, the Farmers move to the small rural town of Redbud, but they soon discover that the town isn't as idyllic as they thought. Co-starring Madolyn Smith, the film features some impressive comedic talent. Chase and Smith prove to have great chemistry together as a city couple that's out of their element. And while a lot of jokes are stereotypical, (making fun of the backward ways of small towns) it works pretty well here. A good old fashioned comedy, Funny Farm is entertaining and fun.

It does have some enjoyable moments in it but outside that its nothing special

Unfortunately, for the most part, "Funny Farm" just isn't really that funny, which is surprising given that it was made when Chevy Chase was at his finest.

the film is actually anything BUT funny. It plays out more like a low-brow remake of the film "Misery". Madolyn Smith Osborne and Chevy are both fine, if not good here, but I don't think I laughed-out-loud once. I remember seeing this at the theater, and the crowd was none-too-happy upon departure.

So unfunny and lifeless it's almost unwatchable. Chevy Chase has never been more set on cruise control.

'Funny Farm' can be funny, and I was laughing out loud quiet a few times, but the absence of slapstick, crude animal jokes and the "American Gothic" marriage scenario between Andy (Chevy Chase) and his wife Elizabeth (Madolyn Smith Osborne)] that I was expecting had me feeling a little underwhelmed in the end.

A pleasent comedy for the whole family. Aldough A far cry from Chevy Chase's best films, its script still manages to make an effective use of some of his comical strengths.

I love this movie. One of Chevy's best!

Nothing funny on this farm. At all.

Funny Farm isn't quite funny, rather depressing when Chevy Chase's life is under scrutiny and promptly finds himself in a road block to misery.
The film struggles on settling for meaning or substance.. no worse then a confused teen facing puberty. Funny farm is purely Famous for Flip flopping it's uncertain direction until it leads back to where it all started. Nowhere.

second half if funny/cute. first half of the film lacks any laughs or entertainment value
