may not be remembered as a masterful comedy classic, but for the college humor crowd with a relatively safe PG-13 rating, it's a fun diversion

It's nice to see the two together, practicing their easy screen rapport--and no doubt more so given Farley's untimely passing--but Black Sheep is still a clunker. [Blu-ray]

painfully unfunny

Though not always in good taste, this tongue-in-cheek parody of the horror genre is sophisticated and clever enough to earn the appreciation of the egghead cult crowd.

The goofy "Tommy Boy" chemistry seems forced a second time around.

the most charming of Farley's screen efforts, but it's too bad he wasn't around long enough to make anyting better

Exactly what you expect

A transcendent comedy starring one of the top - but most tragically fated - comedy teams of all time.
| Original Score: 4/5

Makes "Tommy Boy" look like A-grade material

Imagine "Tommy Boy" without all the rapier wit and genius filmmaking technique. I counted one sincere laugh in the full 90 minutes.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

A little comedy that succeeds in its modest aim to provide 87 minutes of harmless diversion.

The movie itself succeeds in setting up situations ready for yucks; the movie's key problem is its intended humor fails to register on the audience's yucks ballot.

Works as well as it does because the anarchic, high-energy spirits of Farley and Spheeris lock into each other perfectly.

They're certainly no Aykroyd and Belushi, or even Myers and Carvey, but Farley and Spade manage to wring humor from a series of juvenile setups and predictable pratfalls.

[Farley] is funny in the great loser buffoon tradition of guys who look like they slept through shop class but graduated from the two year tech course anyway.

It is one long, drawn out exercise in pain.

Black Sheep is an appropriately titled misfire, a des-perate slapstick comedy that falls flat at nearly every turn.
January 1, 2000
Black Sheep is bleatingly awful as it reteams Chris Farley and David Spade, the poor idiot's Abbott and Costello, in a comedy so desperately inept it makes their previous effort, Tommy Boy, look like a minefield of high wit.

Yeah, I giggled a couple of times. But I suspect you will giggle more if you are male, age 15-27ish.
