Imagine "Tommy Boy" without all the rapier wit and genius filmmaking technique. I counted one sincere laugh in the full 90 minutes.

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

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.

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]

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

Black Sheep is an appropriately titled misfire, a des-perate slapstick comedy that falls flat at nearly every turn.

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

Spade plays the straight man, Farley plays the dufus, physical stunts abound and there isn't one shred of slightly intellectual wit.
