It's a lot of Chris Farley yelling and slapstick humor that may have passed in the silent era, but lacks any wit whatsoever, Black Sheep is on par with the undeniably similar Tommy Boy which is a very, very low par.
It's not as hilarious as "Tommy Boy," but Chis Farley and David Spade's second go-around as a comedic team is still entertaining enough with a few funny scenes making "Black Sheep" worth the short watch.
Jesus this is a dire movie. It contains no comedy. Chris Farley tears around a sketchy plot bellowing and flailing his arms. It seems that this in itself is supposed to be funny ... no need to write any jokes as long as Farley yells enough. This is wrong. Spade is the straight man. So much of a straight man, they neglected to give him anything to do besides stand and look quizzical. There are two cast members from "Animal House" in this movie. This is very sad.
