I believe that Chris Farley has overstayed his welcome a bit. I'll admit, I liked the stuff he used to do on Saturday Night Live. And Tommy Boy was a great showcase for Farley's talents. But this movie is basically a rehash of the latter film, and it only shows how Farley's antics are becoming stupefying dull. He teams up again with David Spade (though not as successfully as in Tommy Boy), in this story of how a big, loud-but-lovable lug is screwing up his brother's chances of becoming the next Governor of Washington. Spade is basically given the task of keeping Farley out of trouble, which he of course fails to do.

Farley's antics were fine the first time around, but like the recent work of Jim Carrey, his stuff is becoming obnoxious. The usual assortment of gross sight gags are mostly mean-spirited and get old real quick. And what's up with Spade?! Whereas he usually has wonderful sarcastic quips to go along with Farley's slapstick, here he's just standing around, looking like he wishes to be anywhere but in another Chris Farley movie. What makes this so bad is the fact that it drags out scenes that really do not need to be dragged out any further. The result is that the audience is either bored stiff or they shrink back in their seats. This is mostly due to the embarrassing fact that they shelled out six bucks to see this turkey.
