Chris Farley's last laugh is everything grieving fans could have hoped for: big, dumb, hilarious comedy. Try as you may to look down your nose at Farley's hot-headed, flubbering tirades, his excessive buffoonery will have you double over in spite of yourself. Guest gives Farley and Perry plenty to work with in this perverse slapstick tale about two idiotic 19th-century explorers who beat Lewis and Clark in the race to reach the Pacific.
