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

This is the type of film that if you watch it, it becomes less and less funnier with every viewing. This is essential a rehash of ideas previously written in Farley's other comedy, Tommy Boy. Tommy was a superior film to this, but not by much. Still despite all the flaws, Chris Farley is a better comedian than Will Ferrell. But this is not Farley best work. Tommy Boy is his funniest. Unfortunately, Farley did have a chance to really make a laugh out loud comedy, his career was tragically cut short. But for what it's worth this was his lowest point as an actor. He make me laugh more than Will Ferrell. Black Sheep, is an average comedy with a few laughs, but nothing great or memorable to be found here.

This and Tommy Boy are my favorite Chris Farley movies. He was halarious and one of the most tallented people out there who knew how to bring the laughs. Wish he was still here making more movies like these. Love this movie. Great with a bunch of laughs just like all his work.

Comedy lost a future great one in Chris Farley. He had such energy and mastered physical comedy. The film itself is, along with Tommy Boy, one of his best.
