    Synopsis


    Almost Heroes
    Christopher Guest (Waiting for Guffman) directed this comedy about two hapless explorers -- hard-drinking trapper Bartholomew Hunt (the late Chris Farley in his last major role) and foppish Leslie Edwards (Matthew Perry) -- who lead an ill-fated 1804 expedition through the Pacific Northwest in a hopeless, doomed effort to reach the Pacific Ocean before Lewis and Clark. Others joining their trek are French linguist Guy Fontenot (Eugene Levy), who is unable to decipher dialects of any Native American tribes; Spanish conquistador Hidalgo (Kevin Dunn), who seeks the Fountain of Youth; Fontenot's Indian mistress Shaquinna (Lisa Barbuscia); Bidwell (David Packer), who keeps losing parts of his body; oddball Pratt (Hamilton Camp); and Edwards' manservant Jonah (Bokeem Woodbine). Filmed on location in Northern California and the Big Bear region. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      I am a huge Chris Farley fan and I grew up watching Friends as well with Matthew Perry playing Chandler and they work well together in this movie. I think it is very funny and there are some great historical references to Lewis and Clark in the movie as Farley and Perry play characters competing with them to be the first to see the Pacific Ocean in those days. As a huge fan of Farley, I had to add this DVD to my collection and it was well worth it for the ability to watch the movie anytime I want without having to wait for it to show up on TV on its own. I was also very pleased with the price because I can't argue with paying $4.99 to buy a movie and watch it anytime instead of renting it and paying a few dollars to watch it once.

      Critics despised this film starring Chris Farley and Matthew Perry, but I found it rather funny, and well worth at least one viewing.
