Everybody remembers Chris Farley, the big loveably guy from Saturday Night Live. Before he was the Beverly Hills Ninja, or Tommy Boy, or even before he was in Black Sheep or Almost Heroes, Chris was on Saturday Night Live and played characters like Matt Foley the energized motivational speaker, Bennet Brauer the gross-out news correspondent, Chippendales' dancer, and many more!

Alternate Versions

On the Comedy Central Version, the music in the Schmitt's Gay commercial which was originally Van Halen's 'Beautiful Girls' has been replaced with a generic compilation of guitar riffs. Also, the conclusion of the Chippendale's skit with Patrick Swayze used to include the theme from 'Dirty Dancing' (I've had the time of my life), but has also been changed to a generic melody.

A Legend in his own time
10 January 2000 | by jetrockSee all my reviews

Chris Farley was a legend. How a person could not find him funny I cannot imagine, truthfully, his skits and movies, even the worse of them(almost heros) are still funny enough to watch, just because of his presence. I miss him every time I say "JackSquat" or "Yapper" or if i hear Loverboy or hear the chippendales mentioned I think of Chris. He was a guy who made everyone laugh and although this movie doesn't have all the great skits, It does have quite a few ones that really show off his comedic skills, My personal favorite is the hidden Camera one, Great facial expressions!! Chris Farley is a guy I will emulate the rest of my life. Chris, Thanks for the time you gave us and thanks for the classic moments!!
