      Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 0/5 Aug 29, 2004 Full Review Rita Kempley Washington Post Farley, a real lightweight compared to such late, great predecessors John Belushi and John Candy, brings none of Belushi's edgy intelligence, nor Candy's gentle pathos to this comic caricature. Jan 22, 2002 Full Review Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times A satisfying and sturdy vehicle for Farley that ought to please his fans, youngsters especially. Feb 14, 2001 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot If watching bruise-inflicting fat jokes is your idea of an evening out, this is 90 minutes for you. Rated: 2/4 Mar 10, 2022 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Pratfall violence, crude humor in silly Farley movie.
