Storyline

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!

Definitely worth the investment
1 August 2006 | by ajennaroSee all my reviews

I have at one point owned both versions of the Best of Chris Farley: the 1998 version and the 2003 version. I found the 2003 version to be much better. Not only do you have all of the sketches from the 198 version, including Matt Foley, Bennet Brauer and Bill Swartzkey's Superfans, but you also have lesser known sketches and tons of special features. The special features include: outtakes, deleted scenes, Chris on Conan and Leno and a tribute to Chris. The latter is quite emotional and makes you realize how much we've lost. If you enjoyed Chris on SNL, as I did, or found out about him later, I guarantee that you will like this collection.
