Paramount does things right with the majority of this disc and I think fans will certainly be pleased. With the exception of a few small and almost totally unnoticable marks, this is a superb anamorphic transfer. Images are quite clear and nicely defined throughout.

Although not too terribly much is going on in terms of sound, the music has a suprising amount of energy and life to it and it certainly sounds great.

Where the disc falls flat is that it only includes the trailer. Bummer. Still, audio and video are quite nice.

Thanks a lot, I was looking for a review of this! Too bad there wasn't a commentary track with Farley and Spade.

Now all I need is Black Sheep and I'll be happy.

Regards to all,
Nosebleed

How does Beverly Hills Ninja compare to this Farley movie?

I've never seen BHN, and I thinking about getting it cus I love Chris Farley so much!

Dino, I too am a huge Farley fan, however for me BHN is horrible. There are like a few laughs but, the movie is a waste anyone's time. Where Tommy Boy and Black Sheep had a story and characters that you can follow, BHN has nothing going for it other then Farley's gags. If you're a fan it's worth a view since his filmography is sadly short, but if you want my opinion it's not worth the rental price.

mcifani,
Are you high? BHN the funniest movie ever?!?!?!?! Tommy Boy is by far Farley's best. Stop writing nonsense, like your comment on the Matrix not being 16x9 enhanced.

I looked it up to make absolutely certain, FATASIC is *NOT* a word.

mcifani,

Well, I've just lost all respect by your not being able to see the virtues of The Matrix, which truly is a GREAT movie.
