What is your favorite Chris Farley Film?

Gotta go with Tommy Boy. It is a real shame that he died so soon. We missed a lot more great slapstick comedies!

It is now. Still trying to get the hang of setting up a poll.

Tommy Boy

If anyone votes Almost Heroes, they should be banned

Tommy Boy, no question about it.

Will anybody actually pick Almost Heroes? I'm a huge Chris Farley fan but that was just horrible.

We should do a best Chris Farley non-staring role becasue he had so many great parts in other movies like Coneheads, Dirty Work, Airheads, Billy Madison. Actually that may be all the supporting roles besides the Waynes World Flicks. shame he had to die and screw Chevy Chase for what he had to say about Farley in that new book.

Coneheads.


Just kidding. It's Tommy Boy in a walk. Unless you count his cameos in Wayne's World or Billy Madison.

Shrek

(Farley actually recorded much of his dialogue for the film, but was replaced by Mike Myers after his death)

Tommy Boy is a very funny movie. The other three are terrible.

Tommy Boy. Black Sheep is the only other one on that list I can even watch anymore, but it's not even close.

of his small roles, I gotta go with Airheads. That whole part where he rips off the nipple ring is hilarious.

I really enjoy Black Sheep (almost like a Tommy Boy sequel in its own way), but I'll go with Tommy Boy.

Tommy Boy is his best movie, IMO, and suprisingly has aged really well, as Adam Sandlers movies have not.

This poll has reminded me that I like Almost Heroes. I also like him in the "heads" movies.

Loved Farley, but the only movie I can watch by him is Tommy Boy...
