Reviews about I Am Chris Farley

A bittersweet salute, appraisal and explanation of the early-nineties Saturday Night Live troupe mainstay.

It serves merely to remind us of lightning that struck briefly and memorably in the comedy world, and then was gone.

Fans of Farley will appreciate the effort although more discriminating moviegoers might wish for a little less hagiography and a little more depth.

I kept thinking what Farley would have thought of it. He probably would have been embarrassed and a bit shy about the whole thing. But he would have loved the attention. He would have smiled and laughed. And that's all that really matters.

"I Am Chris Farley" sticks to slickly edited, bite-sized anecdotes about an attention-starved Midwestern goofball unprepared for stardom, accompanied by storybook music that accentuates Farley's childlike nature over his darker impulses.

The story of dependence and excess is sadly familiar - and as with most of its material, "I Am Chris Farley" doesn't find a fresh way to tell it.

Hodge & Murray paint a comprehensive portrait of Farley as a devout Catholic and a devoted friend and brother.

We're left wondering a lot of things, as I Am Chris Farley scratches the surface of Farley's life and death, but never bothers to dig any deeper.

It's a heartwarming but ultimately heartbreaking film that celebrates the life of a unique comic genius without ever sidestepping the personal problems that pushed him ever deeper into the lifestyle excesses that led to his death in 1997, at age 33.

These friendly voices -- and many laugh-out-loud (if too frequently repeated) clips -- aren't exactly helped by a constant drone of spooky piano music

An entertaining yet pervasively superficial documentary...

The evolution of bellowing motivational speaker Matt Foley is charted in fascinating detail thanks to interviews with Bob Odenkirk.
