TV stars Matthew Perry ("Friends") and Chris Farley ("Saturday Night Live," "Black Sheep") star in this outrageous "trail" comedy set in the 1800s that follows the exploits of American pioneers Edwards & Hunt as they lead a motley band of misfits into the wild unchartered countryside. Misadventures abound as they bravely attempt to beat out Lewis & Clark in discovering the West. Co-starring Eugene Levy ("Father of the Bride," "Splash"). From director Christopher Guest ("The Big Picture").

    This is one of the best Chris Farley movies I've seen. Although, there's a scene where sacajewea is naked, so viewer discretion is advised.
  • Did the rotten tomatoes guys even watch it

    RIP Chris Farley an incredible actor who made funny movies like this.
  • Great movie

    By Brother Phillip the philosopher
    This is a funny flick that will always be on my list. I can remember laughing hysterically when Chris had to get the egg - so much so, in fact, I thought I was going to pass out. The most remarkable thing about it, I suppose, is that it is not obsessively vulgar like the majority of comedies that are out now.

    By Krazy K Photoman
    Everytime I hear someone talk about this movie, it takes all the power within me not to just run up to them and yell at the top of my lungs: "DAMN DIRTY BIRD!!!" haha! then I lose all control and I perform the entire act !!!!!!!! This movie was one Chris Farley's best and it definitely ment he went out with a bang!
  • Seriously, though...

    This is one of the stupidest, funniest movies I've ever seen. I didn't realize Christopher Guest was the director until after I'd seen it! If you like his humor, you'll like it... and yet it's got the feel of a "Chris Farley movie" too. An odd combination, to be sure, but they pull it off!
