Black Sheep ★½ 1996 (PG-13)

Isn't there a five-day waiting period for remakes? The previously viewed copies of “Tommy Boy” hadn't even hit the sale bin before Spade and Farley went in search of more property to destroy. The twist here? Spade is assigned to keep the oafish brother (not son) of a gubernatorial candidate (not auto parts dealer) out of trouble until after the election (not so he can save the family business). In an effort to provide humor, plot points, and character development, Farley falls out of, off of or onto every prop in sight while Spade smirks. 87m/ C VHS, DVD . Chris Farley, David Spade, Tim Matheson, Christine Ebersole, Gary Busey, Grant Heslov, Timothy Carhart, Bruce McGill, Fred Wolf; D: Penelope Spheeris; W: Fred Wolf; C: Daryn Okada; M: William Ross.
