Not reviewed at press time. How quickly can they turn these things out? Didn't Farley and Spade just a few weeks ago break new cinematic wind with their Tommy Boy comedy? I'd think I was imagining things if I hadn't heard Spade joke on his “Spade in America” segment on SNL in December: “I've been in four movies this year. I dare you to name one of them.” Here, Spade plays a gubernatorial campaign worker whose job it is to babysit black-sheep goofball Farley, whose big brother is running for office. Director Spheeris is an old hand at this kind of stuff and, in fact, lately seems to be waging a one-person campaign to turn every TV sketch known to humanity into a feature-length movie (The Little Rascals, The Beverly Hillbillies, Wayne's World). The only thing that surprises me here is that Roger Clinton isn't signed up for a cameo.
