As the new documentary I Am Chris Farley eloquently illustrates, the late comedian’s legacy will always be tethered to television, and rightfully so — sketches like “The Chris Farley Show” and “Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker” live in the annals of SNL history and will keep Farley on late night’s Mount Rushmore.
As the new documentary I Am Chris Farley (out July 31) illustrates, the late comedian’s legacy will remain tethered to SNL. But Farley’s work on the big screen has always deserved more credit. The film—skillfully helmed by Brent Hodge and Derik Murray and featuring talking-head testimonials from family members, friends, and costars such as Mike Myers and Bob Odenkirk—heralds Tommy Boy as definitive and notes how winning a romantic lead Farley is in Coneheads.
