New York Times:
The most peculiar aspect of the movie is that some of it is played straight.
The movie is an assembly of cliches and obligatory scenes from dozens of other movies, all its better.
It's some indication of the wit involved that Farley is reduced to cracking fat jokes at his own expense.
As a sketch for a Saturday Night Live show, it would have been a tour de force. But as part of this rather unimaginative movie, it's just a bit with a burning desk.
