CHAPTER 4 – Whether it was a cash grab or a savvy filmmaking challenge, Guest follows up the high highs of GUFFMAN with the stinking open pastures of ALMOST HEROES. With only his right hand man Levy journeying over to the land of mainstream 90s comedy with him, Guest is but a director for a Chris Farley + Matthew Perry vehicle parodying the expedition of Lewis and Clark to the Pacific Ocean. Will Guest’s history with sketch comedy raise the level of the broad, potty humor of Farley in what turns out to be his final film role? Or is this simply a classic case of taking that Hollywood money and running to your next indie darling? The Christopher Guest List is hosted by Vic Shuttee (@VicShuttee) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType).
