Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A little comedy that succeeds in its modest aim to provide 87 minutes of harmless diversion."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Black Sheep is bleatingly awful as it reteams Chris Farley and David Spade, the poor idiot's Abbott and Costello, in a comedy so desperately inept it makes their previous effort, Tommy Boy, look like a minefield of high wit."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"It's nice to see the two together, practicing their easy screen rapport--and no doubt more so given Farley's untimely passing--but Black Sheep is still a clunker. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"The goofy "Tommy Boy" chemistry seems forced a second time around."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"A transcendent comedy starring one of the top - but most tragically fated - comedy teams of all time."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Works as well as it does because the anarchic, high-energy spirits of Farley and Spheeris lock into each other perfectly."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"They're certainly no Aykroyd and Belushi, or even Myers and Carvey, but Farley and Spade manage to wring humor from a series of juvenile setups and predictable pratfalls."
‑ Richard Leiby, Washington Post
"painfully unfunny"
‑ Pete Croatto,
"the most charming of Farley's screen efforts, but it's too bad he wasn't around long enough to make anyting better"
‑ Eric Melin,
"Makes "Tommy Boy" look like A-grade material"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Yeah, I giggled a couple of times. But I suspect you will giggle more if you are male, age 15-27ish."
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"may not be remembered as a masterful comedy classic, but for the college humor crowd with a relatively safe PG-13 rating, it's a fun diversion"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Though not always in good taste, this tongue-in-cheek parody of the horror genre is sophisticated and clever enough to earn the appreciation of the egghead cult crowd."
‑ Kam Williams,
"Exactly what you expect"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Imagine "Tommy Boy" without all the rapier wit and genius filmmaking technique. I counted one sincere laugh in the full 90 minutes."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
