After five years on SNL, Chris Farley and David Spade took their partnership to the big screen, and, in the process, proved that the key to any successful buddy comedy is the camaraderie of its co-stars. The friendship between the two is apparent throughout this 1995 cult classic, which follows a lunk-headed lump (guess who?) and a sycophantic suit on a cross-country sales trip, and it probably explains why each lets the other shine: Farley provides the physical comedy, Spade delivers the snarky one-liners, and Holy Schnikes, is this film better because of their friendly competition.—JAMES MONTGOMERY
