Black Sheep

Lists: Slapstick comedy

Brief Synopsis: "When dignified Albert Donnelly runs for Governor, his team moves to keep his slow-witted and klutzy younger brother, Mike, out of the eye of the media. To baby-sit Mike, the campaign assigns sarcastic Steve, who gets the experience of a lifetime when he tries to take Mike out of town during the election."

Bryan Lienesch80 - Look, 'Black Sheep' isn't exactly going to be honored by the American Film Institute as a cinematic achievement. But given the option between watching this or some shallow candidate's stump speech on Election Day, I gleefully and enthusiastically choose the former.
