Andy has quit his job as a sports journalist and is planning to use the peace and quiet of the country to write the Great American Novel. From the moment the movers’ truck gets lost with their furniture, though, there’s little peace and less quiet. From a manical mailman to a dead body buried in the garden, Andy is distracted by the town and its wacky inhabitants. His effort at a novel is mediocre, at best, and he’s threatened by Elizabeth’s foray into writing when she attempts a children’s book. Can the Farmers survive the townsfolk and each other?
Plot: Sportswriter Andy Farmer moves with his schoolteacher wife Elizabeth to the country in order to write a novel in relative seclusion. Of course, seclusion is the last thing the Farmers find in the small, eccentric town, where disaster awaits them at every turn.

Chevy’s Best Film
I realize that comedy is subjective and things that I think are funny others may not think is too funny. But I am dumbstruck at some of the negative reviews for “Funny Farm.” Far and away this is Chevy’s best film. I think the screenplay is beautifully written with so many small touches of humor hidden within a scene that to list them would take forever. I will agree that the last act takes a bit of a wide turn in reality but it doesn’t stray so far that the film goes off track.
The main story is your typical fish out of water story but what person can’t identify with Chase’s Andy Farmer in one way or another? Of course the film takes it to the extreme and it’s all the funnier for it. And the characters are a biting reminder that not everyone is normal or sane for that matter. The waitress who serves lamb fries without explaining what that really is until it is desperately too late. The sheriff who has to take a cab because he flunked his driver’s test. The mailman who throws the mail to the road because he is drunk by the time he reaches the Farmer’s residence.
And the small touches? How about the dog that runs away from home just after being brought home for the first time? Or the umpire whose strike zone is a bit wide. The odd fate of Claude Musselman? And let’s not forget the phone operator who can tell the sound of two pennies being dropped in a jar but fails to realize it’s not a pay phone Chase is calling from? I laughed hard and often which is something odd for me in any film with Chevy Chase. In all the years with all of his films I can honestly say I have only enjoyed five of them (Foul Play, Vacation, Fletch, Christmas Vacation and this one. That’s right I am not a fan of Caddyshack)and this is his best.
One more small moment sums up the film’s humor for me. Chase is fishing with some men he has just met. One of them men gets a hook stuck in his neck. Instead of trying to pull it out Chase thinks it easier to knock the man out so THEN they can pull the hook out. After punching the man three times in the face one of the other men finally steps in and says “You’re not knocking him out, you’re only beating the p*ss out of him.”
One of Our Favorite Comedies
This is one of the best Chevy Chase comedies there is. The script in intelligent, his co star, Madolyn Smith, is wonderful and she and Chase have fantastic chemistry. The plot involves Andy and Elizabeth Farmer (get it?) who move from the city to small town Vermont so that he can write a book. They plan to start a family, but first, they have to get used to the eccentric people they are surrounded by. I have watched this movie at least a dozen times, and I still laugh out loud. We just bought the DVD (had the VHS but sold it a while back), and we’re having fun introducing this hilarious movie to our kids. They love it too! This is a great, funny, sweet little film that more people should see.
