Almost Heroes is a 1998 comedy film starring Chris Farley and Matthew Perry and directed by Christopher Guest. It is narrated by Harry Shearer, who is best known for voicing characters such as Ned Flanders on The Simpsons and as a member of Spinal Tap.

The film was Farley's last major film role and was released five months after his death; he later had a cameo in the Norm Macdonald comedy Dirty Work, which was released later in the year.


In 1804, Lewis & Clark have set out to discover America's western frontier. Unbeknownst to them, another expedition has been commissioned and is led by the stuffily aristocratic Leslie Edwards (Matthew Perry). Knowing he needs a man familiar with the territory to lead the way, Leslie hires Bartholomew Hunt (Chris Farley), a slovenly tracker, along with a rag tag crew of misfits, including Guy Fontenot (Eugene Levy), an interpreter who doesn't speak any other languages.Heading off toward the Pacific Oceanmarker, they encounter many obstacles such as wild bears, Native tribes, and a group of Spanishmarker conquistadors led by Hidalgo (Kevin Dunn), as they try to beat the other expedition team to the west coast.

The troupe make it at last when Bartholomew is dragged into the ocean by a great eagle. We are told in the narration, this is not known by many, and Lewis and Clark were eventually credited with the discovery.
