* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Apparently all that was needed to cure Edward's sickness was the shell of an eagle egg. It would have been nice to have told that to Hunt before he kept eating the eggs and having to go back for another. (And being savaged by an eagle each time).

This 1998 film took a lighter look at the concept of exploration in the early 1800's. Leslie Edwards (Matthew Perry) seeks to trek West, from the United States territory to the Pacific. Unfotunately, he finds himself in a race against the more famous Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and lacking much in the way of the crew. Enter Bartholomew Hunt, a hefty, crass woodsman with a taste for booze. Accompanied by Hunt's hapless cohorts, a frenchmen and his Indian slave, the band sets out to beat the more famous Lewis and Clark at their own game.

This was Chris Farley's last movie before his premature death. His true final movie, ''DirtyWork'', was released after it (though Farley only had a bit part in Dirty Work, while he was a co-star for this film).

* {{Envy}}: When Hidalgo tells the captured companions that he's going to cut Shaquinna's hair off and asks them why, Higgins answers is because he's jealous of her hair being more beautiful than his. After we find out that Hidalgo is bald and was only wearing a wig, Higgins may be right.
