When Chris Farley was found dead of an overdose in Chicago in 1997, there was a nearly universal outpouring of grief.

Farley was at the edge of superstardom for his over-the-top physical comedy. And his death stunned his fans – from those who knew him through Second City to “Saturday Night Live” to a series of successful movies paired with David Spade and other “SNL” alums.

Now, a new documentary, “I am Chris Farley,” talks to his friends and family about the larger-than-life star – a sweet, tragic and funny remembrance for the man who was just 33 when he was found dead in his condo at the John Hancock.

The movie opens in select theaters on July 31.
