Ugh. SNL 5-timer Ben Affleck was the name we picked out of the hat and what better way to honor his impressive comedy skills than to watch the 2003 dud Gigli. This thing is a big fat turd.

Not since Hot To Trot have we been so divided on a film. We're on to the SNL 5 timer's club now and our first hat pick is Melissa McCarthy who had a small but pivotal role in the 2002 film where Christina Ricci falls in love with a mentally challenged teenager. We're talking Pumpkin, a movie that Ben loved and George couldn't stand. A lot of questions are raised this week including the most important one of all. Are we retarded and just nobody's telling us?

It's Harry Shearer week on Saturday Night Jive and did you know he's in two scenes of I'll Do Anything? Did you know that this movie was conceived and shot as musical until test screenings went poorly and all the songs were taken out? Did you even know this movie existed? Did you know this podcast existed? Is this your first podcast ever? Why did you start with this one? You are an extremely interesting person. I'll Do Anything was written and directed by James L. Brooks and stars Nick Nolte, a precocious child, Albert Brooks, Julie Kavner, Tracey Ullman and most importantly two scenes of SNL alum Harry Shearer. Enjoy!

It's Chris Rock week on Saturday Night Jive and we watched his 2003 directorial debut Head Of State a movie about the first black president a concept so ludicrous that it happened in real life only 5 years later. This movie is silly and funny but has some moments that need to be discussed mostly revolving around Tracy Morgan's stolen meat salesman character.

It's Ben Stiller week on Saturday Night Jive and we're watching the 2003 comedy Duplex directed by Danny DeVito and starring Stiller, Drew Barrymore and a riverdancing old lady who likes to take hot sensual baths. This movie's tone is all over the place and features two of the laziest movie jobs. He's a novelist and she's a magazine editor. Can these two crazy mixed up kids get it together long enough to kill their elderly tenant. Enjoy!

We picked Jason Sudeikis out of the hat which can only mean one thing, we're finally watching Movie 43 a sketch film that is extremely hit or miss. Some sketches are terrible while a few are downright brilliant. See Hugh Jackman with balls on his neck. See Richard Gere fuck a robot. See Jason Sudeikis dressed up as a very cheap looking Batman. See Keiran Culkin and Emma Stone talk dirty to each other. See Chris Pratt poop on Anna Faris. See Chloe Grace Moretz gets her first period. See Halle Berry make guacamole with her tits. Or don't see the movie and listen to us talk about it. Enjoy!

We've seen a lot of baffling end credit sequences on Saturday Night Jive. We've seen Kelsey Grammer dance to 'In The Navy', Anthony Michael Hall play drums for 4 minutes, Bill Hader walk off set and let's not forget the 7 new characters that were introduced after Master Of Disguise was over. This movie may have the weirdest one yet. We watched Furry Vengeance from 2010 starring SNL alum Rob Riggle and a big fat Brendan Fraser (who apparently came up with the idea for his pink tracksuit). After 80 some odd minutes of skunk sprays and nut shots the entire cast dances and sings along to a kids bop version of 'Insane In The Membrane' complete with pop culture parodies from 30 years ago. What the huh?
