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?

What's this? A movie we both enjoyed? Hard to believe but it was Nora Dunn who brought us our first decent movie in quite some time. Well, to be fair, she's only in two scenes and she gets overshadowed by Camryn Manheim's tattooed titties, but she doesn't do anything to harm What Planet Are You From? written by and starring Garry Shandling as an alien trying to impregnate a woman on Earth. The makers of this movie seem to have given at least some shit about the product they put on film, which is very refreshing after the past few weeks of abysmal cinema. We talk about SNL a little this week too and George's obsession with solving the Pat Stevens puzzle, we also pitch our own alien movie, question Garry Shandling's handsomeness and just generally praise the makers of this funny and human film. Enjoy!

It's Amy Poehler week on Saturday Night Jive and we're talking about the 2004 film Envy starring Ben Stiller as a guy who gets jealous when his best friend, Jack Black, invents a spray that makes poop disappear. Frequent Saturday Night Jive offender Barry Levinson directed this literal turd where Christopher Walken seems to be doing an impression of Christopher Walken. We never get to find out where the poo goes but we do get to spend some time with the fascinating Bosco, who seems to live in the woods just to carry out errands for Walken. This movie stinks. Enjoy!

It's Randy Quaid week on Saturday Night Jive and we unearthed a kids film from 1999 called P.U.N.K.S. starring Quaid as a George McFly-esque dad who needs to be saved by his kid when his evil boss played by Henry Winkler wants to sell super human suits to terrorists. It's pretty terrible but does have a certain kid power charm to it. If you are an 8 year old boy you would probably love this movie, everyone else can probably skip it. How old is too old for Henry Winkler to play The Fonz? What constitutes 'Stranger Danger'? Who puts cake on their bookshelf? What was Hitler's answering machine message like? Why can't bartenders see through a ZZ Top disguise? These questions and more on this week's episode of Saturday Night Jive. Enjoy!
