112: "Light Beer. No Glass" - Mr. Destiny (1990)

For George's 35th birthday we watched a movie about Jim Belushi's 35th birthday.  For Belushi, he drank a concoction made by Michael Caine and traveled to an alternate dimension.  For George, we watched Mr. Destiny.  Michael Caine changes Jim Belushi's life by showing him what would have happened had he hit a baseball once.  One of the more perplexing movies we've seen, it's hard to wrap your head around a movie with where our hero cheats on his wife the first day he's in a different timeline.  Enjoy!

111: 'He DOES Hate Mondays' - Garfield (2004)

There once was a man named Joel Cohen who had a name sounding like an Academy Award winning director and screenwriter.  This is the reason Bill Murray gives for starring in Garfield.  It doesn't explain why he appeared in a sequel though or how Bill Murray confused the writer/director of Fargo with a guy who would write a cript about a lasagna loving cat.  This movie was pretty painful to sit through but did give us an evil twin Stephen Tobolowsky and we finally got to see Jon Arbuckle get laid.

110: "Malkovich Made A Dumb Fuck Robot" - Making Mr. Right (1987)

Laurie Metcalf was only a credited SNL cast member for 1 episode but that's a good enough reason to watch the 1987 robot romance starring John Malkovich Making Mr. Right.  The movie asks two major questions, should I give my robot a penis, and more importantly should I give that penis foreskin.  Most of the conversation this week stems from that scientific query.  Enjoy!

109: "Wallace Shawn's Gone Rogue For Poontang" - My Favorite Martian (1999)

Christine Ebersole was a cast member on SNL so we watched My Favorite Martian.  If you can think of a better premise for a podcast, I don't want to hear it.  This movie is wonderfully insane and includes our new favorite poop joke.  What does NASA want with Jerry Garcia's ashes?  Does Christopher Lloyd have a sexual relationship with his clothing?  What are Vin Diesel's opinions on martian spacesuits?  Did Daryl Hannah eat a man?  Why are so many people putting alien gum in their mouths?  And where's all the VHS dubbing in this movie?  These questions as well as an examination of what the hell we're doing with our lives in this week's episode of Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!

108: "What Is Tony Shalhoub" - Paulie (1998)

We're talking Jay Mohr this week, his inexplicable rise to fame and his 1998 family film Paulie where he plays a talking bird and a guy who can make an easy $20 by getting the bird to steal people's ATM codes.  This is a decent family film despite being incredibly saccharin.  How did Buddy Hackett lose out to Jay Mohr?  Why is Bruce Davison so evil?  Why does Tony Shalhoub play so many ethnicities?  How many ALMA awards does Cheech Marin win every year?  These questions and more in this week's Saturday Night Jive. Enjoy!

107: "Welcome Nerds And The Ann Risley Fan Club" - Simon (1980)

Are you ready for some obscurity?  Well we pulled out Ann Risley's name out of the hat and we watched Simon.  If that sentence makes absolutely no sense then you are probably not alone.  Nobody has seen this movie except a couple of nerds who know a lot about Italian operas and shuttle launches.  Alan Arkin stars as a professor who gets brainwashed into thinking he's an alien and some randomness ensues.  Who has time to write IMDB trivia?  How far do you go into your masturbation planning?  Was everyone high all the time when they were writing movies in the 70s?  These questions and more on this week's Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!

106: "A Traditional Transylvanian Jelly Party" - Vampire Dog (2012)

Ever wanted to see a movie about a vampire dog?  Well you should probably watch a movie that isn't Vampire Dog starring SNL alum Norm MacDonald.  This movie has so little to do about a vampire dog and so much to do about winning the battle of the bands, charter schools, cosmetics, science class and mean girls.  A young boy inherits a vampire dog from his dead relative and this dog has all the signs of being a vampire, an affinity for red jelly, running around in the park, talking in a Canadian accent, bad jokes, farts, hypnotism eyes I think...  Anyway, this movie sucks but we have a fun conversation.  What makes a charter school?  What kind of villain is named Arbuckle?  Can janitors legally steal dogs?  How long does it take for jelly to set?  What's with that kid playing the recorder?  All these questions and more in this week's Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!
