36: "Big Floppy Turtle Necks" - Chris Pratt/Ariana Grande

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we talk about the first episode of Season 40 featuring host Chris Pratt, blending into the scenery in an episode that is somehow both bland and vehemently annoying. Is SNL suffering from Weird Al Syndrome? Should it be cancelled after all these years? How bad can my impression of Harrison Ford possibly be? Find out!

35: "Rape The Cat" - My Giant

This week we tackle Billy Crystal's My Giant, and it tackles back, hard. We struggle to make sense of a movie where half the exposition is revealed by a mush mouthed former basketball player who acts as well as he speaks, and the other half is translated with a heaping helping of Borscht Belt pseudo-charm. Is Billy Crystal the worst human being alive, or does he just play him in this movie? Find out with us.

34: "Spider Man Belushi" - Real Men

This week, Saturday Night Jive takes on the bizarre 80's action comedy Real Men starring SNL alum Jim Belushi and the late great John Ritter in an adventure involving a dominatrix, CIA clowns, aliens, and commies. It all kind of works, though we both could have done with less Jim Belushi.

33: "Death Glitch" - Man Of The Year

This week, Saturday Night Jive delves into the Robin Williams masterpiece Man Of The Year. We pay tribute to a fallen legend by tackling what may be his worst film, because that's just how we roll. And its a bad one folks, an attempt by non-comedy writers to write about comedy writers doing comedy. Oi.

32: "Up Skirt Jefferey Jones" - Mom And Dad Save The World

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we mourn the passing of a legend and promise to do a more fitting tribute next week. In the mean time, we talk about a shitty movie with a pedophile and Jon Lovitz. Mom and Dad Save The World is the film Lovitz quit SNL to make. Find out if it was worth it (Spoiler: No, it absolutely wasn't).

31: "Do You Worship Satan?" - Ghost Dad

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we take on the 1990 Christine Ebersole classic (also featuring Bill Cosby), Ghost Dad. We question the physics of ghostly existence, then criticize the movie for trying to explain them. We also get run of the mill satanists, deleted ghost sex, and a theory of racial allegory that kind of falls apart as soon as it begins. Its not as bad, or as good, as you might remember. Enjoy.

30: "God, I Miss The Cans" - Heartbeeps

We watched motherfucking Heartbeeps people. Its the worst movie we've seen so far on this podcast, which technically is something we say almost every week, but this time I'm pretty sure it's going to stick. This might just be the worst movie ever made and it stars Andy Kaufman. Watch as he doesn't fight a bear, doesn't move his mouth when he speaks, and generally doesn't try in a movie that couldn't have been helped if he had. Also, Randy Quaid is in it, and drinks beer from a pouch. Enjoy.

29: "What About Family Values?" - Crazy Enough

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we look at the obscure Netflix gem (?) Crazy Enough, a movie starring not one but two Chris Kattans in a wacky switcheroo comedy, minus the wacky comedy. Its pretty bad, and if we weren't an episode ahead, I might suggest that its the worst one we've seen so far (stay tuned next week for the actual worst). Still, this is something to behold, and highly recommend you don't behold it, but listen to our podcast about it anyway.

28: "Let Rain Lamar, Let Mother Fucking Rain" - Out Of Bounds

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we talk about the classic 80's action masterpiece of unintentional comedy Out of Bounds, starring SNL alum Anthony Michael Hall. This is a hidden gem if we've ever seen one, a super obscure movie not even released on DVD, and literally every moment has something to enjoy. Not necessarily for the reasons you were meant to, but still.

27: "Double Sarducci" - The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle

This week on Saturday Night Jive, George and Ben talk about a movie with five SNL alums, The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle. I honestly don't remember what we talked about, because this movie was so terrible, it burned a hole in my brain where my memories of it used to be. Enjoy.

26: "Revisionist History" - Jack And Jill

On this episode of Saturday Night Jive, we spend another week of hiatus watching an SNL related film, and this time its the notoriously bad Jack and Jill. Or is it? George and I make some unexpected discoveries and learn a lot about ourselves while delving into what many claim to be the worst Adam Sandler movie ever made (and that's saying something). We try to find the heart of the thing, applaud Al Pacino for his commitment, and retroactively forget to attach the theme song to the beginning of the MP3 file. Enjoy!

25: "Well His Name Was Cho Cho" - Karate Dog

This week on Saturday Night Jive, another week of SNL's hiatus leaves us watching yet another terrible movie featuring a former SNL cast member. This time its Chevy Chase again in Karate Dog, a kids film from 2006 where Chase voices the titular dog, who really doesn't do a lot of karate. We tackle the title conundrum along with other burning issues, like the utility of having three Poison Ivy movies, the amazing comic prowess of Oscar winner Jon Voight, and just how much the last fifteen minutes of the movie make up for the painfully lackluster first eighty. Enjoy.

24: "Cartoon Science" - Fat Albert

Hey hey hey, its a reeeeally shitty movie. This week we tackle the 2004 Keenan Thompson film Fat Albert, adapted from the classic cartoon of the same name that I defy you to remember as specifically as this movie apparently thinks you do. We spend most of the podcast trying to deconstruct the odd and sometimes off putting and overly sexualized metaphysics of this universe. Yeah, it gets dirty.

23: "More Hardcore Insertion Shots" - Caddyshack 2

SNL's 39th season is finally over, so Saturday Night Jive is going back to what we always do on the off weeks, talking about classic and not so classic movies featuring SNL cast members. To kick off the hiatus, we start with George's pick, Caddyshack 2, a movie neither of us had seen, and neither of us wish to see ever again. Learn about how Jackie Mason should never be allowed in movies, how a movie all about great performances can be ruined when you take out the great performances, and how much better it all would have been with more bestiality. Enjoy.

22: "The Piscopo Stamp Of Approval" - Andy Samberg/St. Vincent

This week we talk about the Season 39 finale of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Andy Samberg with musical guest St. Vincent. It sucked, so we mostly talk about other stuff that's more interesting. Like giant cans of beer and Ghost Rider peeing fire. Enjoy...the upcoming episodes where we talk about movies and this is fun again.

Monday, May 12, 2014

21: "Lorne Michaels Put Down Your Quill" - Charlize Theron/The Black Keys

This week we discuss the latest and penultimate episode of the SNL season, marvel at the host's adorableness, dish on the finale of a show that ended months ago, and give Lorne Michaels some much needed advice on how to run his 40 year old show better.

Monday, May 5, 2014

20: "Hi, Mom!" - Andrew Garfield/Coldplay

This week we discuss the latest episode of Saturday Night Live featuring Spiderman and the lovely Emma Stone, talk about some racist Basketball owner guy, get interrupted by a defender of the classic era of SNL who happens to be our mother (until we treat her shabbily so she'll go away), and then wrap it up with some trivia focused on the amazing SNL career of Julia Louis Dreyfuss. Enjoy.

19: "Podcasting...And Shit" - Jack

This week, in lieu of a new episode, we watch the classic Francis Ford Coppola movie Jack, starring Father Guido Sarducci himself, Don Novello, and Michael McKean...and also Robin Williams. Actually, this was just a flimsy excuse to re-watch a movie from our childhoods and see if it still held up to our now much more, ahem, mature standards. Along the way we ask the tough questions, like just what kind of sexual life this man child could possibly have, and whether or not his own mother secretly wants to fuck him. Enjoy everybody.

18: "Why Remind Us Of Slavery" - Almost Heroes

This week, without a new episode of SNL, we talk about SNL alum Chris Farley's last film Almost Heroes, which is almost halfway decent, but still pretty shitty. We're on the look out for body doubles, questioning director Christopher Guest's choices, and generally finding ourselves off topic discussing what movie we'll do next, because this one's so boring to talk about. Enjoy.

17: "Fuck You Hulu" - Anna Kendrick/Seth Rogen

This week on Saturday Night Jive we talk about the last two SNL episodes featuring sing songy hostess Anna Kendrick and big fat stoner Seth Rogen. We mostly forget about it though and talk about Healthcare, for some reason. Also, fuck Hulu, and Big Flats Beer for that matter. Enjoy.

16: "Full On Fucking Zombies" - Blues Brothers 2000

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we talk about the most unnecessary of sequels, Blues Brothers 2000, which didn't even come out in the year 2000. Also, its fucking terrible. We suffered through it, so now suffer through us talking about it for an hour. Enjoy
Episode Sixteen 

Monday, March 31, 2014

15: "Jews And The N Word" - Louis CK/Sam Smith

This week Saturday Night Jive looks at the latest episode of SNL featuring host Louis CK. We disagree as to the overall quality, with one of us declaring it one of the worst of the season, and the other declaring it possibly the best episode ever (guess which is which). Then we come up with a new opening line, discuss alienating CBS celebrities, and re-live controversial sketches from SNL history. Enjoy

14: "I Gotta Go Pee Pee" - Dead Heat

This week on Saturday Night Jive, we take a look at the greatest movie of all time, literally. It's called Dead Heat, its from 1988, and stars Treat Williams and Joe Motherfucking Piscopo. Watch it on Netflix streaming and be amazed, and listen to us talk about it for over an hour.
Episode Fourteen

Sunday, March 16, 2014

13: "Would You Like A Bite Of My Sausage?" - Boat Trip

This week in lieu of a new episode we talk about the 2002 Horatio Sanz vehicle Boat Trip, marveling at the first decent movie we've seen since starting this podcast, and applauding the film for not being nearly as homophobic as it could have been.

Monday, March 10, 2014

12: "GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!" - Lena Dunham/The National

This week we tackle the most recent episode of SNL featuring Girls creator and star Lena Dunham. Despite the notable and welcome lack of too much Kenan Thompson, we still find this episode mostly unbearable. We do our best crotchety old man impressions as we bemoan parodies of things we've never seen and references we don't understand, and then talk even more racism. Also, more character based trivia, involving monkeys, swamis, and floating heads, and an accidental pitch for the greatest youtube video ever (please don't steal it). Enjoy folks.

11: "Flappy McDingleberry" - Jim Parsons/Beck

This week on Saturday Night Jive we recap the recent Jim Parsons hosted episode and for the first time Ben likes an episode better than George, but in the end, they both agree that pooping your pants is always funny. Also, more racism, and the return of trivia. Enjoy!

Thursday, February 13, 2014

9: "Get That Cherry Pie Man!" - The Master Of Disguise

Episode Nine

8: "The Two Show Show" - Melissa McCarthy/Jonah Hill

Episode Eight
Snowpocalyspe!  Wintergeddon!  The Polar Vortex!  Anyway, we didn't do a show last week because it was too cold.  This week we cover two episodes of SNL, one hosted by Jonah Hill and one hosted by Melissa McCarthy.  Enjoy!

6: "Where All Cats Dicks Live" - The Cat In The Hat

Episode Six
This week we talk about our first SNL related movie.  Mike Myers was contractually obligated to play The Cat In The Hat because he refused to make the Sprockets movie.  So, we watched it!  It's George's favorite movie, Ben doesn't care for it.  Enjoy the first movie related episode of Saturday Night Jive!
