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.
