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.
