Not since 'The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle' have we seen a movie with so many SNL alumni. You buy your ticket because of Nora Dunn but wait, let me raise you Cheri Oteri. Does it get better? How about Amy Poehler? Who's that knocking on the door? Why, it's Jon Lovitz and he brought along Janeane Garofalo. This week we talk 'Southland Tales' and George takes away Ben's ability to pick movies we watch. Ben is able to figure out what is happening and explain the plot while George spends most of the episode dumbfounded. Why is Justin Timberlake singing? Does Jon Lovitz have uncontrollable charisma? Was Donnie Darko over rated? Is there a better brain trust than Wallace Shawn, Booger and the Poltergeist lady? Why can't pimps commit suicide? All this and more on this week's Saturday Night Jive.

The great debate continues! We have been trying to find a film that George loves as much as Ben loves "Toys". We stumbled upon it accidentally and it is the 1988 Bobcat Goldthwait vehicle "Hot To Trot" also featuring SNL alums Mary Gross, Tim Kazurinsky and Gilbert Gottfried as "The Dentist". This podcast features a lot of giggling George and exasperated Ben. Listen and enjoy our discussion of horse sex, insider trading, Dabney Coleman's sex stable and more.

We finally take on what has been called one of the worst movies of all time. Freddy Got Fingered is a loving tribute from a son to his father, featuring an award worthy performance from SNL alum Anthony Michael Hall. The film follows Gort as he learns to become a man, an animator and an animal jerk off enthusiast. This movie is insanely awful. We discuss Tom Green's character arc to jerk off bigger animals, the sadness of Rip Torn, why this movie is titled the way it is, and it gets a bit serious as we try to figure out if Tom Green is seriously mentally challenged.

This week we talk the latest Adam Sandler film Pixels. This is our first installment of the podcast which features a movie in theaters now, although probably not in theaters for very long. This movie has definitely been unfairly maligned by critics but it still has some problems. We discuss how this movie could have been better with Jesse Eisenberg, Jackie Earl Haley, Shaq and David Wain directing, how do you use cheat codes in real life situations and why Sandler looks so bored when he is blasting aliens. Did Jack And Jill kill his spirit or was he always terrible? We discuss, you decide.

We get into the great debate over whether Toys is an act of whimsy with levels of artistic merit, or a huge piece of shit. Ben is on the former, George is on the latter. We may not solve this conundrum but we do solve the conspiracy of 9/11. Enjoy this discussion, featuring SNL alum Joan Cusack, spoiler alert, she's a god damn robot.

This week we wrap our minds around Dan Aykroyd's directorial debut and coincidentally the last time anyone let him near a camera. It's Nothing But Trouble, a bizarre dystopian fable with Chevy Chase quips, female John Candy, Inbred poop monster brothers, Brazilian lovers or, are they siblings, and of course a dick nose. We discuss that dick nose at length, where other dicks might be and more with special guests Bryan (George's roommate) and Morgan (the homeless guy sleeping on George's couch).
