This week on Saturday Night Jive we discuss two episodes of SNL hosted by Larry David and Melissa McCarthy and then dissect a hidden gem from 1991 called "Highway To Hell" featuring two SNL alums; Ben Stiller and Gilbert Gottfried as Attila The Hun and Adolph Hitler, respectively. Is this movie a comedy, a thriller, a horror, a love story between Satan and a young boy? Nobody really knows. Stay tuned after the show for "Maybe The Next Time", the baffling musical choice that ends the movie.

How did Sinbad get in that mailbox? If you've seen the poster for the 1995 movie "Houseguest", that question has been on your mind for the past 21 years. This week on Saturday Night Jive we will delve deep into that question and more as we discuss, sadly, one of Phil Hartman's few starring vehicles. We also question the business model of the mafia, discuss the price of 1994 baseball cards, get to the bottom of Jeffrey Jones's sex offender convictions, get into some mediocre 90s stand-up comedians, pitch a remake of "The Parent Trap" and plan some insurance fraud. Enjoy and stay tuned for some bizarre Christmas carol parodies performed by the stars of the film.

This week we are digging in (get it? like a dog) to another film in the Air Buddies franchise. We're getting our fright on and talking Spooky Buddies. This may be the final time we discuss a Buddies film as Ben wants to kill himself. George feels that we go out on top with one of the better installments (that is until we get to Santa Buddies in December). Does Harland Williams give a credible performance? How long can you play Monster Mash? How horrible are these dog owners? Who gave a dog a license to run a business? Is the director of these films making movies specifically for George? These questions and more on this week's Saturday Night Jive. Also, we know it's a cheat to watch this movie for the podcast as it features no SNL castmember, but the buddies are all offspring of a dog played by Molly Shannon so it is canon. See you next time with more shit.
