In 2011 Francis Ford Coppola made an almost unwatchable horror film called "Twixt". Luckily, he gave Father Guido Sarducci aka Don Novello a small part so we can discuss it on Saturday Night Jive. This movie put Ben to sleep and made George scream obscenities at the TV. What happened to Francis Ford Coppola and does he know how shitty this is? Is this an elaborate con? Why do all alternate dimensions have to do with Hitler? Is 30,000 books sold OK business? Was this movie secretly directed by a goat? These questions and more in this week's Saturday Night Jive. Enjoy!

Meninists get ready, we're talking 2016's Ghostbusters! Alas, you misguided white men, your protests are in vain. This movie stinks with or without a controversy. Join us for a spirited discussion on one of the worst reboots in a summer full of them. This movie has a lot of gags but no connective tissue. It's almost as if they cut the plot from the movie to make room for more ad-libbed jokes, which is evidenced by it's Master Of Disguise like end credits. Ghostbusters stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and (don't worry) a ton of superfluous cameos from the original movie.

Remember when Richard Dreyfuss did a movie almost entirely in blackface? No? Well, you've never seen Krippendorf's Tribe! What starts off as a mediocre 90s family comedy turns into a hidden gem that may or may not know just how racist it is. This family comedy has circumcision, a girl's first period, pig piss, dildos, a lot of blackface and a dirty dirty sex scene (also in blackface). This week's SNL alum was Siobhan Fallon, who you may not rememeber from SNL, but she will always have a special place in our hearts for introducing us to this bizarre movie. How does a college afford to have such a big anthropology staff? How much of a piece of human garbage is James Krippendorf? Why can't Paul Giamatti play Big Momma? How could you lie to Larry Swift? and, oh my god, that sex scene...

In 1996 Jon Lovitz starred in the pop culture parody High School High. 20 years later, we are here to discuss it. Unfortunately, this movie leaves little to talk about. It's a spoof movie with about a 50% joke to laugh ratio. We do get to an actual conversation about SNL though, so that's a plus. How racist is this movie? Does it realize it's racism? Who is the worst actor to have an Oscar? Is Rhinestone Cowboy a listenable song? These questions and more on this week's episode of Saturday Night Jive.
