79: "Magical Tears" - Underdogs aka Metegol (2016)

This week on Saturday Night Jive we are talking about the U.S. dub of Underdogs, an Argentinian animated film featuring the voices of 3 SNL alums.  Bobby Moynhian, Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah all make appearances in this movie, available on Netflix streaming.  A young man is in a pickle when his town is bought by his childhood bully and the restaurant he works at is destroyed.  His solution, challenge him to a soccer match with the help of his tiny Foosball team which has become sentient because of his magic tears.  The movie is actually pretty good, especially once we get to a montage where our hero gathers a ragtag group of townies to make up his team (including a hermit, an emo kid, a criminal and a catholic priest).  Bobby Moynihan plays 4 characters in the movie and we also discuss the fact that he may be in the top tier of all-time SNL cast members.  The movie also features the voices of Nicholas Hoult, Mel Brooks, Ariana Grande and Chazz Palminteri.  Enjoy!
