85: "Mother Flipping Viking High Divers" - Airheads (1994)

We're here to talk about a movie featuring 3 SNL alums, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler and Michael McKean all star in 'Airheads' from 1994.  This is one of the better movies we've covered on Saturday Night Jive.  We assumed a movie we liked as kids would not hold up but we both really liked the characters and thought it was a fun and funny 90s film.  Airheads is the story of 3 rockers who take a radio station hostage in order to get their demo played.  It also stars Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi, Joe Mantegna, Ernie Hudson, Michael Richards and David Arquette, all giving good performances.  Enjoy!

84: "Please Don't Send Me To The Cornfield, Ed" - Good Burger (1997)

We're back to discuss yet another Kenan Thompson film.  It's Good Burger, the Kenan and Kel film from Nickelodeon Studios.  In this cinema classic we follow a mentally challenged young man who gets screwed over and taken advantage of by his best friend.  Ed, our favorite fast food employee, is obviously a stoner character but since this is a children's film we just say he's comically stupid.  Unfortunately, since he is also a child, it is hard to join in on the fun when all we want to do is make sure he gets home okay.  How does Good Burger stay in business when mental defectives run the cash register?  Can you make a children's film with murder and cannibalism in it?  Why do they send an adult woman to seduce a child?  Is there a greater conspiracy involving Ed's wealthy and eccentric family?  Who books the guests for Linda Richman's talk show?  All these questions will be answered as well as a lot of Abe Vigoda love in this very un-PC episode of Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!

83: "Troll A Good Novie" - Troll (1986)

It's Brad Hall week on Saturday Night Jive and we are talking about the 1986 classic, also featuring his wife and fellow SNL alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Troll.  I think we were all a little surprised by how this movie is pretty good.  Join us as we watch Harry Potter, Jr. discover that his little sister has been possessed by a troll and is trying to turn his entire apartment into a fantasy world.  Enjoy!

82: "A 50 Dollar Bill In A Pile Of Turds" - Little Nicky (2000)

This week on Saturday Night Jive we are talking Adam Sandler's first outright bomb, the 2000 comedy Little Nicky.  Here he plays the son of the devil who has to save hell from his evil brothers.  It is filled with homophobia, goofy voices and plenty of product placement for Popeye's Chicken.  We dance around talking about this movie because it really is a bummer to watch and talk about.  We diverge into discussions about Hitler jokes, The Arquette family and insertion shots in porn.  Stay tuned next week for a hopefully livelier discussion of a Brad Hall film and check out George's blog to read some reviews of SNL from season 20 and his youtube page, "Georgebaileyactor" to see some short films we have made.
