100: "Oh, Me Gibbers" - Johnny Be Good (1988)

Happy 100th episode!  In honor of that milestone we have accidentally unearthed one of the most incomprehensible movies ever made.  It's Johnny Be Good starring SNL alums Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Downey, Jr.  AMH plays a high school football star who is courted by college recruiters in this slightly absurd but painfully uninteresting film.  If you like bad improv, RDJ mugging and screaming, kicks to the nuts and musicals about interracial romances then this is the movie for you.  We find out a new euphemism for penis, get introduced to Uma Thurman, listen to a horrible Judas Priest cover song and question why the fuck we are still doing this after 100 episodes.  Enjoy!

98: "Hey, That's My Robot" - The Experts (1989)

It's Brian Doyle-Murray week on Saturday Night Jive and we have unearthed an insanely fun 80s oddity, The Experts.  John Travolta and Arye Gross star as two dumbass 80s nightclub guys who get kidnapped and sent to a secret town in Russia to open a happening go-go American nightclub in order to teach Russian spies how to be hip like MTV.  SCTV's Dave Thomas directed this comedy that is so 80s it even features a cool 80s robot.  It's a 80s Hope and Crosby-esque Road movie complete with montages, long dance sequences, bad hair, a commentary on socialism vs. capitalism, old ladies getting dildos, disturbing sex scenes and did I mention cool 80s robots?  John Travolta met his wife on this film and we get to see them consummate their marriage.  Sorry for the political talk in the middle but a movie about Russian politics got us into a thing.  Definite recommendations on this one.  Check out The Experts and enjoy us talking about it and George's shitty John Travolta impression.

97: "Lips And Assholes" - The Great Outdoors (1988)

One more round of Dan Aykroyd as this week we are talking about The John Hughes penned The Great Outdoors.  This episodic comedy features a terrific performance from the Oscar winning Bart The Bear but is very light on gags.  We discuss the creepiness of twins, the shitiness of Nintendo games, Dan Aykroyd's dieting tips, swap stories about bats and raccoons, and the ridiculous lack of plot in this movie.  Does Robert Prosky have "Bear Shining"?  Why does a restaurant even have a 96 ounce steak in the freezer to serve to customers?  Was Robert Prosky planning a 'Weekend At Bernies' subplot?  Why is John Candy so mad at Dan Ayrkoyd when half of the time it is his own fault that he is having a miserable time?  All this and more on this weeks Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!
