103: "If Taylor Negron Asks You To Train A Monkey..." - Funky Monkey (2004)/Steel Collar Man

A few weeks ago we learned that something existed on the internet too intriguing not to be discussed.  We watched the failed 1985 pilot for Steel Collar Man starring Charles Rocket as a robot.  After that we talk about the 2004 comedy featuring SNL alum Gilbert Gottfried Funky Monkey.  Matthew Modine rescues a monkey from an evil laboratory run by Taylor Negron and then takes him on a mission of self discovery.  Is Taylor Negron making love to the camera?  What convinced Matthew Modine to do a movie with a monkey?  Why so many Teen Wolfs?  Who has the most sexual chemistry in this movie?  How long does knockout spray last?  Should we be exposing our children to Taylor Negron?  All these questions and more in this week's Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!

102: "Testing The Jew Pants" - North (1994)

Rogert Ebert lived a long life and saw a lot of movies, this guy saw 'Caligula', 'Stop, Or My Mom Will Shoot", every movie we've seen for this podcast, but no movie filled him with so much hate other than Rob Reiner's North from 1994.  This is movie has a cavalcade of SNL alums including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jon Lovitz, Dan Aykroyd and Alan Zwiebel.  Does the movie deserve the scorn it got?  Yes and no, it's perfectly inoffensive but it does have its faults.  Why would you put a character named Mr. Fingers in a children's movie?  Why include a tired Bruce Willis as an unnecessary narrator?  Why so casually racist?  Who is gonna test those jew pants?  Does George have a blatant ignorance about eskimos?  What does Dan Aykroyd feed his ass?  All these questions and more in this weeks Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!

101: "Not Much, But I Did Take That Big Shit" - Wagons East (1994)

You didn't think a 1990s western comedy could be worse than 'Almost Heroes', did you?  Well we found some more scum at the bottom of that barrel that also features an SNL cast member.  'Wagons East' starring Richard Lewis and John Candy and featuring a pretty funny performance by Mr. I'm Gonna Say The F Word On Live TV Then Get Murdered In A Cornfield And Call It A Suicide himself, Charles Rocket.  What a coincidence that 2 famous overweight comedians died filming bad western comedies.  The most interesting part of this movie if trying to spot a dead man's stunt double.  We talk about whether or not John Candy was actually a comic actor or just an actor who appeared in comedies, because he's not that funny, ponder some more theories on Charles Rocket's death and make a stand for legal murder.  Enjoy!
Also, if you're interested the Charles Rocket as a robot TV pilot we mention is called 'Steel Collar Man' and you can watch some of it on YouTube, and it is insane.
