120: "What's This? Karate-oke?" - Duets (2000)

We found a weird one.  Maya Rudolph appears in the 2000 karaoke road trip drama Duets and she also acted as the film's music supervisor?  Paul Giamatti leaves his family, Huey Lewis hustles with his voice, Andre Braugher robs to sing, Gwyneth Paltrow saves her mayonnaise packets and Maria Bello uses blowjobs as currency all in their quest to win that cool cool $5,000 in the karaoke competition in Omaha.  What the fuck was this thing that we watched?  Words can only begin to describe the utter bizzareness of this film.  Special thanks to Karaoke Karl, wherever you are.  Enjoy!

119: "Are You Having A Big Gay Sex Party In The Woods, Timothy Bottoms?" - Invaders From Mars (1986)

 
 
We're back and we're talking Laraine Newman this week and the 1986 Canon film classic Invaders From Mars.  Let's go up to the top of that hill and talk about a fairly charming in its own way horror movie where martians take over people's brains.  We're joined this week by George's new dog and his cat who make their presence known.  Once again we wonder why they hid all the cool 1980s robots from us and what George will be like as a parent when there are monsters under his child's bed.  Enjoy!

118: "The Maury Povich Show Is Still In Its Infancy" - Father's Day (1997)




It's finally here!  We're doing Father's Day from 1997 featuring 3 SNL alums, Billy Crystal, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late great Charles Rocket.  Buckle up kids, this is a weird fucking movie.  Two strangers who boned the same chick 17 years ago team up to find their missing possible son.  You know you're in trouble when in one of the first scenes of the movie Robin Williams puts a gun in his mouth.  Where did Robin Williams get a closet full of disguises?  Why does Mel Gibson cameo in this movie?  How much did Sugar Ray pay to costar in this film?  Why couldn't this be a nice movie about Bruce Greenwood escaping from a porta-potty?  These questions and more on this week's episode of Saturday Night Jive.  Enjoy!

117: " You Want To Play Donald Duck?" - Haunted Honeymoon (1986)

Original Not Ready For Primetime Player Gilda Radner stars in Haunted Honeymoon from 1986 directed by her then husband Gene Wilder.  This movie is terrible.  Dom DeLuise co-stars as a big fat lady who propels herself down a staircase with her farts.  Was this meant to be a comedy?  Is Gene Wilder a bad director, or a good director who doesn't know how to stage jokes?  Who cares who the villain is when you're introduced to 10 characters, each more boring than the next?  And can we stop with the "It was all a dream" twist ending?  We desperately try to fill an hour talking about this un-enjoyable comedy.  Enjoy!
