Saturday Night Jive Podcast

You want Oscars?  Get two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey on the phone.  Sweeten the deal with Academy Award winner Helen Hunt.  Throw in Academy Award nominee Haley Joel Osment.  But you really looking for Oscar gold?  Then you need Jon Bon Jovi and, more importantly, SNL alum Jay Mohr.  We watched Pay It Forward from 2000, a movie that is a failure on multiple levels.  Little Haley Joel Osment tries to change the world with kindness.  His mother's a drunk, his teacher has burns all over him, his best friend is a hobo junkie that looks like ..read more

And we're back with yet another installment of our award winning segment ...And We're Back! where we take a deep dive into an SNL recurring character and watch all their appearances.  Last time we gathered we watched the first 10 appearances of Mango and surprisingly couldn't stay away so we're back for one more slice of that sweet, sweet Mango pie.  In this episode we watch the final 6 appearances of everyone's favorite male stripper and get some diminishing results.  Somewhere along the way, we lost sight of Mango.  Gone are everything we loved about the c ..read more

345: "Fumble-rooni" - Necessary Roughness (1991)
Saturday Night Jive Podcast

We're digging into the Rob Schneider bucket once again this week as we watched Necessary Roughness from 1991 featuring the Robmeister calling plays for a football team full of underdogs.  Let me ask you a question.  If I said I found a movie that features Scott Bakula, Kathy Ireland, Larry Miller, Robert Loggia, Sinbad, Senator Fred Thompson and of course Hector Elizondo would you think that it would be the greatest movie ever?  So did we, but we found ourselves another thoroughly mediocre sports comedy.  Enjoy!

We're finally here.  A podcast years in the making  We're finally going back for another taste of Ed's special sauce with Good Burger 2 starring Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson and featuring a cavalcade of SNL cameos like Leslie Jones, Pete Davidson, Ego Nwodim, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow, Andy Samberg, Mikey Day, Bowen Yang, and Maya Rudolph.  We also get some cameos from All That alumni as well as some old lady who thinks she's got something on Abe Vigoda and apparently Sinbad (somewhere, I didn't see him).  Who wanted this, we do not know, but we got it ..read more

And we're back with another installment of our award winning segment ...And We're Back! where we take a deep dive into an SNL recurring character and watch all their appearances.  We're also back to doing episodes of Saturday Night Jive after a hiatus that is all Garry Marshall's fault.  This week we're talking Mango played by the inimitable Chris Kattan.  This character has more layers than we anticipated.  Since there are so many SNL appearances from Mango we decided to push ourselves to the limit and see how many we can watch before we tap out.  Surp ..read more

342: "Don't Worry Fat Kids" - Joe's Apartment (1996)
Saturday Night Jive Podcast
by Ben Bailey
6M ago
It's Ben's pick this week on Saturday Night Jive and since he's not bound by the rules of picking movies that relate to SNL we watched the Don Ho classic Joe's Apartment from 1996.  A beautiful love story about a kid in the big city fighting against corporate greed and trying to make his way in a world that doesn't understand him.  Also there's animated roaches that annoy and ruin every scene with their sped up voices.  This movie stars Jerry O'Connell, Robert Vaughn, and the amazing thespians Don Ho and Pepa.  MTV's first foray into feature films is a ..read more

341: "Just The Times When It Really Stinks" - SNL S20E05 - Sarah Jessica Parker / R.E.M.
Saturday Night Jive Podcast

You like hearing people talk about an old ass episode of SNL?  Well, this is the podcast for you!  This week on Saturday Night Jive we watched Season 20 Episode 5 hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker with musical guest R.E.M..  It's one of the worst episodes in the show's history.  This was the week where Michael O'Donoghue died and the Republicans took control of congress and the whole show feels like a liberal wake.  We got some good old fashioned SNL racism with a sketch taking place in a Fortune Cookie Factory, bad Brooklyn accents, Adam Sandler and Michael McKean fight ..read more

340: "Gee, I Hope These Kids Bone" - Camp Nowhere (1994)
Saturday Night Jive Podcast
by Ben Bailey

This week on Saturday Night Jive we watched another cheat pick.  Camp Nowhere from 1994 has no SNL alums in it but it does have Christopher Lloyd as a former drama teacher who lives in a van becoming the only adult supervision to a group of Lord Of The Flies wannabes.  A bunch of shitty kids decide to start their own summer camp with no rules.  It's the horniest movie starring children you'll ever watch (but you shouldn't watch it).  Also featuring Biff from Back To The Future, M. Emmett Walsh, the shy nun from Sister Act, and two kids who would later j ..read more

339: "Full Frontal Ray Romano" - Welcome To Mooseport (2004)
Saturday Night Jive Podcast

This week on Saturday Night Jive George's wet dreams become a reality as we finally watch Welcome To Mooseport starring two-time SNL host Ray Romano in his feature film debut and two-time Oscar winner Gene Hackman in his final time on screen.  This 2004 comedy follows a small town handyman who runs for mayor against the former President of the United States.  It's a Frank Capra-esque movie filled with colorful locals and one naked man.  It's not very funny, it's not very entertaining, it's not very memorable, but we watched it so now you have to listen ..read more

338: "That's A Baby Worth Hunting To Death" - The Pest (1997)
Saturday Night Jive Podcast
by Ben Bailey
7M ago
This week on Saturday Night Jive we watched the John Leguizamo classic The Pest from 1997.  John stars as the most annoying character ever put on film who is hunted by a Nazi in a spoof of The Most Dangerous Game.  This film has a small SNL connection as the director of this also directed a Saturday Night Christmas Special.  It also features that little scamp Jeffrey Jones who has made numerous appearances on this podcast since he's been in a lot of bad movies.  Here he plays a part he's played before, the villain who you root for because you really wan ..read more
