Disney's been having great success with live-action remakes of its classic animated films. So why not cast, as Saturday Night Live did last night, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as everyone's favorite deer ... and reconfigure the story as an over-the-top action thriller, with plenty of puns and guns for all? WHAM BAM BAMBI!
Last night's Saturday Night Live was hosted by Chris Hemsworth. Naturally, Avengers: Age of Ultron ... specifically its final scene ... made for a ripe target. Watch the video below, but beware: SPOILERS GALORE! (Obviously not really). Booooom!
Yesterday was the anniversary of one of the most surreal music performances in TV story: 35 years ago David Bowie ushered the 1980s in Saturday Night Live. The producers censored a gay reference in the last of his three-song set—but they missed him repeatedly showing a giant penis at the end of it. [NSFW-ish]
Interstellar has just become the third most successful foreign film in South Korea, and that means SPOOFS! Watch the totally ridiculous Interstellar takedown from Korea's Saturday Night Live (yes, there's a Korean SNL!).
A few weeks ago, the new Star Wars teaser trailer caused the internet to lose its collective shit. But amidst all the Millenium Falcon and soccer-ball-droid drooling, Saturday Night Live wanted to make sure that you don't lose sight of one very important fact: By now, the original characters are just a bunch of old,…
"Written entirely from the comment section of a Hunger Games trailer." Behold Saturday Night Live's Group Hopper movie. Stuffed full of arbitrary rules and terrible names for every hero and villain, this may be our favorite YA movie ever.
Last night, Saturday Night Live kicked off its 40th season (did you watch it!). It's a major milestone to be sure, but how exactly is it made? Countless books have been written on the subject but established actor and fledgling documentarian James Franco tries to capture the tortuous late nights and constant…
In his long and celebrated life, Saturday Night Live's longtime announcer Don Pardo was sort of the ringmaster of the circus that is American comedy. He introduced Steve Martin and Bill Murray to America back in the 1970s. He introduced Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Al Franken in the 1980s. In the 1990s, it was Will Ferrell…
Back in the day, Tom Schiller wrote and directed weird and funny short films for Saturday Night Live, in the "Schiller's Reel" segments. Most of these are hard to see now — and so is Nothing Lasts Forever, the full-length science fiction movie Schiller directed in 1984. Except that the whole thing is on Youtube.
Hunger Games and Catching Fire star Josh Hutcherson hosted last night's Saturday Night Live, which meant a bit of obligatory Panem pageantry, with two cast members fake-battling to the death.
Last night's Saturday Night Live asked the question, "What if Wes Anderson directed a horror movie?" The result, The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders, is naturally an offbeat and delightful little gorefest.
Oh, Saturday Night Live. You saw fit to give us not one but two space-themed sketches during last night's episode, including one that referenced the NASA shutdown. Unfortunately, they were both terrible.
Zach Galifianakis graced Saturday Night Live with his manic, bearded hosting skills last night and showed us that it's not easy being green. Or, more precisely, it's not easy being dressed as a green dragon while enduring game show humiliation.
On last night's Saturday Night Live, host Kevin Hart attempted to join Rick's group while hiding a nasty zombie bite. While Rick, Carl, Darryl, and Maggie try to figure out whether their new potential recruit is turning zombie, Hart plays on their fear of being thought racists, which outweighs their fear of zombies.…
Last night, our favorite Hunger Games victor Jennifer Lawrence graced Saturday Night Live with her squirrel-hunting, tribute-slaying presence. And the SNL team decided it would be the perfect opportunity to take aim at a couple of genre films, including, of course, The Hunger Games. But the heavy production values…
Last night, Saturday Night Live ran a little sketch pairing off some tech pundits with Foxconn workers over complaints about the iPhone 5, and we were lucky enough to be one of the tech-whiner targets.
This weekend, Saturday Night Live and guest host Sofia Vergara premiered their inevitable Hunger Games sketch. It was pretty painful. Not a knock to the actors, but come on! This show must have known they were going to need to pull a Hunger Games joke out of their hat at some point, and this was it. Thankfully, the…
Last night's Saturday Night Live took us past happily ever after and into the not-so-magical realm of sham marriages, bankruptcy, and alcoholism, all with a confessional camera. It's as filled with cat fights and eye-rolling as you'd expect, but with some inspired moments. Dwarven high-fives for all!
Were Harry Potter's best days in school? Let's face it, those days at Hogwarts were hard to top: Quidditch stardom, a cute girlfriend, defeating the Dark Lord while saving the entire school. Could Harry move on after that, or would he be one of those guys who keeps hanging around his old school?
