Why don't they make movies based on popular recurring Saturday Night Live sketches anymore? Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous Why don't they make movies based on popular recurring Saturday Night Live sketches anymore?
because there are no popular recurring Saturday Night Live sketches anymore
FPBP. what even was the last SNL sketch to actually become relevant to the public consciousness?
Elon musk mario courtroom
The sketch where Bowen Yang played a Chinese guy who acted really gay
Rupert S. Pumpkins. It was obnoxious, but it got a lot of attention.
This was the moment where it was solidified that SNL was truly dead. Completely tone deaf and pure cringe.
Everything with Pete Davidson is basically a modern meta version of this
The guy is so gross and off-putting that I refuse to watch anything he does. Haven't even touched Taco Bell since he started doing those shitty commercials.
>Haven't even touched Taco Bell since he started doing those shitty commercials.
that's how it works for me. I see him, LeBron, Peyton Manning, Cena or other losers being sales reps, I stop buying it.
Does SNL even do characters anymore? Aren’t all their sketches now just based on orange man or whatever outrage libfag shit in the news they’re mad about that week?
Every time I try to watch the show, orange man appears and I skip the rest. Can't stand the guy so why would I want to see people pretending to be him?
It’s Pat sequel in the works?
That was a rip-off of a Farley "Bennet Brauer" sketch.
I'm not the norm. I'm not camera friendly.
>the Ladies Man
those movies were doled out as bonuses to keep wages down
How did they never make a Richmeister movie?
It’s hard to believe this guy used to be a popular comedian now he’s just the guy who Adam Sandler knows
He plays a very similar character doing the announcing for the college football team in the movie Necessary Roughness
Do people seriously still watch snl? You just watch YouTube clips of it right?
The only person I know who watches it is an insufferable over-educated retarded cunt who will mindlessly consume anything popular.
Michaels used to have a contractual obligation in the performers' contracts to appear in one of those, where they were permitted to turn down only one idea. I think he removed this once he realized no one fucking likes those movies and they damage the careers of their stars.
was thirteen years ago
They don't really have stars anymore, just a bunch of drama kid twats. The closest thing they've had for the last 20 years are those horrible YouTube comedy troupes like Lonely Island and now the much worse, if you can believe it, Don't Destroy nepobaby troupe. They don't really require a character as the group are the 'brands' that they try and transition to film. (Not counting skeet, which was a fluke pushed down everyone's throats after Lorne thought he could court the zoomer crowd after skeet became famous to them for dating Ariana Grande--he was almost completely phased out the show before that happened)
I watched when Adam Sandler hosted. I couldn't stand the sketches but he there was a great fake ad for a sex aid which was funny. Weekend Update was fucked though. They were always laughing at their own jokes. Fucking hacks.
DRUMPF BAD: THE MOVIE
They do. Literally no one saw it.
>gf and I are the only people in the theater
>enjoying it enough for just being a too long Lonely Island sketch
>old lady walks in late
>a few minutes later Maya Rudolph says "moron"
I remember the moment fondly.
I saw Snakes on a Plane in the theater. There was a black woman who had to be at least 300 pounds and her kid who was probably 5 sitting a few rows in front of me. When the scene with the white couple fucking in the bathroom came on, she dragged her kid out of the theater while screaming about how disgusting the movie was.
Very funny as well.
Not that time. She was really excited about the movie so I didn't distract her. We did some stuff in a few other movies though.
I love the image that the old lady was just waking down the isle and before she takes a seat Maya just says moron unprompted and she no longer feels welcome
Regardless, did you finger bang your gf?
Popstar wasn't an SNL movie though. The last actual SNL movie was MacGruber, which nobody asked for.
What's Saturday Night Live?
Exit to Eden
Backfield in Motion
The Master of Disguise
Taxi (american remake)
Artie Lange's Beer League
Trial and Error
Employee of the Month
Hostage for a Day
Freddy Got Fingered
and of course, chairman of the board
>but they are not based on snl sketches!
the point is, nobody wants to see comedians in movies. all bombed.
You can likewise write a list of some of the successful movies of all time starring comedians
Most things with Eddie Murphy from the early 80s to mid-90s
Will Ferrell movies with Adam McKay
Most things with Jim Carrey
Anything with Adam Sandler
Seinfeld the most successful tv show of all time
I like when they made that joke about how trump is bad
It's just like my favourite Harry Pootter when they used the Force against Gargamel.That is the way
the macgruber series was pretty damn funny.
what kind of person enjoys ~~*modern snl*~~ you may wonder? THESE TYPES OF PEOPLE!
>they have the right build to play DeSantis
they? more than one person should play desantis i dont get it?
lol since when does DeSantis have a build like this
