What is the Worst Saturday Night Live Film?
MacGruber was released to the theaters this weekend, and preliminary reviews put it among the best SNL films. Previous to MacGruber, Lorne Michaels and Saturday Night Live have put out ten films, including sequels, over the past 30 years based on short sketches. They created a couple of classics and a bunch of movies so awful it makes me never want to go to any theater that the flick had tainted.
The Blues Brothers and Wayne’s World would likely top reader polls as the best of the bunch, so instead, we’ll ask you what film is the worst. That is sure to yield more compelling results. What better thing to do with your time than to vote for the worst Saturday Night Live film?
But first, the candidates:
A silly movie, sure, but it had such great music that it became a classic. Rest in peace, John Belushi. Couldn’t find a clip that I could embed, so here’s Soul Man!
This Mike Meyers/Dana Carvey movie made bank and resurrected Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. Schwiiing!
Many years after the skit even aired, an all-star cast made this travesty of a flick.
Of course they put out a sequel. But the joke was over.
The Julia Sweeney skit was hilarious the first few times, then it got old, then it was outright terrible on the big screen.
This is the reason why no one should have voted for Al Franken as senator of Minnesota.
The highlight of Chris Katan’s career. And who would’ve thought Will Ferrel would’ve made it so big?
Again, a funny skit, but the Molly Shannon character just didn’t work well as a full-length feature.
This skit wasn’t even funny… This is my vote for the worst.
