If you thought Chris Farley channeled his inner motivational speaker only in his SNL years, you should see this video of the character taking shape back in Farley’s Second City comedy days.

It doesn’t appear to have had much of an evolution, which is just fine, because the character and sketch approach comedic perfection. And it rings true for all of us, because deep down, our darkest fear is living in a van down by the river.

Which river? Doesn’t matter. They’re all terrible.

Chris Farley was truly a genius comedian gone before his time was up. Because he would have NAILED this role. I think we might need to use some Robert Zemeckis technology to make this thing happen for real.

Chris Farley was easily distracted. That’s why it took five years to film Beverly Hills Ninja.

We’re stretching the definition of “news” here, but…

About four years back, someone (bin Laden?) thought that it would be a good idea to make a sequel to the uber-crappy Chris Farley vehicle Beverly Hills Ninja. Apparently going for “degree of difficulty” points, the investors decided that they wanted to shoot the thing in South Korea, because the investors were South Korean.

Further adding difficulty to the project was the fact that the star off the film, Chris Farley, has been dead for 14 years. No matter, David Hasselhoff is still alive (we think), and he was gonna pick up where Bennett Brower left off.

Alas, it was not to be. The investors had a falling out with the film’s proposed producer, a scholarship recipient from the AFI. He may have been overqualified. Anyway, lawsuits ensued, and the quick and dirty is the film will never be made or see the light of day.

So that movie you never knew about, which was a sequel to a film people barely knew about, will never be shown.

Man, Friday news is just the worst, isn’t it? (A.V. Club)

The post In Honor Of Columbus Day: 7 Great Movie Explorers appeared first on Screen Junkies.

A mere 519 years ago, Italian explorer Christopher Columbus discovered America. Kinda bullsh*t that he had to work on a bank holiday, but whatever, we got a country out of the deal.

He is unquestionably one of the greatest explorers in history. In fact, I’d be hard-pressed to name more than a few others. Unless those explorers had a movie based on their trials and travails. In which case, I’m a real history buff.

Carl Fredricksen and Russell – Up

You’re never too old to become an explorer. Carl Fredricksen learns this after using thousands of helium balloons to convert his house into an airship and set its course for Paradise Falls, South America. He picks up Russell by mistake and brings him along for the exotic adventure. Technically, they weren’t the first to discover Paradise Falls but they were the only explorers to survive their visit there. So, points go to them.

Edwards & Hunt - Almost Heroes

Sure, everyone knows about Lewis and Clarke. But Edwards and Hunt have sadly been lost to history. Who would have thought that there was a rival gang of overweight explorer fighting bears, Indians, and eagles while trying to discove the Pacific Ocean? Where’s their holiday??

A sh*t ton of kids, explosions, muscular women, a boa constrictor, and clown tears. Tonight’s TV Preview is my 12th birthday all over again.

CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP

NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!

 

OCTOMOM: THE INCREDIBLE UNSEEN FOOTAGE
Network:
FOX
Time: 8 – 10PM

Reasons to watch: She rose to infamy earlier this year when she popped out eight kids in a bid to get rich and famous on TV. Of course her plan failed as no network would sink to the level of exploita– oh right. I forgot that FOX exists. Their ethics are as loose as her womb.

 

 


BOBB’E SAYS
Network:
CARTOON NETWORK
Time: 8 – 8:30PM

Reasons to watch: Hilarious kid actor Bobb’e J. Thompson has a new show where he gives advice on style, success, and gaining popularity. Can a thirteen year-old really dispense useful sage wisdom? This one can. Did you see Role Models? He’s wise beyond his years. In fact, his precociousness has led to some debate at Screen Junkies HQ. Patrick reckons that he’s an adult in a kid’s body a la Andy Milonakis and I purport that he’s actually an eternal child vampire a la Kirsten Dunst in Interview With The Vampire.

 

 


XXX: STATE OF THE UNION
Network:
FX
Time: 8 – 10PM

Reasons to watch: When history looks back, the original XXX will be remembered as being completely stupid. It was so dumb that I’m surprised the filmmakers managed to save some retarded for the sequel. At least this time around they ditch the extreme sports junkie angle and get down to a more straight-up action movie. After all, the action is all this movie has to offer. I recommend watching it with the volume turned off.

 

 


TRAGIC SIDE OF COMEDY
Network:
BIOGRAPHY
Time: 9 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: This special focuses on the tragic lives of comedians. Amongst those profiled are John Belushi, Farley, and Phil Hartman. Twelve years later and Farley’s absence is still sorely felt. Our current funny fat guys have really got to step it up. I’m just chuckling over here. Not guffawing.

 

 


MAN VS. WILD
Network:
DISCOVERY
Time: 10 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: Tonight, Bear Gryll’s has to contend with a 9-foot boa constrictor. Well, he doesn’t have to. He chooses to. Just like the picture above where he chooses to eat a zebra carcass. This guy is nuts. He’s like a Tom Green that housewives want to bang.

 

 


TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY
Network:
E!
Time: 10 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: The world of female bodybuilding is explored. If you have any love or respect for your penis, you’ll read a book. A book with pictures of non-swollen women in it.

WHO’S ON LATE

LETTERMAN
Mike Myers; Ken Burns

CONAN (repeat)
Judd Apatow; Meryl Streep; The Fray

KIMMEL (repeat)
Katherine Heigl; David and Shaun Cassidy

FERGUSON
Dane Cook; Peter Travers

FALLON
(repeat)
Betty White; Opie and Anthony; Martha Wainwright
