There’s a certain type of film that immediately springs to mind with mention of “Saturday Night Live” movies.
For those that choose to take the charitable approach, the best ones spring to mind: Wayne’s World and The Blues Brothers. However, for many, it’s the less successful ones that have come to typify the late night institution’s contribution to the silver screen … Coneheads, MacGruber, Superstar, It’s Pat … and so on.
However, there’s a third category of "SNL" movies that the show doesn’t get nearly enough credit for. Regular cast members and alumni have gone on to become huge stars during and oftentimes after their respective runs on the show have finished. These films are often byproducts of the experience and confidence comedians hone over their years on the program and sometimes are even borne out of ideas from the cast members themselves.
