Not-so-live from New York: the 5 Best Movies Made from Saturday Night Live Sketches

Over the years, Saturday Night Live sketches have provided us with some of the funniest and most memorable characters in TV history. In short, punchy bits, certain characters manage to really stand out and stick with the audience enough to warrant a recurring bit. And once in a while, they become popular enough that Lorne Michaels will green light a feature film and send the characters onto the big screen. While they don’t all necessarily work (Sorry, Stuart Saves His Family), some of them actually turned out to be pretty damn funny. These are the top five movies based on SNL sketches.

There you have it, the very best of the SNL sketches-turned movies. And allow us to offer our sincerest apologies to the seven huge fans of “Night at the Roxbury,” as well as to the zero huge fans of “It’s Pat! The Movie,” but there simply wasn’t enough room on the list to try to polish those turds. If you think they absolutely deserve to make the cut, then throw together a list of your own, and give our regards to Julia Sweeney.
