10 Movies to Watch This Summer Featuring SNL Cast Members

Right about now is a great time to saddle up the couch, turn the fan on, and watch some movies. As comedy fans, we remember often being sad about summer because, at one point, Saturday Night Live was actually funny on a consistent basis. When SNL would stop airing new shows and go on hiatus, most of the funniest folks from the show would be off making movies during the summer. So here at Jackalope Ranch, we thought it would be fun to look at some of the more interesting movies that SNL alums have made over the years.

Please note that we said "interesting" and not "best." The "best" ones are another list altogether. These are some of the odd, quirky, and just plain silly movies that might help you get through the dog days.
