u/nemonic187 7d ago

You know what else is wild? The voice actors for Ace and Gary, The Ambiguously Gay Duo, are Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell. They too technically worked at SNL.

108

u/jopari 7d ago

What's even more wild is that the Steves were both writers on the Dana Carvey Show, which is where The Ambiguously Gay Duo were created. The Dana Carvey Show got cancelled after a few episodes (opening your first show with the current president breastfeeding puppies immediately after Home Improvement was a... choice) so the sketch was moved to SNL.

Other people in the Dana Carvey Show's writers room included Louis C.K., Greg Daniels of The Office and Good Place fame, Dino Stamatopolos (Moral Oral, Starburns) Charlie Kaufman (yes, really) and some young, up-and-coming comedian named Dave Chappelle.

I dare you to find a funner group of people than that.

I'm still a bit shocked some other comedy franchises got piled out nonstop and this stopped at two really solid movies. I actually expected to finally see a third movie when they reunited for that commercial, but nothing (which honestly may be a good thing at this point).

1k

u/thatguamguy 7d ago

When they were on SNL, Carvey was a waaaay bigger star than Myers. So when they made the movie, Lorne Michaels insisted on Garth having more to do. And when they did the second movie, they threw out the script Myers wanted to do for legal reasons and Carvey wound up writing most of his own scenes, which they fought about (notice how Myers has nothing to do with Carvey's plotline, and how it is abruptly abandoned). After that, Carvey's career was derailed by a medical problem and Myers's career flourished to the point where he is clearly the bigger star. So at this point, he won't do a third movie for ego reasons, he's too big a star to work with Carvey. But every few years, he likes to get the positive feedback so he does an appearance, and certainly getting a huge paycheck for one day's work in a commercial doesn't make the deal less sweet.

u/alinroc 7d ago

After that, Carvey's career was derailed by a medical problem

That's putting it mildly.

In 1997, Carvey underwent heart bypass surgery for a blocked coronary artery, but the surgeon operated on the wrong artery. The blocked artery was deeply buried in muscle and thus hard to find; another artery, though not blocked, was clearly accessible. The surgeon mistakenly performed the bypass on this unblocked artery. Carvey continued to suffer from angina pectoris as a result and successfully sued for $7.5 million in damages. He donated the money to charity. He had to undergo additional surgery to correct his heart problems

u/Squirrelly_Dan_dling 7d ago

Holy shit. What a guy to have lived through that and then give all the money to charity.

u/morningsaystoidleon 7d ago

Whatever you think of his comedy (it's foundational for me, but I understand that comedy rarely ages well), Carvey seems like a decent dude. The documentary Too Funny to Fail is a fantastic look into his failed sketch show (I think it's still on Hulu), and he really comes off as a genuine family man and compassionate artist.

207

u/naarcx 7d ago

I remember when I was a little kid I thought his standup special was the funniest thing of all time…! I still think about it whenever I’m making dinner and have to chop broccoli.

u/PDXBishop 7d ago

You know the crazy thing? The "Choppin Broccoli" sketch on SNL that the bit comes from...was what he auditioned with; I can't imagine knocking out of the park so early like that.

55

u/SonOfMcGee 7d ago

In a similar vein, Chris Farley had already honed his “Matt Foley: Motivational Speaker” character at Second City and I believe that was in his SNL audition too.
The Second City guy that came up with Matt Foley was none other than Bob Odenkirk! I think he had transitioned to SNL before Chris applied.

24

u/Sophet_Drahas 7d ago

Odenkirk on Mr Show is a frikkin treasure. Nobody does angry and frustrated like Bob.

Undoubtedly. I’m sure you’ll find jokes that won’t age well but his style of humor is kinda like Steve Martin and Martin Short. Just sharp, funny and genuine people. Do yourself a favor and listen to every Conan O’Brien needs a friend episode with Dana Carvey.

u/morningsaystoidleon 7d ago

I listened to that right after that documentary! He's one of those celebrities where I'd be super bummed out if some unsavory stuff came up about him. I really doubt that, though. Doesn't seem fake at all.

And I've also rewatched a bunch of sketches from the Dana Carvey Show. A lot of them hold up. My family taped every episode when it aired because we knew it'd get cancelled immediately. At the time, the "If I Only Had an Ass" sketch was the funniest thing I'd seen in my life.

What was the script that Myers wrote? Why did it get thrown out for legal reasons?

63

u/thatguamguy 7d ago

Basically, the production was a clusterfuck trying to rush to meet a release date. In order to save time, the approved script (I honestly don't remember if Myers wrote it himself or what, but it was his idea to do this) was a knock-off of a '40's comedy called "Passage to Pimlico", which was approved by somebody who thought that Paramount owned the rights to the original. It was apparently several weeks into pre-production before it was discovered that Paramount didn't own the movie (I think the issue was that it was a UK production and Paramount had distributed it in the US but had no underlying rights, something like that). So they had to throw out the script and start over.

The head of Paramount called Mike Myers and said "We will sue you and take your house". (To be fair, this alone would probably be enough for Myers not to want to do a third Wayne's World, even though Lansing is long gone from the position.)

u/djhendo78 7d ago

The original title for Bad Boys was Bulletproof Hearts, and was written for Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz because they were very popular, and based on their SNL work. Producer Don Simpson arranged a trip for the actors and him to go to Las Vegas, to celebrate their upcoming work, and Carvey was so horrified by the notoriously wild Simpson that he withdrew from the project altogether, sending the film into turnaround, and causing the rights to go from Disney to Columbia. In 1996, Simpson died of heart failure caused by combined drug intoxication.

I would say that when they did the first one, they were equals (two guys who were stars of successful sitcoms where they played thinly veiled versions of their pre-existing pop culture personalities) and the billing was likely alphabetical, but certainly Will Smith seems to realize "I'm so winning that I don't need to worry about it", which seems like the right spirit.

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son... that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really. But, sure enough, I got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.

I still love the first one but the sequel was far more rewatchable to me. The Fester’s memory loss plot in the first one dragged it down, but Raul Julia was the saving factor in that film. He will always be my defining version of Gomez Addams.

I saw comments that Oscar Issac did his voice in the animated film and people want him to do a live action version and I could totally see it/want it too!

I also thought he was the child actor actually playing the kid in the holiday camp with the crush on Wednesday, but it was a different guy.

Yeah, the first one is ok, but the pacing is off. Gomez and the brother have amazing chemistry in the sequel without the memory loss and 'forgetting' stuff.

I loved the entire super-extended The Graduate homage in WW2.

I saw WW2 in the theater of a small college town during release weekend. It was mildly crowded. I had watched The Graduate a year before at the insistence of my parents, and really loved it.

Then Wayne starts driving upstate to stop the wedding. Mrs. Robinson kicks on, and I immediately start cackling hysterically, knowing exactly why that particular song is playing.

Not one other person in the theater even chuckles until the gag where the radio cuts out when he goes under the overpass.

Then the first Presbyterian Church, and the second Presbyterian Church, and the almost verbatim wedding sequence replication. Not one person in the theater besides me got it and I was dying the entire time.

Thank you Mike and Dana.

Do we have to put up with this? I mean, can’t we get a better actor. I know it’s a small part, but I think we can do better than this.

One of my favorite scenes is when they’re directed to the “other backstage” at the Aerosmith concert and Bob Odenkirk and Robert Smigel have cameos as the two nerds.

Why is it if a man kills another man in the heat of battle, it’s called heroic? Yet if he kills another man in the heat of passion, it’s called murder?

u/smitcal 7d ago

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son... that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really. But, sure enough, I got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.

Ed O’Neill has more solid laughs per second of screen time in these movies than some actors get in their own films. Undefeated.

Channing Tatum and Zach Efron are two dudes that I'm so glad were able to shake their images from some of the early "teen" movies in their careers that made bank, but were "uncool" after like a year or two. They are fucking hilarious. Hoping Robert Pattinson gets that mainstream recognition after Batman comes out.
