#1

Bob Roberts (1992)
95%

#1
Adjusted Score: 98184%
Critics Consensus: Behind and in front of the camera, Tim Robbins delivers a landslide comedic victory with Bob Roberts -- a shrewdly crackling lampoon of modern politics.

Directed By: Tim Robbins

#2

Wayne's World (1992)
79%

#2
Adjusted Score: 86222%
Critics Consensus: An oddball comedy that revels in its silliness and memorable catch phrases, Wayne's World is also fondly regarded because of its endearing characters.

Directed By: Penelope Spheeris

#3
#3
Adjusted Score: 81043%

Synopsis: After his release from prison, Jake (John Belushi) reunites with his brother, Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) -- collectively known as the... [More]
Directed By: John Landis

#4

Wayne's World 2 (1993)
60%

#4

Directed By: Stephen Surjik

#5

MacGruber (2010)
48%

#5
Adjusted Score: 52784%
Critics Consensus: It too often mistakes shock value for real humor, but MacGruber is better than many SNL films -- and better than it probably should be.
Synopsis: In the decade since his fiancee was killed, an Army Ranger, Green Beret and Navy SEAL rolled into one (Will... [More]
Directed By: Jorma Taccone

#6
#6
Adjusted Score: 46800%
Critics Consensus: Braving onward without the late John Belushi, Blues Brothers 2000 gets the band back together with a spirited soundtrack, but a mission that's far less divine.
Synopsis: The now-brotherless Ellwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd) is finally out of prison, attempting to reunite the old band and find a... [More]
Directed By: John Landis

#7

Coneheads (1993)
35%

#7
Adjusted Score: 35542%
Critics Consensus: Listless, crude, and overall uninspired, Coneheads offers further evidence that stretching an SNL sketch to feature length can be tougher than narfling a garthok.

Directed By: Steve Barron

#8

Superstar (1999)

#10

The Ladies Man (2000)
11%

#10
Adjusted Score: 13087%
Critics Consensus: The Ladies Man joins the growing list of mediocre movies based on SNL skits. It just doesn't have enough material to last the length of the movie.
Synopsis: After being ejected from his job for one too many vulgar and inappropriate comments, Leon (Tim Meadows) unsuccessfully seeks employment... [More]
Directed By: Reginald Hudlin

#11
#11
Adjusted Score: 11285%

It's Pat (1994)
