Today, DoYouRemember presents the five worst movies based on Saturday Night Live skits.

Coneheads (1993)

More than a decade later, Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin reprise their funny TV roles of Beldar and Prymaat Conehead, aliens who land on Earth on a mission to absorb the planet’s culture and blend in as everyday Americans in spite of their odd, cone-headed appearance. Even SNL favorites Chris Farley, Adam Sandler and Phil Hartman couldn’t save this travesty.

It’s Pat (1994)

Exactly how Julia Sweeney was able to convince Hollywood that the world needed more of her annoying, androgynously challenged he/she character, Pat, is anybody’s guess. There is no way this one should’ve received a green light.

Stuart Saves His Family (1995)

Some things in life should never be messed with, and we’re appalled when confronted with such horrors as the colorizing of classic black-and-white films from Hollywood’s golden age, the introduction of the designated hitter in Major League Baseball, and practically every posthumously remixed version of any song by Notorious B.I.G. Added to that list is Blues Brothers 2000, which featured Dan Aykroyd reprising his role as Elwood Blues and teaming up with John Belushi’s brother Jim and John Goodman to embark on another “mission from God” that had moviegoers everywhere praying for a refund.

The Ladies Man (2000)

This film wasn’t just the worst SNL-based movie of all time; it could quite possibly be one of the worst movies ever made. In all fairness to Tim Meadows, his unsophisticated, smooth-talking character, Leon Phelps, made plenty of people laugh during his brief appearances on SNL, but 84 minutes of his uneven Afro, annoying lisp and Courvoisier drinking was just too much for anyone to bear.
