Tim Allen shares an epic story about Robin Williams and Rodney Dangerfield
November 16th, 2022 under Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget, Jon Lovitz, Kelly Clarkson, Robin Williams, Tim Allen. [ Comments: none ]

Tim Allen was on The Kelly Clarkson Show today, and she asked him about a photo he shared of himself with Bob Saget, Rodney Dangerfield, Jon Lovitz, and Robin Williams. The daytime talk show host wanted to know what was going on behind the snapshot.

The Last Man Standing told her that Mork doesn’t shut up, and the Man Who Got No Respect wasn’t getting any respect. As in, Dangerfield was trying to say something but Williams wouldn’t shut up long enough to let him talk. So Allen was laughing because he was waiting for Dangerfield to have a “nervous breakdown.” Which he didn’t have. Saget wanted to go eat at the buffet. And Lovitz wanted everyone to know he was Lovitz.

So if you ever wondered what comedians do when they meet up in person, now you know. And I wish I were a fly to hear what they were saying.

Before Jon Lovitz was telling lies on Saturday Night Live, he was doing with The Groundlings. How hysterical was the 30-year-old on that 1985 episode of The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson?

Tales of a Fifth Grade Robin Hood is a fun film the whole family can enjoy together
August 27th, 2021 under Jon Lovitz, Tubi TV. [ Comments: none ]

There are so many films out there these days, but there are very few the whole family can sit and watch together. Tales of a Fifth Grade Robin Hood is just that movie. And the best part is that you can stream it at home for free on Tubi TV.

Robin Hood (Chase Brown) is a fifth-grader who loves his school. So much so, he and his friends are raising money so that they can get the supplies they need for their classrooms.

Everyone is all for it, including their teacher Ms. Tuck (Jacquelin Arroyo), but Vice Principal Prince (Jon Lovitz). He wants the money for himself so that he can bribe the school board to make him the President.

When Robin finds out about his plan, he and his friends, Maria Fox (Iliana Isabella Perez) and John Little (Jayden Scala) are going to use their wits to catch Prince in the act.

They just have to outsmart Prince and his goons, including the school’s bumbling security guard (Stephen Kramer Glickman).

Think of it like Home Alone with a lot of hijinx, but it takes place at a school. Are the bad guys smarter than a fifth grader? You will just have to watch this movie where you root for the good guys and hope they torture the bad guys as much as possible.

Lovitz plays the baddest guy, and he is so good at it. This is a role he was born to play. As a critic, I will say the star of The Critic and the movie don’t stink.

Whether you have a family or not, you are going to love this film. Because we all had that one teacher that we wish we could have busted for being the awful person that they are. Since we couldn’t, we can just imagine what it would’ve been like via Tales of a Fifth Grade Robin Hood.

Then when you are done, you can stream these back to school movies, the Monster High franchise, Zapped starring Zendaya, Karate Kid, Help I Shrunk My Teacher, Wheels on the Bus, Teen Star Academy, Jurassic School, Mr. Frog, Leo the Wildlife Ranger, and many more for free on Tubi TV.

In honor of kids finally getting back into the classroom, Tubi has teamed up with the Kids in Need Foundation, to provide vital school supplies and learning tools to under-resourced teachers and students nationwide. So not only are you watching kids go back to school, but you are helping them get the supplies they need.

Will Smith thanks Jon Lovitz for his career
January 16th, 2020 under Jon Lovitz, Will Smith. [ Comments: none ]


Did you know before Martin Lawrence and Will Smith starred in Bad Boys, the roles were supposed to go to Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz. Well, you know the rest. They Saturday Night Live dup turned it down, and the Bad Boys became a huge success launching both their careers into superstardom.

The other night at the premiere of Bad Boys for Life, Smith was finally able to do something he was wanted to do for 25 years and that is to thank Lovitz for turning down the role. Although, the comedian says that he said yes to the part. Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket.

You have to give both men credit. The Critic for having the balls to show up to a movie premiere for a role that he was really stupid to turn down. The Fresh Prince for realizing this is someone whom he owes his career to and thanking him for it.

I wonder if Lovitz and Carvey had said yes if there would have been a sequel for the movie 25 years after it came out.

BTW Michael Bay was also not attached to the film in its original incarnation. What a difference some changes can make.

BTWF roles: Jon Lovitz on The Paper Chase
January 9th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, Jon Lovitz. [ Comments: none ]


Before Jon Lovitz was a teacher in High School High, he was a student on The Paper Chase. He looks the same now as he did when he was 26 in that 1984 episode.
