Netflix creates ‘Short-Ass Movies’ category in response to ‘SNL’ sketch
Netflix has made a new search category devoted to “Short-Ass Movies” in response to a recent Saturday Night Live skit bemoaning films with lengthy running times.Pete Davidson, Gunna, Chris Redd and Simon Rex collaborated for the comedy song that lambasts films that exceed runtimes of 100 minutes as not suitable for late night viewing.Taking aim at titles such as The Batman, Amadeus, Heat and Once Upon A Time In America for their extended runtimes, Davidson says he can’t handle any more long movies because he’s “a simple man with no attention span”.Netflix responded to the video on social media this week (April 4) with the caption “Good idea,” and a link to the newly created Short-Ass Movies category, which includes selections that adhere to the SNL sketch’s call for “a really short movie, like at most an hour 40″.good idea https://t.co/PIIix3MZUK https://t.co/lyJmpuGBko— Netflix Is A Joke (@NetflixIsAJoke) April 4, 2022Davidson also jokes about the runtime of his own movie, The King Of Staten Island, which has a runtime of 2hr 17mins. “But we needed all of those minutes,” he claims.You can watch the sketch that inspired the move below, in which Davidson raps: “Three hours, 47 minutes? Bro, you must be crazy/ No thanks, I’mma watch a short-ass movie like Driving Miss Daisy.”Last weekend’s (April 2) episode of Saturday Night Live also took on the Will Smith Oscars slap in a number of sketches across the show.Host Jerrod Carmichael dissected the incident in his cold open on Saturday Night Live without directly mentioning Smith, Rock or the word “slap”.

Watch Pete Davidson and Gunna take aim at “long-ass” movies on ‘SNL’
Gunna teamed up last night (April 2) for a Saturday Night Live sketch about the unnecessary length of certain movies – watch the clip below.The pair – along with Chris Redd and Simon Rex – collaborated in a sketch titled ‘Short-Ass Movies’ about how movies that exceed runtimes of 100 minutes are not suitable for late night viewing.Taking aim at films such as The Batman, Amadeus, Heat and Once Upon A Time In America for their extended runtimes, Davidson says he can’t handle any more long movies because he’s “a simple man with no attention span”.“Night after night, there’s only one kind of movie I’m always looking for, and that’s a short-ass movie/ A really short movie, like at most an hour 40/ Gimme a short-ass movie,” Davidson raps in the sketch.Gunna, who was this week’s SNL musical guest, shares Davidson’s distaste for lengthy films, joining the sketch to list off a number of shorter features he prefers: The Lion King, Bad Moms and “all three Austin Powers” films.Elsewhere in the sketch, Davidson reveals that he “pissed himself twice” while watching The Batman because “it was longer than The Hobbit“, and Simon Rex (aka “Dirt Nasty” in the music world) celebrates the short runtime of eight Ernest movies and how “a true thing of beauty is the three-minute short before every Pixar movie”.Davidson also jokes about the runtime of his own movie, The King Of Staten Island, which has a runtime of 2hr 17mins.

Meghan Markle thanked co-star who 'turned down £53K bribe to say they slept together'
Meghan Markle reportedly thanked her former co-star for turning down an offer of £53,000 ($70,000) to say he slept with her.Actor Simon Rex, who starred alongside the Duchess of Sussex in an episode of Cuts in 2005, alleges he was offered the vast amount of money to say he spent the night with Meghan but turned it down.It was alleged that unnamed UK tabloids made him several offers to admit to the untrue claim.He even mentions that money was a worry at the time but still refused the offer, saying he would be on “food stamps” before he would lie about that.Mr Rex, who rose to fame starring in the Scary Movie franchise, said the alleged act never took place but did admit to going to dinner with Meghan as friends.Speaking to the Guardian, Mr Rex said: “I was broke as f***! I really needed the money."But I'll be on food stamps before I do that."Following his decision to not take the money, Mr Rex said he received a letter from Meghan thanking him for turning down the offer.It is unknown how Meghan found out about the offers or if Mr Rex told her himself.Mr Rex added that the letter is now framed and kept at his home in Joshua Tree, California.He added: "She said: 'It's nice to know there are still good people’.” Meanwhile, Prince Harry has said he will not return to the UK this month for the memorial service of his grandfather Prince Philip as he continues his legal battle with the Home Office over police protection.
