Here’s some information that will make Pete Davidson’s working day: Netflix has created an precise “Short-Ass Movies” class in its information library, next a Saturday Night Live sketch that sang the praises of 90-minute-ish films.
On Monday, Netflix quotation-tweeted SNL‘s “Short-Ass Movies” music video (which you can check out in comprehensive underneath), adding the caption, “good idea” with a connection to the streamer’s new classification dedicated to motion pictures with affordable runtimes.

In a cruel twist, a lot of of the shorter-ass flicks named in the sketch — The Lion King, Undesirable Moms and all a few Austin Powers, for occasion — aren’t really out there to stream on Netflix. But the category does contain flicks like Stand By Me, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Zoolander, adopted by a lot more than a dozen sub-genres of other movies that wrap up nicely before the two-hour mark.
In SNL‘s sketch, Davidson, Chris Redd, musical guest Gunna and actor Simon Rex railed versus the bloated runtimes of films like When Upon a Time in America (practically four several hours!), Warmth (virtually a few!) and the newly released Robert Pattinson film The Batman, which clocks in at two hrs and 56 minutes. An exception can be made, however, for Davidson’s 2020 motion picture The King of Staten Island, which apparently “needed” all of its 137 minutes.
