Saturday Night Live has been a launching pad for comedians' film careers for decades, and this week we're bringing you a host of movies filled with these former sketch-comedy alumni — live, from Hollywood. Will Ferrell plays an IRS auditor faced with an existential crisis (and a narrator only he can hear) in Stranger Than Fiction — the best Ferrell movie you've probably never seen. The late Chris Farley displays his genius knack for dimwitted-timing and pratfall comedy in Beverly Hills Ninja. And watching Bill Murray's misfit Pvt. Winger in the military spoof Stripes is a rite of passage for every slacker-comedy lover.
No need to wait up for the laughs, Crackle's on 24/7.
