5 Memorable Movies from the SNL Five-Timers Club Members

March 16, 2017

'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' on HDNET MOVIES
Steve Martin in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)


The Five-Timers Club was first mentioned on Saturday Night Live in Season 16 (1990-91) when Tom Hanks hosted for the fifth time. He whipped out a membership card and current members, Steve Martin, Elliott Gould, and Paul Simons, joined Hanks on stage. Since then, it has become quite a thing on the show, mentioned each time someone reaches the fifth hosting gig. This month on HDNET MOVIES, we will be airing a full week of movies led by Saturday Night Live cast members, concluding the week with a night devoted to movies featuring Five-Timers Club members. So, we thought it would be fun to highlight those FIVE-timer members and FIVE of their most memorable movies, AND enjoy a classic SNL clip from each as you peruse the lists. And be sure to tune in on Saturday, March 25th through Friday, March 31st for a SNL-driven line-up of hilarious films hosted by SNL alum Jim Breuer.
