Pete Davidson’s ‘SNL’ skit spawns Netflix ‘short-ass movies’ category

Pete Davidson's 'SNL' skit spawns Netflix 'short-ass movies' category

It was a case of “live” imitating art.

Tired of sitting through Tinseltown’s latest endless monstrosity? Not to worry: Netflix has devised a new way to capture viewers’ attention — introducing the “Short-Ass Movies” category of movies that are 90 minutes or less.

They were inspired by last week’s “Saturday Night Live” sketch, appropriately titled “Short-Ass Movies.” In it, Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, musical guest Gunna and actor Simon Rex rapped about not watching movies for more than an hour and a half.

“I heard ‘The Batman’ was great, so I went to a theater and saw it,” Davidson, 28, rapped, referring to Matt Reeves’ nearly 3-hour-long superhero epic. “I pissed my pants off twice; He was taller than ‘The Hobbit’.”

The comedian continued, “that short-ass film, a 90-minute film,” before teasing names of films with 90-minute run times, from “Evil Dead” to “Eraserhead.”

Davidson and friends were teasing a recent trend in which movies – comic book flicks in particular – are paradoxically lengthening as the average human attention span decreases around the world.
