Jimmy Kimmel Loads Up on Celebs for His Post-Oscars Sketch (VIDEO)


That's Tom Hanks as a simple-minded robotic lawyer with AIDS who was turned into grown-up by a carnival game in WWII while rescuing a Private Ryan. Oh, and he cross dresses.


No one comes more prepared for a post-Oscars show than Jimmy Kimmel, ABC's late-night talker who has made a tradition out of capping off the Academy Awards with a special live broadcast of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The highlight of Kimmel's show this year was a funny fake-movie trailer jam-packed with celebrities who spoofed the state of cinema more than Pauly Shore's career. Have a look, and try to keep track of all the famous people you see.

That was like all of Hollywood condensed into eight minutes!

I'll take Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston as the flying hot-dog vendor as my favorite, followed by Centaur Gary Oldman, Fruit of the Loom Matt Damon, and Kate Beckinsale as a sexy, Chewbacca-dumping Kate Beckinsale. Utterly ridiculous and just the way we like it.


Which cameo wins your post-Oscars Oscar?

Meh, Only mildly amusing

I thought that was pretty funny. My favourites were: Edward Norton, Helen Mirren, Tom Hanks, Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski's surprising English accent, John Goodman, and Kate Beckinsale.

Bleh. Maybe my hopes were a bit high, but this was pretty damn boring. I'm stupid and silly enough to enjoy stupid and silly humor, but this didn't do it for me.



Seeing Bateman as a baby saying "I can't go to work as a baby!" gave me a brief chuckle, but that was the only time I had any sort of laugh. My favorite cameo has to be Kate Beckinsale, just because she's so sexy.

I liked it. Not as good as the Handsome Men's club, but still pretty hilarious. I liked John Krasinski, George Clooney's legs, Snakes on a Plane, the little kid from Modern Family, Matt Damon, the dog, Danny Devitto's random snow-pirate cameo, as well as Don Cheadle's black swan, and Jimmy the incompetent janitor, of course.

Pretty lame this time. There has been a few, not many, but a few funny sketches on Kimmel. But this wasn't one of them. The Hansom Men's Club sketch in 2010 was a little funny. In that one it paid off to have many famous faces, but this one was just a mess. Except for the dog. The dog was fantastic. It completely outshone Colin Farrell.

Black Hitler was the best. I was waiting for Brad Pitt to show up in the end with George, would have been funnier.

Thanks for reminding me why I don't watch Jimmy Kimmel's show.

Ugh, you owe me 9 minutes and 17 seconds of my life back, I'll give you the 4 seconds I smiled at Gabourey as Black Hitler. But geez, that was just lame and a waste of talents because Kimmel can't write comedy to save his life. It's like Kimmel is the edgier, sassier Leno, which is to say, he sucks.

I agree. Jimmy Kimmel (and is show) is completely overrated, and I never thought he was remotely funny. The fact that so many celebrities took the time off to make this waste of space makes it even more mind boggling.

I'm quite confused after seeing the trailer. Is this movie actually going to happen or is it just for fun? If it is real I'm quite looking forward to seeing this many stars perform in one movie.

It's not an actual movie. Just a spoof.

A very bad one.
