As we’ll see with his appearance in The Aristocrats, Saget knew how to commit to a bit—for better of for worse, he was a comedian who could go all-in. That’s how we get Farce of the Penguins: a feature-length parody the March of the Penguins documentary with an all-star cast riffing on stock footage of penguins wandering off to have sex. This is not a premise that a reasonable comedian would have committed more than five minutes to, but there’s a weird stoner magic in the way it just keeps going. I’m not damning with faint praise here—it’s genuinely impressive for its silliness, and its voice cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Applegate, Lewis Black, Harvey Fierstein, Tracy Morgan, Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Alexander, Norm Macdonald, Brie Larson, and Abe Vigoda are just a sampling of the recognizable names Saget pulled into this farce.
