Why ‘Gap Girls’ Movie Spinoff Was Killed By ‘SNL’ Sketch

What happens on Saturday Night Live stays on Saturday Night Live.

David Spade recently announced that his popular, recurring ‘Gap Girls’ sketches on the long-running comedy series have been proposed for a film – although that never materialized.

The 57-year-old comedian revealed this in an episode of him “Fly to the Wall” podcast. that “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels wanted to launch a film iconic skits with Spade, Adam Sandler and the late Chris Farley.

The fan-favorite vintage sketches from the ’90s showed the three men as superficial Gap employees in various shopping malls.

Spade noted during his podcast that there wasn’t enough material to write a full screenplay for a motion picture.

“We didn’t write it,” he began. “It didn’t happen, but it was when I thought movies were very easy to come by because I was delusional.”

The Grown Ups actor said that in the mid-1990s Michaels had a deal with Paramount, which produced the 1995 Buddy flick “Tommyboy”, with Farley and Spade, followed by their 1996 comedy “Black sheep.

Michael’s next follow-up suggestion: a Gap Girls flick.

“Things [the movie] I objected to me writing it – which was probably the first one – and then I ran out of sketches, which were four minutes long,” Spade said of the Gap Girls script, which never materialized.

The Gap Girls skits were published between 1993 and 1995. Spade also recalled being inspired by Jeopardy! for a show long ago.

“I remember we have one about ‘Jeopardy!’ because ‘Gapardy’ just sounded like a weird name for a sketch, but there was no sketch [material]’ the Golden Globe-nominated actor explained. “So I say, ‘If me, Farley, and Adam are the contestants, it’ll be fun.’ “

In the end, however, Spade decided it would be foolish to write an entire “Gap Girls” movie.

“I said, ‘We can’t do a movie; I’m out. That’s it. I don’t want to wear nails,'” he recalled.
