That doesn’t mean this Key and Peele sketch about the creation of Gremlins 2 isn’t hilarious, because many of same jokes within could be applied to a lot of films that aren’t nearly as entertaining as Joe Dante’s 1990 sequel to his original 1984 film. Jordan Peele plays “the hollywood sequel doctor,” who goes from observing the Gremlins 2 writer’s room brainstorming session to taking it over and pushing things in absurd directions that will be familiar to anyone who has seen the film.
