Zero times, right? You’ve had that thought zero times, because Goodfellas is a horrible choice for a musical, for a lot of reasons. However, all those same reasons are what made it just perfect for The Late Late Show with James Corden‘s segment, “Inappropriate Musicals.”
Corden was joined by Martin Short in an extended and impressive segment to create upbeat song and dance numbers of iconic scenes from Goodfellas, The Revenant, and Gladiator, none of which had any relation in tone or mood to the original films.
For The Revenant, Corden played the bear, who instead of attacking Short, joined him in a dance number that brought the two close together, but in a much different way than Leo experienced.
Finally, “Are you not entertained?” became the basis for a feel good song about the value of entertainment these days. Short and Corden were joined by Will Arnett as Commodus, who caved in to the chorus’s pleas to let Corden live.
Needless to say, we were, in fact, entertained. Although, we are definitely going to have “Are you not entertained?” stuck in our head for the rest of the day.
