The thin plot of the recently released "Unstoppable," starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine as engineers who must stop a runaway train, is admittedly a little easy to poke fun at.

But after watching this "Saturday Night Live" spoof starring Jay Pharoah as Washington and Taran Killam as Pine, we're convinced 'SNL' is just looking for any excuse to showcase Pharaoah's pitch-perfect Denzel imitation.

Inspired by true events -- Hollywoodspeak for "this has nothing to do with the actual event" -- the skit plays off the actors' nearly 30-year age difference and the absurdity of involving a group of kids as its potential target. Now we can't wait for Will Smith's latest.
