Derek Jeter / Bubba Sparxxx, Shakira
December 1, 2001


hey, i am kelsey and i decided to start doing episode reviews because i didnt exactly agree with the way SOME people rated skits. i dont comment on musical performances because i rate the skits when i re-watch them on my tape. i usually dont tape the performances so i dont know when in the show they take place. also, sorry if the way i rate my skits are a lot higher than some of the ways you would. i just luv SNL so much its really hard for me to hate a skit. anyway, here we go...

~OPENING SKETCH~
ashcroft is talking to the american people about what a terrorist might be like but starts sounding like jeff foxworth stand-up. bush comes in and joins in with the joking. this was a very clever idea
RATING: A

~MONOLOGUE~
jeter hits baseballs into the crowd injuring audience members. no climax really
RATING: C

~PREPARATION H~
same commercial as reese witherspoon episode
RATING: C+

~MASSAGE~
kattan cries while massaging jeter. turns out he was just having a fantasy.
RATING: C

~YANKEES WIVES~
wives of yankees players sit in stands making sure no girls hit on their husbands. highlights: jeter (dressed as a woman) says about derek jeter "he looks like the rock had sex with a muppet". also, two more players (sorry for not knowing their names) come out dressed as girls, they both start acting slutty
RATING: B

~DISSING YOUR DOG~
ferrell talks about his dog traing video "dissing your dog" very very funny
RATING: A

~DEREK JETER'S TACO HOLE~
derek jeter and others sing about his new mexican restaurant. BARELY any real jokes. (is it just me or does derek jeter look like a buff, tan lance bass?
RATING: D

~DEALING WITH MOM AND DAD~
kattan, a young boy named patrick, complains about screwing up at a baseball game. ferrell, the dad, asks jeter to give patrick baseball tips. jeter says patrick sucks so he teaches him to fight the kids and beat them with baseball bats. pretty funny-jimmy talks jibberish "ga ga ga!"
RATING: B+/A-

~WEEKEND UPDATE~
extremely funny AGAIN! wowsers, these guys are on a roll this season! keep it up! although there was a very disturbing graphic of al roker naked-im scarred for life. oh, and charrolett church is a MORON! good way to get jimmy to go to ny museums, "sorry we yelled at you for touching stuff, jimmy fallon!" there was a great point-counter point segment w/ jeter and seth. seth's point: derek jeter sucks! jeters: no i dont! there was a very nice little dedication thing to george harrison, too
RATING: A+

~OSSAMA PEP TALK~
ferrell, as osasma bin laden, tries to give taliban fighters a pep talk. horatio interferes and osama loses support of the members. jimmy keeps asking questions that make ossama look bad. he goes crazy again and says some more jibberish. ossama tries to say that living in caves is cool because batman does. gives taliban members a boot-legged copy of harry potter
RATING: A

~PERM~
jeter comes in with a curly perm- justin timberlake style. others discuss it behind his back. highlights: ferrell calls jeter's hair a "hair-DONT" ana, maya, and horatio snap at him saying "HEY dont say 'hair-dont!" "yeah, saying 'hair-dont' is as bad as having hair like that! dont ever say 'hair-dont' AGAIN!" ends with jeter saying how perms are going to come back in style. magazine flashes to screen saying 'perms not back in style' he says to wait longer. magazine flashes to screen reading 'perms are never coming back' he finally gives up and magazine flashes to screen saying 'perms back in style' and showing a pic of brad pitt w/ jennifer anniston with perms.
RATING: C+

~SEASONS GREETINGS FROM SNL~
i absolutely LOVE this skit!! their sweaters were so cool, i wonder where i could buy one....... horatio mixes up the song going crazy w/ the ukilaile (i have no idea how to spell that) tracy was barely in the show but he sure flaunted his awesome dance moves!
RATING: A

~MY BIG THICK NOVEL~
i love this too! the kids in the pics looks so crazy-im gonna have nightmares!
RATING: A

overall this show was great!! excuse me if i call every episode great, but this episode exceeded my expectations by far! i cant wait until next week!
OVERALL RATING: A+
