Gwyneth Paltrow / Ryan Adams
November 10, 2001


Hello Hello everyone after a two show break I'm back with another review first of all id like to say that Drew Barrymore sucked whereas, John Goodman was pretty good, anyway back to Gwyneth, she did great in '99, but can she repeat her success? She'll get no help from Ryan-not-Bryan Adams. For those who don't know, he's enjoying 15 minutes of fame because he shot a video in New York before the attacks not because of talent.

[COLD OPENING] Dubya Addresses the Al Jezzera community
Will Ferrell

GOOD! I've been missing him ,given the last couple ones really sucked. Not quite as funny as the other one though

RATING: B+

[MONOLOGUE] Gwenyth Paltrow
Maya Rudolph

Wow that's kinda cool that they were friends, and I did think the maid jokes were funny. I also liked how Maya called her and told her to be proud of her for being on City of Angels. Pretty good compared to the other monologues.

RATING: B

[SKETCH] Sully and Denise
Jimmy Fallon, Rachel Dratch, Gwyneth Paltrow, Horatio Sanz, Amy Poheler, Tina Fey

Very Funny, I loved how Jimmy wrote Nomar on the back of his jacket. Very quick change for Gwyneth, but she did a good accent. Horatio, funny as ever, but then a strange woman walked on stage, one I had to look close to see who it was..TINA FEYgood for you, Tina! She needs to be in more sketches.

 

RATING: A-

[SKETCH] Gemini's Twin
Gwyneth Paltrow, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer, Dean Edwards

I really liked this sketch when it started, but I'm sorry it's getting real old, real fast, they are really running out of ideas and doing the same thing over and over. They need to just end it with like a Behind The Music parody or something.

 

RATING:C+

[SKETCH] Leslie & Ginger the whiny bitch
Ana Gasteyer, Will Ferrell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Kattan

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This hasn't been done since 1997 and I was fine with that, Why? Why? Its so stupid and Ana just annoying.

RATING:C-

[T.V. FUNHOUSE] Michael Jackson

HAHAHAHAHA! I couldn't stop laughing the whole time! I LOVE HOW he was with all of those people at the beginning like Marlon Brando. I also love how they all went to Toys R us and Michael kept saying, don't wanna have sex with you little boy, but it was really a robot. CLASSIC! I'm really starting to cherish the few cartoons there are

RATING:A

[MUSIC] Ryan Adams

He's ok but he's really just getting fame the wrong way.

RATING: B-

[WEEKEND UPDATE] With Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey

Pretty funny, I liked the Geraldo joke and I loved Horatio's cartoon drawer, I've always loved that. Chris was also funny as Bloomberg. He does real well with those type of characters.

RATING: B

[SKETCH] Dysfunctional Family Dinner
Ana Gasteyer, Will Ferrell, Amy Poheler, Gwyneth Paltrow

What's going on? Can we not do a show without repetitive characters, This wasn't funny four years ago with Sarah Michelle Gellar and it's not funny now.

RATING: C+

[SKETCH] Mango
Chris Kattan, Seth Meyers, Gwyneth Paltrow, Maya Rudolph, Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Tracy Morgan, Horatio Sanz, Matt Damon

Mango used to be a good sketch. I'm real confused. He's married, he's not gay, boobies give him the creeps, he dated Gwyneth, he loves Matt Damon, he hates Matt Damon Since this is Chris' last season the whole writing staff needs to think of one good final ending to make up for all the lame ones.

RATING: B
________________________________________________________________________
[SKETCH] Fiesta Politica
Maya Rudolph, Gwyneth Paltrow, Darrell Hammond, Tracy Morgan, Horatio Sanz

Is it just me or did this remind you of Veronica & Co? Maya is funny, but she's fast becoming the next Molly Shannon and eventually everyone will hate her. This was funny however, I was cracking up at Horatio's character and when Maya kept saying, "time to get serious" with that accent.

RATING: B+
