God Bless America
Announcer: Stuff that happened over the summer. With Art Vandelay
Art: I'm Art Vandelay
Tina: And I'm Tina Fey. This summer thousands of hearts were
when I got married.
Art: Through out the summer many in the news media covered
Congressman Gary Condit prompting many people to say "Who cares?"
Tina: You know Art, one of the biggest surprises of the summer
that Robert Downey Jr. was not arrested for drug possession.
Art: Yes, Tina, but I'd say Mariah Carrey had enough breakdowns
both of them.
Tina: And let's not forget Anne Heche.
Art: Finally, George W. Bush vowed to solve one of America's
problems: the ending to Planet of the Apes. For stuff that happened
over the summer I'm Art Vandelay.
Tina: and I'm Tina Fey
Art: LIVE FROM MY HOUSE, IT'S MY SNL EPISODE REVIEW!
Don Pardo: Art Vandelay's Episode Review.
Starring: Art Vandelay with Tina Fey
Featuring: Reese Witherspoon/Alicia Keyes
Written by: Art Vandelay
Hi everybody. Welcome back. It's time for my little monologue
here. First, let's check the tally:
Consecutive episode reviews: 4
Ha! Watch out Jordan!
Now, I'm going to review the movies I saw this summer.
Pearl Harbor: Sucked. Special effects were good, but took advantage
of war veterans and had a dumb love story.
A.I.: Pretty good, but a weak ending.
Planet of the Apes: I hate the ending!! Burn it! It made me
stab my brain with a fork.
Rat Race: Not that funny, but I had some of the funny parts
spoiled for me.
If you want a good movie, I recommend Memento. Go rent it now!
[Cold Opening] A Tribute to Heroes.
This is one of SNL's greatest moments. No doubt about it. The mayor's
speech was excellent and I enjoyed Paul Simon's song. New York City
is the best city in the world.
Since Tina is a cast member now, I hope that means she will be in
more sketches. I just hope she doesn't have to play Ana Gasteyer's
[MONOLUGE] Reese Witherspoon
Ahhh, not really much of anything. I thought Reese spoke very well
though. If I wasn't married, I'd go out with her.
[COMMERCIAL] Preparation H
I had a hard time telling who the people in the commercial were. I
think it was Jimmy, Kattan, Dean, Seth, and Jeff. A decent
commercial. I'd say a little better then Corn Chip Nail Tip. Grrr
Now it's time for my contest. It's called "Guess the number
Saturday Night Live will air this commercial parody." E-mail me your
guess at firstname.lastname@example.org You have till 11:30 Saturday,
October 6th. You never know if they'll show it again next week. I
will announce the winner in my season finale review. I'll give you a
hint, it's aired at least once. The winner will receive Christina
[SKETCH] Wake Up Wakefield
Who was that guy who announced the sketch? I guess they fired Don Pardo.
I'd say this is the best installment of this sketch. I liked the
addition of the viewer window. I still say this sketch has potential.
[SKETCH] The Little Mermaid
Reese can sing pretty good. I wonder if this is a recurring sketch.
They take classic stories and make them dirty like last year with
"The Scarlet Letter". A couple good one liners. I didn't understand
the part at the end with the fish and the crab.
[MUSICAL GUEST] Alicia Keyes
IIIII keep on hearing this stupid song, it's true
IIIII never wanna hear it again.
[WEEKEND UPDATE] Jimmy Fallon and Mrs. Vandelay
A lot of good jokes. I liked the Mariah Carrey joke, and the Hardball
joke. The Jesse Jackson commentary was funny. Darrell really used the
hand gestures. I liked the moose hunting bit. What was with Jimmy's
Wait a minute! Who is the father of Wynona Rider's baby? And what
about Jimmy wearing glasses? Damn it!
[SKETCH] The Kulps
A good set-up, singing at a lesbian uh joining. There weren't really
any good songs this time. Booty-licious was funny.
Here we go. Reese was pretty good. Dean's impression was good, but
the voice was annoyingly high. And of course, Sean Connery. This
installment was weaker then the rest. I watched this again and paused
it on Anne's resume'. The people she slept with are pretty funny,
like Chris Kattan. Connery's final answer wasn't that funny.
[MUSICAL GUEST] Alicia Keyes
It would have been better if Alan Keys was the musical guest.
[SKETCH] Gassy Baby
This sketch was really weird. It seemed like they were making it up
as they went along.
[SKETCH] Versace for the Children
I have no idea who any of the other singers were. I'm confused.
The first half of the episode was really good. It got weak towards
the end. Reese was a good host. I wanted to see Amy Poheler and the
other new players. Next week is Seann William Scott. I hope I come up
with some good jokes by then. See you later kids!
