Murphy / Nelly
November 16, 2002
Just a thought before I get into
this...is Brittany Murphy anorexic?? Or... is she on drugs??
What is going on with her?? She used to
look healthy and last night, well, I don't know...she just looked
sickly thin to me! And her eyes...whoah...something is NOT right!
Anyways, on with the review...
Opening: LOVE LOVE LOVE Adam Sandler!!! I was so glad
to see the rumors were true, but confused as to why they would
do the Chanukah song so early! I guess it's to promote his new
move, "8 Crazy Nights." The kids choir was a nice touch,
and I really liked seeing Rob Schneider back again! The
new lyrics are great...but we don't want Tom Arnold back, thank
you very much!!!!!!!!!
Monologue: Once again, not a monologue....they
never are. Even though Brittany looked WAY too skinny, I loved
her pants....sincerely, I would like to get a pair myself. I
enjoyed their parody of Detroit's Rap Wars, mostly because I
love when Chris Parnell raps! I was severely disturbed that he
was wearing leather pants though...and that Jimmy Fallon was
too..although why Jimmy was wearing them was about to be revealed!
And could Jimmy and Horatio be any more white??? This was amusing,
but not a monologue...oh well.
Welcome Back, Potter!: hehehehe! I enjoyed the concept, but
I think a lot of the younger viewers might be confused as to
where this came from!
The Leather Man: why in God's name did I find this funny???
Oh yes, I was drinking a screwdriver at the time!! Watching it
now, I am bored...but wait, I'm still laughing through the boredom!!
Oh yeah, I know why, because Jimmy and Horatio screwing
up always makes me laugh...that's it!!! By the way,
I highly doubt Ms Murphy is a petite 2...she's more a 6X
in children's. I mean, come on, EAT SOMETHING!!! "I should do
what?? With my mouth??" That was good, I do admit!
Donahue: I kinda had a feeling when Darrell Hammond and
Parnell were on the actual show that he was getting material,
but this sucked after awhile!! Oh wait...that's because Donahue
is hateful in real life, so there's only so much you can do to
make him funny on SNL. Michael Moore could've been funnier, but
it somehow just sucked. It was nice to see Jeff Richards
in a sketch though.
Jarrett's Room: YEAH!! I totally guessed this was going
to be on during the commercial break!!! I love Gobe, he's
my favorite in this sketch. The turkey bong was hilarious! I
am glad they finally decided to have this on after they cut it
a few weeks ago. Although this wasn't my favorite Jarrett's Room
of all time, it was still nice to see it back...and I love Gobe!
C-Span: Um, the accents kinda sucked, but the facial
expressions were dead on!! They have the British face down pat...I
enjoyed the commentary, by Chris Parnell I believe, and the captions
on the screen...those were the only thing that made this funny.
Scott Joplin: Why Scott Joplin of all people?? This
was scary reminder of the music appreciation class I took
as an undergraduate! I hate Anna Kornikova, and I was glad to
see them make fun of her, but Brittany's legs looked so sick.
I am sorry, but she looks ill...someone needs to be looking after
her, I think. Overall, I enjoyed Maya's protrayal of Joplin,
as well as the Williams sisters...were Brittany's nip ons supposed
to be part of the sketch?? I hope so!
Nelly w/Kelly Rowland: so sick of this song...so so so so
sick of this song....sick of it.
Weekend Update: Always my favorite part of the show,
and this one did not let me down!!! Although, the Phill Collins
joke was delivered better last time and they really don't need
to repeat this one continuously...it was funny the first time,
now you're pushing it!! The best joke was the Ben Affleck/J-Lo
one..."it will be the third marriage for Lopez, the
first for Affleck, and the last for neither!!" That is completely
true. I love Drunk Girl...I don't know why, I just do!! "You know
what?!" I just think this character is hilarious. The Harry
Potter joke was classic too, for some reason, I really laughed
at it. LOVED the Richard Gere joke!!! That was just awesome!!
Oh, and the chocolate bra...but that was funny mostly because
of Jimmy's face after he said, "or with peanuts."
I also enjoyed Chris Kattan as David Gest...I don't care what
anyone says, I still like him!!
Astronaut Jones: Never been my favorite, even though
the theme song is quite catchy and I love Tracy Morgan!!! Nelly,
Tracy, and Garrett muttering was humorous, but this was predictable.
"Thank you Jesus."
Religetables: HA!!!HA!!!HA!!! I love Veggie Tales, this
was hilarious! "We'll turn the non-believers into guacomole!"
"That doesn't rhyme...whatever!" I am getting sick
of the priest jokes, but the gerkins part was funny!! I
loved the broccoli newscaster. "Armageddon outta here."
I know the audience didn't seem to enjoy it so much, but I did.
Jack Handey: "That's alls I can takes, I can't
takes no more!!" Please, someone make him stop!
Nelly #2: "It's getting overplayed in herrre...so
stop playing this song...I am getting sick of this song, I wanna
cut my ears off!!!" What the hell is up with the Phantom
of the Opera mask??? take it the fuck off dude!!
The Girl with No Gaydar: I like this sketch, but I was severely
disturbed for awhile after Chris Parnell grabbed Jimmy Fallon's
ass...there is just something wrong with that!! And it's scary
how good Jimmy is at playing a gay guy...just like in Jeffrey's...oh,
I miss that sketch!!! I love Tracy Morgan!!! Wait, is that Fred??
Where has he been all night? Dean has been in more sketches!
The hand motions during the song at the end was awesome!!!
OK, so this show fluctuated.
Some parts, I was laughing SO hard and others, I was just sitting
there feeling buzzed...or hungover, as the case may be this morning.
And, we have to wait two weeks for a new episode?? Well, that
explains why Jimmy can open for so many Strokes shows. I am looking
forward to Robert DeNiro on December 7th!!! Hopefully they will
bring back the Christmas Song!!!! "I wish it were Christmas
Until then, g'day!
