Vardalos / Eve
November 9, 2002
hello again everyone.
well as it turns
out i did review the november 9th SNL. i'm glad i watched it,
cause i have almost nothing but good things to say about it.
nia vardalos was a great host.
what's new with
me you ask? well, i got a job. i won't tell you where but it's
a store, a great store. i also broke my discman, but it turns
out that'll it'll be ok cause aparently i have INSURANCE! let's
hear it for insurance! ok, on to my review.
Nia will be a good host, eve will be a good MG, i predict it
will be a 8-9/10 show. i'm positive they'll do something about
greek people. maybe a big, fat greek party sketch. i still haven't
seen that movie. eventually.
1 being worst, 10 being best
1. OPENING -
this was alright. i still like will's bush better though. "hang
on... no that's right!" good line. better then last week's
- NIA VARDALOS
this was a good monologue. i loved nia's "me and tina, we're
like cousins now" or whatever it was she said. then TINA
CAME OUT! as did her mom, and cousins, and family friends...
i knew it! a big fat greek party... so anyway, they all gave
nia food and someone told tina she was too skinny and stuck some
food in her mouth. "i get married?! ah, we dance!"
chris kattan as good in there too. loved the dancing circle.
- SWIFFER SLEEPERS
what an interesting idea. don't know if they would catch on though...
who would use their baby to clean the ceiling? eh this was alright.
4. SUSHI RESTAURANT
- NIA, JIMMY, CHRIS P., FRED
this was alright. it had some good lines, but at times nia wasn't
too convincing. jimmy and chris' jokes were so bad they were
good. "hope they have a poo-poo platter cause i have a shitake."
5. CBS SPECIAL
REPORT - DARRELL, SETH, JIMMY, MAYA, NIA
this was a great sketch! the nerds were great, darrell's dan
rather was great, overall funny! "it was a tough week for
sluts." LOL. damn,those nerds though, they were a great
little group. "the nerds have spoken, and they have spoken
6. NEXT WEEK
- BRITTANY MURPHY/NELLY
well i only remember brittany from clueless, i haven't seen any
of her other movies. i'll see 8-mile on tuesday night, i'm hearing
it's excellent. nelly is alright too, i like alot of his songs.
we'll see next week.
7. LA FEMME DAY
SPA - NIA, RACHEL
omg, this sketch killed me. i didn't stop laughing! "you
have children? no, why?" hahahahahahaha i hope this sketch
repeats. "you ask your mother, she will tell you you are
8. MUSICAL GUEST
singing 'gangsta lovin'. this is a good song, not the same without
alicia keys though. were eve's shins cold? that's the only explanation
i can think of for those hideous boots she had on.
9. WEEKEND UPDATE
- JIMMY, TINA
this part is always the best. tonight did not disappoint. jimmy's
winona joke was hilarious, as was tina's bobby brown joke- "he's
still got it!" damn i cannot believe whitney houston and
bobby brown have lasted like 10 years. they seem like to type
to divorce after 2 weeks. anyway, tina's red lobster joke was
hilarious- "finally, just like old days, you can go to times
square and get crabs. let's hear it for crabs!" oh and that
walking machine thing was great too. tina and jimmy's walking...
LOL. seth meyers is funny, i like his WU bits.
10. TURKISH STATE
TV - HORATIO, DARRELL, NIA
ok, i hate horatio. he's just not funny. but nia's unibrow was
funny. it was an ok sketch, i didn't really laugh much.
11. THE FALCONER
- WILL F., CHRIS K., FRED, NIA
ok this new guys must have invented this, cause it wasn't funny
and neither are they. a falcon eats at a fancy restaurant and
sleeps with nia. eh. not great.
- PIER 1 IMPORTS
hahaha this made me laugh. kirstie alley scares me. her eyebrows
man... anyway, her commercials irritate me and i'm glad they
made fun of her. "only you can protect yourself from kirstie
13. MISSY ELLIOTT
WORKOUT VIDEO - TRACY, NIA, EVE
this was alright. made me laugh sometimes. but missy looks great
in her new video! rachel's bit was funny. and there was an eve
cameo! cool. i also like this song, 'work it'.
14. MUSICAL GUEST
this is a cool song, 'satisfaction'. i like it. i also liked
the sweater eve was wearing.
AT LAW - MAYA, NIA, RACHEL
oh, i hate those stupid lawyer commercials but i do like this
sketch. maya is hilarious... it was a pretty good sketch. "cyborgs"
ACCENTS - HORATIO, TRACY, CHRIS K., NIA
eh, kinda boring. horation stinks up every sketch he's in! this
wasn't a great sketch... no memorable lines.
so all in all,
not a bad show... nia was a good host, next time she comes back
they need to write better sketches for her... like pretty living,
or something like that. anyway i gotta go but maybe i'll be back
next week to review brittany murphy and nelly. we'll see. good
night and have a pleasant tomorrow.
