EPISODE REVIEWS


Brendan Fraser / Bjork
October 18, 1997


[OPENING] Janet Reno's Clinton Fantasy

Will Ferrell is always hilarious when he does Reno. I laughed out loud at this sketch.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

 

[MONOLOGUE] Brendan Fraser

I loved it. Brendan was very funny when he listed all the things he liked straight faced.

Rating: 10 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Xena: Warrior Princess

This sketch was kind of dumb, but it was hilarious anyway when Brendan's wig fell off and Molly Shannon couldn't control her laughter and it was contagious for Brendan. I love live shows.

Rating: 9 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Issues

I loved Brendan's character ... he was probably still laughing from Xena. He was the only good thing in this sketch.

Rating: 5 out of 10

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] Go Lords

Not so funny. I didn't laugh too much.

Rating: 3 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Crazy Lady gets Prescriptions Filled

Cheri Oteri is hilarious. I love every character she plays, especially the loony ones. Brendan was equally funny, and I liked the guy standing behind him, trying not to laugh. I like these kinds of sketches.

Rating: 10 out of 10

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Norm MacDonald

I love Norm, but this was a dumb "Update." I didn't laugh until the last joke. I did like Will Ferrell's Harry Caray, though. He does a great job at it.

Rating: 6 out of 10 (Will helped here in this score)

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Bjork

She's kind of strange, but the song was okay.

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] Brendan Fraser sings Buddy Songs

Will was funny by just sitting there with that silly grin on his face. Norm was hilarious by just shouting out his comments. Brendan was goofy.

Rating: 5 out of 10
