EPISODE REVIEWS


Helen Hunt / Hanson
December 13, 1997


Kulp Christmas Caroling: I thought that this sketch was very unoriginal and not very funny.

GRADE: C

 

Opening Monologue: It started out very weak with everyone trying to do their best Jack Nicholson immpression. Not very funny at all. But, as you know, this season is the season of suprise guests. Having Jack Nicholson on the show was very funny doing his immpression of hiself!

GRADE: A-

 

Cookie Dough Sports Drink: This is a repeated commercial parody which I never found amusing at all.

GRADE: B-

 

Delicious Dish: Now this sketch, in my opinion, has ALWAYS been the best skecth of themm al from the day it started. But this time it was lacking its certain touch of something-I can't pinpoint it though!

GRADE: B+

 

TV FUNHOUSE: Normally I don't like FUN WITH REAL AUDIO, but this week I found it very funny and entertaining! Especially the end part when Jesus flipped through all of the stations and came up with Snoopy! It was very funny!

GRADE: A

 

The Ladies Man: Not good or Bad.

GRADE: B

 

Baseball Christmas list: I just have to say this, Chris Katan was made for this sketch. He does the best little kid impression! His face when all the baseball or even basketball players came out of his closet was hysterical! This was one of the better sketches of the nite!

GRADE: A+

 

Weekend Update: I love Norm McDonald's face expressions. That is always the best part!

GRADE: A-

 

Roxbury Guys: Normally, SNL puts there more popular sketches like the Roxbury Guys closer to the begininning of the show. I like it how they moved it to after Weekend Update though. It brought more variety and humor to the last half of the show. Tonight, it took a different approach to doing things, they actually talked in this one. Maybe to get prepared for their upcoming movie, I don't know--but it was very funny, especially have Jack Nicholson come out!

GRADE: A

 

Joan Rivers: Again, a very funny sketch after weekend Update. It was exactly what the Joan Rivers Fashion Show looks and sounds like, especially Melissa wanted ito be an actress! VERY FUNNY! I also liked the skeleton doing Joan!

GRADE: A+

 

Burt Reynolds Christmas: I have to say this, anything with Burt Reynolds is always funny (Celebrity Jeopardy). His jokes in this were VERY FUNNY!

GRADE: A+

 

ChristmaSoft/Bill Gates: Chris Katan does a MUCH MUCH MUCH better impersonation of Bill gates than Mark McKinney has ever done! This was by far the funniest sketch ALL NITE! Chris' laugh was so funny, I was on the floor laughing!!!

GRADE: A++

 

OVERALL: One of the better show's of the season. Unlike all others, the VERY FUNNY sketches were all at the end

GRADE OVERALL: A
