I am by no means a teenager, but I thoroughly was
delighted that Joshua Jackson & 'NSYNC were on SNL
this week. I do watch Dawson's Creek and since their
"Bye, Bye, Bye" video have come to like 'NSYNC too. I
actually had my friends Tracy & Holly watching with me
this time, and it added to the enjoyment of it. (Holly
is a big 'NSYNC fan so it helped me enjoy them even
COLD OPENING (Darrell, Chris P., Tim & Molly):
--Brokaw, Rather, Shaw & Shannon discuss 2000
presidential race Bush vs. Gore.
--I'm not too big on politics, and I have to admit
that the only political stuff I truly pay attention to
is from SNL. Politics bore me (and seeing who is left
in the presidential race I can totally understand).
--Chris Parnell's Tom Brokaw is awesome!! "Game over
man, game over!"
--"The Boys at CNN are crapping their pants..."
--I loved when they cut over to Bernard Shaw that he
was listening to "Let's Get It On" with his red
MONOLOGUE (Joshua Jackson):
--Joshua Jackson did great--he seemed very comfortable
--I was happy to see that he was able to do his
monologue without any cast or audience member
interfering with him and I thought that the "Jason
Priestly/Color Me Badd, Kirk Cameron/Frankie Goes to
Hollywood, John Travolta/Abba & Epstein/Foghat" thing
COMMERCIAL: HAMBURGER HELPER ANTIBACTERIAL:
--Already saw it before.
REGIS INTERVIEWS REPLACEMENT FOR KATHIE LEE (Darrell,
Chris K., Tracy, Cheri, Rachel, Joshua, Ana & Jimmy):
--Darrell does a great Regis voice.
--Tracy is so funny as Star Jones. ("I'd rather work
with you 'cause you're cute like that little Lucky
--I loved Chris Kattan as the stage manager/producer.
His laugh was funny.
--Cheri is always great as Barbara.
--Rachel as Janeane--I thought her bit was funny, but
could have been closer to Janeane's voice.
--Joshua as Donny Osmond--LOVED the teeth, I thought
he was good.
--Ana as Darva--I am so sick of Darva but I thought it
was funny. Best line was when Reg said "You know
Darva, I'd like to hire you but under NY state law you
are a HOOKER!"
--Jimmy as Chris Rock--When I saw it was Jimmy I
screamed. He was so good!! He didn't look like him too
much, but he had his voice, act and mannerisms down.
He was unbelievable!! ("I ain't waking up at 7 a.m. to
fake laugh at some cruise ship stories...yeah, and
that's my FINAL ANSWER!!")
WEDDING SINGERS (Joshua & Molly, Horatio & Will):
--When I heard them announce "Wedding Singers" I
thought it might be more like the movie, but I guess I
--The funniest part of this skit was Horatio singing
"Must have been something you saaaiiiid".
--Will's "As soon as we got your check, we blew it,
HARD!" was funny too.
--It was a good concept, but was more yelling than
funny. (Although Will & Horatio's hair was hilarious!)
7 DEGREES CELSIUS & NO REFUND (Cheri & Ana, Chris P.,
Chris K., Jimmy, Horatio, Will, Joshua, & 'NSYNC)
--I love these skits!!
--Cheri "They've got me 8 degrees horny"
--Chris Kattan as Samm ("Shout out to my stylist Art
Cortez who gave me the 1st frizz-free perm I've ever
had.") That hair is too funny!
--Jimmy as Wade & Joshua as Jerry, president of his
fan club. ("When somebody else is doing a solo I'm
just, you know, bored, but then you start singing and
I see a musical Jesus or something and I just want to
follow you.") Loved Joshua's Wade shirt.
--Horatio as Sweet T (always funny) best line: "The
reason I have been struggling with some of my
choreographies is not because I maybe 34 but because
my son dropped one of those really big cans of chicken
broth on my foot."
--'NSYNC as No Refund--they totally take the cake in
this skit--they were hilarious!! I loved how they all
had a different hat (& Justin's hair net!!) and the
"like a hungry pig, snort-snort" part of "Super Size
It". Very funny!
COLLEGE GUYS & LESBIANS (Horatio, Chris P., Tim,
Jimmy, Joshua, Ana, Rachel & Cheri):
--College guys watch "If These Walls Could Talk Too"
and one comes home after it is over, so he uses his
last wish from an old Indian woman to produce 2
lesbians to watch live, only he forgets to say "hot
--This was a funny concept, but I felt it could have
been a little funnier.
--Chris Parnell was the funniest one, but I loved
everyone getting grossed out.
--Ana's line "The way the morning light catches your
whisker..." was funny (and gross) & Tim's line "This
thing is giving me a hard OFF!" was good.
--Loved Tim's Ed Grimley dance & Jimmy's butterfly
dance at the end.
WEEKEND UPDATE (Colin Quinn & Kevin Brennan):
--Colin was his usual self--I like him as anchor and
that face he makes after each joke.
--I'm not sure who Kevin Brennan is, but I thought his
whole editorial was great, especially the "I count Al
Gore's when I can't sleep at night" and the part about
how Bush doing an "excellent job at keeping the
Viet-Kong out of Dallas." I also loved his whole Vote
for Me bit & being a "applause whore".
MUSICAL GROUP: 'NSYNC SINGS "BYE, BYE, BYE":
--Like I said before, I like this song and their
dancing is really cool to watch. (usually I skip the
musical acts but I enjoyed watching them.) Loved it.
LET'S TALK BOOKS (Tim, Will, Joshua & Ana):
--Tim, Will, Joshua & Ana all get major kudos for
pulling this one off--and without a snicker amongst
--This was so funny!! My favorites were the "Holden &
Sharon Dix" and "Tiger's Revenge by Claude Balls"
DEERFIELD ACADEMY (Will, 'NSYNC, Joshua, Jimmy, Cheri,
Chris P., Darrell & fake Statler Bros):
--Wow! 'NSYNC in two skits!! They were good in this
--Cheri's hair & makeup alone is the whole skit. And
that goofy-ass smile she has on her face the whole
time is worth watching. That eyebrow!! ("Easy Trapper
John, these are all legit!!", "anycrap")
ANDY MCKAY SHORT MOVIE: NEIL ARMSTRONG--THE OHIO
YEARS (?, Horatio):
--This was a little out there, but I totally get it--I
liked the concept. The best part of the whole thing
was Armstrong talking to the moon saying "Oh you sweet
bitch, you ruined me for anything else!"
MUSICAL GUEST 'NSYNC SING "I THOUGHT SHE KNEW":
--I like these a cappella songs.
LAWNBOY SKIT: (Joshua, Ana & Will)
--I guess this falls into the last skit of the night
curse. Nothing here was funny, but they all did a
great job acting.
Overall rating: A-
This was a strong show, and I love it when they
incorporate the musical guest into the skits too.
(Anyone remember Sebastian Bach from Skid Row singing
his ABC's in a skit?) Joshua was a first-rate actor,
and I didn't notice any bad blunders on anyone's part.
Cheri as Collette Reardon was the funniest thing to
me--and 'NSYNC's "No Refund" had me loving that.
Best Impression Award: Jimmy Fallon as Chris Rock!! I
know I love this guy, but he really amazed me at Chris
Rock. He was awesome!!
