    hope its good

    by Ogmios_the_Eloquent

    can de niro still delivers? survey says: sure hope so...

  • Dec. 4, 2010, 2:34 a.m. CST

    Is this show still on?

    by smackfu

    Sorry Herc, but technically the first person to say this is 'first' in an SNL threat. Foiled again!

    Fuck yeah! Forget DeNiro :P

    I hope tonight's good, but...

    by Shermdawg

    I'm expecting it to be awkward. Would rather have Stiller to be honest.

    Saturday's 1st New SNL Since Nov. 20!! 2009?

    by art123guy

    See, if it was the first episode since Nov. 20, 2009, then it would deserve 2 explanation points. But since yer talking 2010, not really.

    I Thought MacGruber Was Incredibly Hilarious

    by Crow3711

    I expected to hate it, and I honestly could not stop laughing. I pimp that movie to anyone who will listen. Those two scenes...holy shit...I couldn't breathe

  • Dec. 4, 2010, 10:32 a.m. CST


    by adml_shake

    For me was hit or miss. And it missed a lot more than it hit. The only parts I found that funny had Kristen Wiig in them. And I didn't think the Celery gag was all that funny. Though I do agree with the bad guys, if I saw that I would probably be "WTF" too.

  • Dec. 4, 2010, 11:50 a.m. CST

    Huge SNL fan, but Macgruber bored me

    by theBigE

    It just didn't work for me. Some funny moments, still put me to sleep in the middle.

    It was a shame that Forte was fired over Macgruber's box office

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    this season is really lacking because of his loss. If Macgrubs had been a hit Forte would still be on the show and there wouldn't be all this blame game going on between forte and the studio. At least Will is getting some solid work through 30 rock and conan

    Diddy Dirty Dumbfuck.

    by Cheif Brody

    Sean...Nobody cares how many times you change yer stupid goddamn name. <p> Here's an idea... Just call yourself "Sean Combs"...and hire a bunch of "NO" men who will STOP you from changing yer name again, you talentless hack. <p> It would also help if these "NO" men could sing for you, write ORIGINAL songs for you, dance well and legitimately rap for you. <p> Hey...I suddenly feel like Lois Griffin trying to explain to Peter that being the "Producer" of The King and I would better suit his "creative talents"...than him being the director...or STAR of the play. <p> Oh, well. This is why God created the "Mute" button on my remote. DeNiro will fucking kill it tonight.

  • Dec. 4, 2010, 2:29 p.m. CST

    Big Jim...You are not alone.

    by Cheif Brody

    Been having the same wieird shit happening to me the past two days accessing AICN. It wouldn't load in IE or Firefox for me yesterday. Now it's taking a long time for threads to load and ya get this squished problem, etc. <p> I think it's Disney execs trying to shut down this site down before Massa and Capone can dutifully rape TR2N a new asshole with their reviews.

    MacGruber is very underrated

    by UTexLex

    Watched it again yesterday for the first time since theaters.. I think the best laugh is MacGruber's notebook that's full of his stalkerish scribblings about the license plate and the final drawings...MacGruber actually does a really good job of planting comic seeds throughout the film and returning to them later for payoff (vs one-time gags): * The aforementioned license plate gag * Celery gag * "I'm going to rip off your dick and shove it in your mouth" only to be foiled

    "Bobby moynahan is fucking great"

    by smackfu

    Bobby Moynahan is by far the worst player on SNL, possibly of all time. I'm sure there might have been someone worse during that Robert Downey/Anthony Michael Hall period, but I'd be surprised. When he plays teenagers or children on this show, it's akin to going full retard. It's fucking cringeworthy. Watching an old white man trying to rap is less uncomfortable than watching him do that.

  • Dec. 5, 2010, 3:03 a.m. CST

    I also loved MacGruber

    by smackfu

    just saw it last week, and it was way better than I expected. I loved the little things, like the crazy notebook, and him carrying his car stereo everywhere he went. And that disturbingly awkward sex scene had me in tears.

    Polack joke Seth? Really?

    by Kaczmar1984

    I usually treat Weekend Update as the go-to part of the show for the funny stuff but I'm not sure about the Polack joke...maybe because I'm Polish myself. It's not that I take myself too seriously cuz I will laugh at a good Polack joke any time of the day but it just seems like SNL can do better. Even part of the audience boo-ed it a bit. Other than that, I actually quite liked the episode. The most annoying sketch ever (WUWT) was saved by DeNiro and Williams, great cameo by Stiller and others were pretty funny as well. DeNiro seemed tense at times but he got out of that I think. Also here's a clue for Lorne and Seth: if you don't overuse Wiig she stops being annoying and reminds us that she is actually very talented and can be hilarious. Still, my favorite ep of the season is the Anne Hathaway one.

    From Paul McCartney to Emin-fucking-em?

    by Fa_Tass_DinoMolester

    How do you from a former Beatle to the death of the music industry personified? WHAAAAATTTT?!?!?! <p> Can't we get Jeff Bridges and Paul McCartney on the same show, for the sane people, and the cartoon characters can watch the episode with Paul Rudd and Eminem? <p> BTW, as opposed to most "badass" intense actors, DeNiro actually seems to have a pretty good sense of humor. He was hilarious in "Meet the Parents" and "Analyze This"...wish he'd do more comedy.

    by BurnHollywood

    ...Though once again, I'm wondering why the hell they sized up the cast, if they can't put Abbie to good use more than once an episode. Need more Nasim, too. The Update visit by the Kardashians, dancing Boba Fett and the "Who have I gotta screw?" skit were the high points.
