It's really impressive that they took something so intrinsically awesome and made it lame and forced.
clarification: not lame enough to be awesome, just lame. I want my minutes back.

"sadness pile in a failure bowl"? THIS IS NOT A KFC CHICKEN BOWL!!!
I stoled the sadness pile line from someone here. Anyhow, I saw this skit and it made me sad for days and I thought I needed to share my pain with everyone here.
This is by no means the worst one either. They have a recurring skit about a checkout lady who talks funny and is a little nosy. That's the whole premise and even the studio laughter is strained, but I've seen it on at least two different occasions.
Let me clarify that: they took a character that is not funny and made her a recurring character. That's how bad things are.
That's the way things have been for 20 years.

The guy playing Chigurh was terrible.
A pretty decent Plainview, though.

Someone should syndicate the worst sketches from everyone's favorite runs of SNL
|CornOnTheCabre - 2008-03-25 |
THOSE ARE FROM MOVIES I'VE SEEN!

I really miss Mr. Bill.

This show is starting to remind me of A Hunger Artist.
|RomancingTrain - 2008-03-25 |
That line was in a popular recent movie.

So some of the hundreds of Scary Movie writers are now working for Saturday Night Live.
5 for astonishing failurecrap.

1 star for a piece of shit I couldn't sit through long enough to hear a punchline. He knew what he was getting into when he submitted it.
Punchline? ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!
When was the last time an SNL sketch had a punchline, much less a funny one?
No punchline. No humor. No discernible arc. Hopeless 'actors' going through the motions. This is the opposite of entertainment. These sketches are such listless, lifeless affairs that they literally just leave me drained and enervated. It's like vampires work for SNL and perfected a way to transmit blood-drainings in electromagnetic-wave form.
I know someone with a friend who worked on that show. Said it was the most soul crushing atmosphere ever.

oh for heaven's sake

One star for each of the years since SNL has been good.
You can't have 25 stars on one video. That's crazy. Stop trying.
|NoCode - 2008-03-25 |
I couldn't decide whether to one-star this because the skit sucks, or to five-star it because the skit sucks. So I'm going for the middle ground.
Also I wanted to add that this makes Mr. Peepers look like he height of comedy.
I support this statement.

The consolation is that two really good movies have entered the popular consciousness and will be remembered for decades as a result.
|Big Beef Burritos Supreme - 2008-03-25 |
All that effort for nothing much.
BTW: What did that guy use after the coinflip? Some sort of pneumatic animal-slaughtering device? Because no sir, I don't get it.
Do Coen brothers' movies not get out to the UK?
|coprolalia - 2008-03-25 |
I didn't read the description first when it was in the hopper, so there felt like an outside chance of some sort of punchline, maybe even a real joke.
It was like opening the box and discovering the new puppy died inside it.
|Killer Joe - 2008-03-25 |
Haven't seen either movie! That guy had a cold!
|Aubrey McFate - 2008-03-25 |
I have an irrational and abiding love for I Drink Your Milkshake. This feels like a punch in the gut.
|Corman's Inferno - 2008-03-25 |
Oh goddamn it. Even Mad TV wouldn't air this. Robert Smigel needs to take over SNL in a bloody coup.
|Hooker - 2008-03-25 |
|Jefka - 2008-03-25 |
Ditto on being unable to decide how to rate this. It's like the worst of SNL and the worst of MadTV together at last.
Fuck calling it "like a punch in the guy"... this is the cognitive equivalent of snapping a goddamn mousetrap on your dick.
Er, fuck calling it "like a punch in the gut" I mean.
|RockBolt - 2008-03-25 |
Rated for shear head splitting stupidity
|BHWW - 2008-03-25 |
That SNL wasn't cancelled years ago is a disgrace. I mean it's been pretty unfunny for years now but they often hit moments like that period in the mid-90's when a show often consisted of awkward sketch after awkward sketch airing in near total silence, broken only by fitful, strained laughter and nervous coughs from the studio audience.
If there ever was a time to figuratively bring the axe down on SNL's neck behind the woodshed, it is now.
|StanleyPain - 2008-03-26 |
This should surprise no-one. SNLs formula for the last...god...8 years? or so has been very predictable.
1. Take some recognizable pop culture reference and run it into the ground.
2. Take a celebrity and make them say silly things they would probably not say in real life, and just run with it.
3. Write and perform mediocre if not terrible skits making them "funny" by purposefully encouraging the performers to fuck up their lines or start giggling in the middle, hence the audience is dumb enough to think it's a hoot and doesn't realize how they've been taken in by a skit with no real writing behind it.
|FABIO2 - 2008-03-27 |
Christ. This isn't watching a gag fall flat on its face, it's passing a dead joke on the street on the way to work, then seeing it still there days after and wondering why no one has cleared it off yet.
Funny, I wanted to 5 star this for being a fantastic case study, but every time I went to the 5 star box the cursor moved away as if repelled by a magnet.
|Baby Finster - 2008-03-29 |
When they do the "I drink your milkshake" bit in Epic Movie II, they'll at least make sure somebody kicks Plainview in the balls at the end.
Gets +1 star for a pretty decent DDL impression, though.
|Unsung - 2008-06-16 |
4 minutes is too damn long for a stupid play on a movie catchphrase.
|Magical Man from Happy-Land - 2008-07-01 |
Its like someone stepping on your balls and not taking their foot off for 4 minutes
