Of course there was an 'Argo' sketch on last night's SNL. How could you get Ben Affleck to host and not have some kind of 'Argo' sketch? However, what they came up with proved much stranger and much funnier than you'd expect. What if Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad protested 'Argo' by making a movie about the making of 'Argo'? Well, now we know!

This weekend will mark a monumental occasion for 'SNL,' not only elevating season finale host Ben Affleck into the five-timers club, but also bidding a fond farewell to veteran Bill Hader, potentially Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen as well. Less impressed with the proceedings is the controversial Kanye West, who barely manages to hid his disdain in the most recent promos for this weekend's all-new 'SNL.'

Vince Vaughn's first 'SNL' hosting gig in over a decade might have felt a bit undercooked, something we're hoping two-time host and 'The Hangover Part 3' star Zach Galifianakis will fix in his May 4 outing, but it's the rest of 'SNL's' all-star May lineup that really brings the A game. Not only will beloved former cast member Kristen Wiig return to the 'SNL' stage for her first hosting gig, but so will Ben Affleck, with musical guest Kanye West! Preview 'SNL's' all-star May inside!

'To the Wonder' Review

It should be impossible for a movie to be both enthralling and boring, but somehow 'To the Wonder' pulls it off. It contains sights -- of picturesque Oklahoma sunsets and impossibly serene European beaches -- so beautiful they awaken you to the glory of the world around us. And it also contains passages -- of Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko running and twirling through fields, and then rolling around in bed, and then fighting and screaming, and then running and twirling in that field again -- so repetitive and tiresome that they nearly lull you to sleep.

Ben Affleck was not nominated as Best Director for 'Argo' (a film that would later go on to win Best Picture at the Oscars) and lots of people thought this was a big problem. But if a former Reagan-era White House Analyst is to believed, Affleck may have an even bigger problem: being hanged for war crimes.

Terrence Malick's latest film 'To The Wonder' may have gotten a boost from this year's Oscars, as the film stars Ben Affleck, who just won best picture for 'Argo.' Will that get more people in the theaters this spring when the film opens? It seems unlikely, but we can't wait, regardless. Now there's a new trailer for the film.
