As is often the case these days, the funniest sketch on last night's episode of 'SNL' wasn't built around the guest host or a celebrity impersonation. In fact, this one doesn't even feature host Chris Rock. It does, however, feature Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney in two the lead roles, only further cementing them as the funniest guys on this show at the moment.
Last night's Chris Rock-hosted episode of 'SNL' saw a handful of sketches that seemed interested in crossing lines of good taste and/or grotesqueness, but there was only one that dealt exclusively with inserting cameras up your rear end. Enter the commercial parody for "GoProbe," the world's coolest and most exciting way to have a, uh, colonoscopy.
It's nearly impossible to be a connoisseur of modern popular culture without finding yourself listening to a Taylor Swift song every now and again. Despite your best efforts, it's easy to hear one of her songs, not realize that it's her, declare your love for it and then realize exactly what has happened. Believe it or not, this is an actual medical condition and 'SNL' and Swiftamine are here to save the day!
Chris Rock’s hosted ‘SNL’ was, well, a bit of a mess. Which all seemed even more surprising after the obviously fired up Rock’s monologue – there just seemed to be so much energy! And then there wasn’t. ‘SNL’ has been really great so far this season, so of course after the first what can be called a misfire of the season, there were all the naysayers on Twitter, lamenting how ‘SNL’ isn’t funny anymore. Oh, puh-leeze. The reason ‘SNL’ is like nothing else is that it can go wrong; it’s what makes the show interesting.
'SNL' already gave us an exciting preview of this Saturday's November opener with news that Prince would perform an eight-minute jam session set instead of the usual 2 songs, but now it's Chris Rock's turn in the spotlight. Watch the one-time 'SNL' star break the usual promo format to hit the streets with Bobby Moynihan, and maybe, just maybe, throw in a Prince cameo!
This coming weekend's 'SNL' will already be one to watch, returning Chris Rock to the stage after nearly two decades away, alongside legendary musical guest Prince. If that weren't exciting enough, the formerly known as "formerly known as" artist will also make 'SNL' history, eschewing his two performance slots for one eight-minute uninterrupted jam session. Plus, check out a Mike O'Brien digital short deleted from last week's Jim Carrey installment!
Chris Rock: Comedian, actor, and now he can add director to his resume with 'Top Five,' a film that had plenty of people talking when it premiered at this year's film festival in Toronto. Paramount wasted no time picking the film up, and it seems like the studio is wasting very little time in getting Rock's very promising directorial debut out there as quickly as possible. Judging by the first trailer, featuring a cast of incredibly funny and talented folks, this is going to be delightful.
Three of the four hosts of 'SNL''s 40th anniversary season have either been alumni or revered performers past, and the November premiere will take from both columns. Following Jim Carrey and Iggy Azalea's October 25 installment, 'SNL' alum Chris Rock will return to the 'SNL' stage for the first time since 1996, bringing along none other than Prince.
The first 'Grown Ups' had a trailer that revolved around older men urinating in a public pool. The centerpiece of the new 'Grown Ups 2' trailer is a moose that not only lets out a long fart, but bucks up and urinates on Adam Sandler. Oh boy.
'Grown Ups 2' actually exists and there are now two new posters to prove it. Despite being critically reviled, 'Grown Ups' made $162 million at the box office, making it one of Adam Sandler's highest-grossing films. Although it's hard to imagine anyone wanting a sequel (did anyone really like the first one?), the second outing of the man-children played by Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade is set to hit theaters this summer.
