‘Intramural’ Trailer: ‘SNL’ Stars Give Sports Movies a Nice Kick in the Butt

intramural

Few genres are as ripe for parody as sports dramas, and the upcoming 'Intramural' looks like it'll fit the bill quite nicely. The trailer for the small sports comedy made its way online, and if the rest of the film is as weird and funny as these two-and-a-half minutes, it could be something to keep an eye on.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Anna Kendrick Sings and Sings and Sings and Sings…

scorecard

Anna Kendrick is the perfect type of ‘SNL’ host – to the point that, as a performer, she could easily be a member of the cast. (I have no idea what her sketch writing ability is like.) Kendrick blends in with the rest of the cast so easily, it allows the show to be about the sketches and not about the host. Not to mention, she’s quite talented, which allows for a lot of singing and dancing – and there was a lot of singing and dancing last night (and a lot of Disney references). This was by far the most consistent show of the season, which makes it the best show of the season (even though I'm hesitant to use the word "best"). So much, in fact, that I wish I could set today’s Scorecard to the music of ‘Treasure Planet.’

SNL hasn't been too political in recent months, but last night's cold open saw the show jump right back into current events, taking on all of the recent movement on gun control laws...or lack thereof. In true SNL fashions, both sides of the debate come out looking pretty moronic.

‘SNL’ Goes Over the Fiscal Cliff

SNL Fiscal Cliff
NBC

With the election a month behind us, 'Saturday Night Live' has to find another political subject to latch onto in the coming weeks and the Fiscal Cliff crisis certainly feels right. Last night's episode continued the 2012 tradition of opening episodes with something politically themed with a typical presidential press conference sketch, where Jay Pharoah's President Obama took the stage to address the Fiscal Cliff. Naturally, things get weird pretty quickly.
