Helen Mirren was the special guest on last night's SNL, and it was... a mixed bag, as it so often is. I guess when there's an hour and a half to fill, you let some go through that aren't as strong to fill out the time. But Mirren showed a complete lack of reserve by really going for it in her sketches, playing an old stripper, a Fox News caller and Helena Bonham Carter. These are the best and worst of the night.
Best: Helen Mirren's Breasts
Not the best digital short ever, but Mirren's breasts seem to contain the Intersect.
Worst: Mort Mort Feingold, Accountant to the Stars
I'm vaguely aware of this sketch existing prior to this episode, but I may have blocked it out. Andy Samberg's annoying character is not worthy of a repeat appearance.
Best: Perspectives Photo Studio
The place where you go to get professional penis pictures taken. A cheap laugh, but good one.
Worst: Mary Shelley
Hey, wouldn't it be funny if the author of Frankenstein based the character of the monster on her landlord, Frank Stein? Based on this sketch, no.
Best: Underground Festival: Easter
Fake commercials for the Underground Festival never, ever get old. RIP Ass Dan.
