Did anyone else catch Tina Fey hosting Saturday Night Live last weekend? I've watched it a few times and I am still thinking about some of the skits. I liked Tina's impersonation of Dina Lohan (especially telling considering that Tina worked with Lindsay on 2004's 'Mean Girls' so one can only imagine what of Dina's insane stagemom persona Tina must have witnessed firsthand) and her piercing rebuke of the whore that is Bombshell McGee. Tina brought a great deal of heart and sincerity to the show and her maternal influence could be felt in the sweet, if not altogether that funny, skit set at the high-school dance. I must also give props to Nasim Pedrad who is proving herself to be quite an invaluable addition to the SNL cast. The only thing that I thought was unnecessary was the rehash of Tina's iconic Sarah Palin impression during the 2008 US Presidential Election. It doesn't matter that the skit poked fun at the former governor of Alaska's idiocy; it's just a waste of time to keep bringing up her name and prolonging that lame-brained quitter's 15 minutes of fame. Oh, by the way, how cute did musical guest Justin Bieber look, even if he does look like a lost extra from 'The L Word'. Are we sure that he isn't pulling a Brandon Teena on the world of pop music?
Tina Fey's new movie 'Date Night' just opened at No.2 at the US box office and opens in the UK on April 21st...I am so there.
