Wowie wow wow wow!

it should have been awful.

it was a dangerous premise, having mostly unknown actors portray legends, most of whom are still living. (belushi and all the other original snl cast, plus eugene levy, gene wilder, and more.)

these guys did faithful, believable renditions. (i.e. the gene wilder guy had the speech patterns down pat. and the belushi guy resisted the urge to play it loud and cartoonish.)

prepare to be disappointed by some of belushi and murray's behavior. to respect lorne michaels. to admire laraine newman.

but most of all, prepare to fall madly, deeply in love with gene wilder.

from everything i know, the storytelling was journalistically accurate, and despite the unhappy ending, it is not a sad movie.

it got a little surreal watching these impostors do recreations of classic snl sketches. i kept waiting to be offended or have my intelligence insulted or to get bored.

i loved it from beginning to end. i hope they rerun it so i can make everyone i know watch it.
