Before a celebrity audience, many of the former cast members and guest hosts return to perform their signature monologues and present a look back at some of the best comedy skits and musical numbers of the past two and a half decades.

Mr. Connery, why don't you pick?
Looks like this is my lucky day. I'll take The Rapists for 800.
That's Therapists! Therapists, not the Rapists.

Fun for any fan of the show. Lots of fun, actually...
This 25th reunion of SNL is extremely hilarious. Sometimes it's a bit slow and there are bits where there isn't actual comedy, but it's still fun. After growing up on this show and seeing this big reunion I feel like I'm a part of the cast. Almost everyone is here, except for Eddie Murphy. (Norm MacDonald drops in for a funny joke about that.)
EVERYONE is here. Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, et al, AND celebrities like Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Danny DeVito, Drew Barrymore, Garey Busey, et al.
I also liked the tributes to Belushi, Radner, Hartman (Lovitz starts to cry!) and even Farley.
All in all this is a solid SNL show with some surprising cameos. It's sort of interesting to see all these different talents from the show joining together, interacting and referencing each other. I enjoyed it immensely!
Now, if only they'd make a theatrical film with everyone who's ever been on the show (still alive, of course) doing skits together.
