Trivia

Dana Carvey could not attend, but did record a new "Where are they now" spoof with Kevin Nealon as Hans and Franz. However, when the show ran late this sketch was cut. It was first broadcast on 16 October 1999, during an episode of SNL hosted by Heather Graham. The Hanz and Franz skit is still included on the DVD of the 25th Anniversary. See more »

Quotes

[Remembering Chris Farley]
David Spade: Anyone understand why I'm the only one getting paid tonight? Okay, there was some confusion. It's good to be here tonight, we've got Tom Hanks, Michael Douglas in the audience. Don't these TV people give you the creeps? I feel uneasy. Actually I'm here to talk about Chris. I did two movies with Chris Farley. A funny one called Tommy Boy and another one called Black Sheep. And not only was Chris funny but he was also business-savy, like when Black Sheep came out, we ...

Fun for any fan of the show. Lots of fun, actually...
2 March 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

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.

4.5/5 stars.
