hahaha, Andy Samberg rocks!!
Not happy about the spider man casting.
Peter Parker WAS socially awkward, but he wasn’t an ugly midget like Tobey Maguire. He was a good-looking if not insecure kid who grew into himself. Andrew Garfield embodies that ten times more than Maguire. And yes, I’m perfectly willing to base that off a teaser trailer. T-Mag was horrible.
Some teen heartthrob like Ray Liotta or Patrick Stewart. LOL!
Before this episode of SNL I wanted to see the Spider-man movie.
Now, not so much.
I know it was a joke but even dancing around the penn state scandal was as tasteless as doing a spousal abuse joke when rhianna was the musical act a year or so ago. Though I think most if the snl performers are pretty damn funny however 90% of the writing and the decisions to put the aforementioned sketches on air is just awfule.
Samberg has jumped the perverberal shark with his digital shorts and is now officially unfunny.
Yea…the child abuse sex scandal may still be a little to fresh for jokes. I lasted through Weekend Update, and couldn’t find a reason to keep watching.
Agreed. Emma Stone was good in each skit, but the skits themselves were lame.
The majority of them were recurring situations/characters centered around predictable one-note jokes. The only recurring character that’s still entertaining is Stefon. I much prefer the SNL skits where they try something new.
Also, they really need to get someone else on Weekend Update. Seth Meyers just can’t carry it alone.
Emma Stone’s monologue was so completely awful.
The entire segment was so nails-against-a-chalkboard bad that ANY interest I had in seeing Spider-Man is completely and utterly gone. I just can’t believe that Garfield and Stone are the leads in ANY movie.
I can’t believe what I just viewed.
Just so totally, totally awful…
I agree, Tobey Maguire was perfect as Peter Parker/ Spider-Man. Andrew doesn’t seem to have the chops to replace Maguire. Not to mention this being a not needed reboot. Sony should have made it work with Rami and Maguire. Hope this movie flops for Sony
When I watched Emma and Andrew together on stage all I could see was the complete lack of chemistry; they seemed to be allergic to each other. And speaking of Andrew Garfield – the young actor who was on Gossip Girl and now Revenge is a dead ringer for him but without the emotional depth.
