Subject: Fairuza Balk's character in The Waterboy is "Vickie Vallencourt" ....Sandler likes reusing

>A Message From Tony Vallencourt: DUD
>Tony Vallencourt was actually a character Sandler
>played two times prior to this appearance on the show.
>He debuted in the game show, What's The Best Way? when
>Glenn Close hosted in season eighteen (there would be
>a game show that resembled this later on this
>episode). He made a follow-up appearance in an awful
>Christian Slater sketch with his brother, Bobby
>Vallencourt (Kevin Nealon), so go figure why Kevin did
>not appear here. He was invisible this entire season.
>Anyways, Tony Vallencourt talks about the Celtics
>playing their final game in the Garden. Basically
>stuff I did not care to hear.
>
>Monologue: 1/2*
>Bob Saget discusses Full House's cancellation before
>saying that he still has America's Funniest Home
>Videos. He gets right into it, by saying inappropriate
>body parts. With such a great personality, this should
>have been a lay-up for the writers. Four stars at
>least. Just show a home video or two and we are good.
>Nope! It is never easy with the writers. Bob insists
>that his favorite home video is not suitable for
>network television, so he describes it. It does not
>sound like it was inappropriate for television at all
>though. JUST SHOW US THE BEST DAMN VIDEOS!!!
>
>Fast Runners: DUD
>FAST.
>I mean, I got laughs over the fact that everyone was
>in their 40s, but SHEESH... THIS is how you lead off
>the show?
>
>America's Funniest Hate Videos: DUD
>The title is self explanatory and laughs were
>non-existant. I can only imagine the press the show
>would receive if this aired today.
>
>Danté: DUD
>Woah, a rare third pre-Update sketch! Chris Farley
>plays Danté, a fashion designer, who would scream and
>tell all of his assistants to leave. Except Bob Saget.
>All the characters were loud, for that matter. Not
>funny either. Part of me believes that the scene with
>Farley slamming the door on Sandler was not scripted.
>
>In a season where musical guests of the likes of Eric
>Clapton, Seal, Tom Petty and REM... there is TLC.
>Sickening.
>
>Weekend Update: **
>Best jokes were: bombing suspect photos, Marion
>Barry/crack, Kennedys(!), CrapCo(!), New Yorkers
>survey(!), The Cheap Bastard(!).
>
>Morwenna Banks has her biggest performance of very
>short SNL career, bringing her trademarked Little Girl
>character to the Update desk to absolute zero laughs
>from the audience. Maybe if she made a few more
>appearances as the Little Girl, this would have been
>better, but we will never know.
>
>Ellen Cleghorne finally takes off those damn glasses
>to give a commentary on the last episode of Full
>House. She just screams and cries, to the point Bob
>Saget had to get to the desk. For a bad crier, Ellen
>managed to make her last Update commentary one of her
>better ones. Impressive stuff.
>
>To end Update, Norm shows a clip of Howard Cosell's
>appearance hosting SNL just ten years ago. Cool stuff.
>
>Karl's Video: ***1/2
>This was a sketch when Jeff Goldblum hosted last year.
>Things are pretty damn different now. David actually
>mentioned Bob Saget in the first installment, saying
>that Bob was a frequent visitor of the store for the
>porn. No mention of that here though. Great
>continuity. Luckily, Spade's mannerisms as the store
>manager was much funnier this time around, with a ton
>of unnecessary information and all the "alright,
>alrights."
>
>Boyz II Men: ***1/2
>This was actually pretty catchy. I was expecting
>absolutely nothing from this sketch, as the singing
>sketches have been horrific this year, but this was
>alright.
>
>Where In The World Is San Diego California?: **1/2
>Another infamous sketch from this season. However, I
>did not think it was bad, minus Rockapella constantly
>butting in. Molly looked like Mary Katherine Gallagher
>and immediately knew where San Diego was. The lines
>from Chris Elliott, who played the director, saying
>that they ordered forty-six episodes and expected the
>game show to be harder was pretty funny. It is also
>worth nothing that there was a plethora of mistakes in
>this sketch. From premature camera shots of Ellen
>Cleghorne, to Morwenna Banks flubbing one of her
>lines, Rockapella missing their cue to return at the
>end of the sketch and Ellen Cleghorne and Laura
>Kightlinger both jumping the gun with their dialogue
>on one occasion as well.
>
>Daily Affirmation with Stuart Smalley: ****1/2
>This was Al's final appearance in the cast while he
>was on the show and of course he has to end with on
>Stuart Smalley! He GOES OFF on the audience for not
>watching his box office disaster, Stuart Saves the
>World (and watching Pauly Shore instead). I am not
>sure Al Franken was even trying to be Stuart Smalley
>here, because he was livid and that was super
>uncharacteristic for the usual cool, calm and relaxed
>Smalley. Al finally had enough after being passed over
>time after time again to be the Update anchor and his
>box office failure would be the final straw. He would
>leave the show after this episode. Talk about a
>farewell.
>
>Pacemaker: DUD
>David's pacemaker needs to be reset, despite lashing
>out at his employees. Adam had not done many goofy
>characters with funny voices like this all season and
>I guess everyone's shticks were played out by this
>point, because the audience was dead here. Why
>couldn't Saget appear as St. Peter?
>
>After telling TLC "good job," he seems to roll his
>eyes, shake his head and walk past them. TLC basically
>stayed in the front of the stage with each other and
>do not interact with any cast members. Mark McKinney
>looks like he wants to congratulate them, but takes a
>few steps back.
>
>Episode MVP: Al Franken.
>
>Final Thoughts:
>What could have been the last bad episode of SNL ever.
>However, the show got renewed, despite the best
>efforts of the writers with sketches such as FAST,
>America's Funniest Hate Videos and Danté. The reverse
>Courteney Cox episode.
