The opening sketch with the press conference about Prince Charles is priceless. And what could be more demented than "Canteen Boy." Baldwin is so over-the-top in that that what is a really, really sick joke is actually funny.
But the home runs come with three of the funniest sketches of all time: The Tony Bennet Show (I was seizing during this one), The Joe Pesci Show (with Baldwin doing DeNiro) and the "Zinger" sketch, which just got funnier as it went along. Even better was the voicemail sketch where he keep re-recording his greeting, only to listen back to it and hear a gay man.
There are a couple of clunkers: "Planet Truth" was just not that funny and maybe two others didn't need to be here. Including one so-so opening monologue that probably was only included because it included Paul McCartney.
The bonus features include one great sketch that never made it on-air, and a great audio track by Baldwin and the Producer of SNL which provides lots of really, really entertaining stories about the cast and the sketches themselves.
I've only seen about 7-8 of the SNL best of's, but Alec's is by far the best of them all. There's a good reason that this is the hardest SNL DVD to find.
This collection is packed with great Baldwin moments: The hysterical cold opening of marathon gay jokes about Prince Charles; "Green Hilly", a hokey sendup of high-class drama & romance; his off-color impersonation of Tony Bennett; his wacky impersonation of the late Charles Nelson Reilly (Baldwin gets a run for his money here against Will Ferrell's weirdly funny James Lipton); the bully of a diet motivational guru; and the scandalous Canteen Boy sketch, with Baldwin as a randy scoutmaster.
The moment that I felt was so-so was the opening monologue with Baldwin tossing money to everyone backstage (THIS deserves to be in the collection?? Probably because it features Lorne Michaels & Paul McCartney at the end).
Definitely one of the best from the SNL collections!
