  • Editorial Reviews

    Cheri Oteri breathed bracing fresh air into the seasons she appeared on Saturday Night Live, and created memorable characters both absurd and delightful. This 78-minute disc contains samples of some of her signature performances, including the preternaturally peppy cheerleader, Arianna, paired with a strapping Will Ferrell. (Ever tried to lead a cheer at the team's…swim meet? Arianna never met a challenge she couldn't conquer.) Oteri also takes on media icon Barbara Walters, satirized decades earlier by the incomparable Gilda Radner as Baba Wawa. Oteri's impersonation both pays homage to Radner's and takes it to a new level of absurdity; Oteri's Walters is a randy, name-dropping old coot who doesn't miss a beat--or an opportunity to aggrandize herself ("I was horseback riding the other day with Saddam Hussein…"). Don't miss the brief skit where Walters tries to have phone sex with a nonplussed Tom Brokaw. Other signature characters include Oteri's Judge Judy and the prescription hound Collette (appearing here in a priceless bit with John Goodman as a flummoxed pharmacist). And of course, the abusive Burger Castle counter chick Nadeen, who shoots down every customer request with a "Simma down, now!" Extras include audition and dress rehearsal footage, and an audio commentary by Oteri. --A.T. Hurley

    Product Description

    Cheri Oteri's peppy, energetic style always made her characters on SNL hilarious to watch. From physical comedy (along side Will Ferrell) as the Cheerleader, Arianna, to impressions of Barbara Walters and Judge Judy, to wacky characters like Rita Del Vecchio, Nadeen or prescription drug junkie Collette Reardon, Cheri made audiences laugh so hard they often needed time to "Simma Down." Now you can own the best of Cheri's performances on one DVD. Be sure check out the bonus features such as the audio commentary and get a first-hand account of SNL from Cheri herself, as well as a sketch from a dress rehearsal that's never been seen until now!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Ya best simmah! June 28, 2007
    This is one of my favorite SNL DVDs. I've always wondered why these DVDs weren't longer; they could easily fit twice the skits on one disc. Still, they chose Cheri's material well: Nadeen's "simmah" skit with Tobey Maguire, Collette's prescription chase with John Goodman, Cheri's horny wife to Chris Kattan's horny husband with Sarah Michelle Gellar, and the classic Mrs. Delvecchio skit with Christopher Walken...not to mention 2 awesome cheerleader sketches. All of these characters had other great skits as well (the horny husband and wife buying a car from Ben Affleck was priceless) but this is a solid 80 minutes of comedy for a great price. Pick one up - you won't be sorry.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Simma Down Nah! November 17, 2006
    Taco! Burrito! What's that under your Speedo?

    I love Cheri Oteri's characters! She was always someone I looked forward to seeing on SNL during her era on the show, and I was very sad when she left. I was so excited to see this at the video store last week, I picked it up without hesitation. Her Barbara Walters bits are great, and of course Arianna is great, too. My favorite is still Nadine, though. I can't help but laugh every time I see the Burger Castle skit. I hope they put the other Nadine skits on another dvd along with other classic Cheri performances. Everyone needs to go out and get this one today!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! Hoping for a Best of Part 2!!!! May 24, 2006
    By RSR
    Good stuff for any Cheri Oteri fan. I personally think that Cheri's talents were very underated and I'm glad they finally released this dvd. One thing I wish they included in this best of dvd was the "Robin Bird Show" where she played a has been porn star with a talk show. It was pretty over the top. Maybe they will release a part II dvd. There are still so much other matieral that she has done so I don't see why they couldn't! Highly recommended and you won't be sorry you purchased this dvd.

    5.0 out of 5 stars CHERI IS THE CHERRY OF SNL!! July 7, 2006
    I have waited so long for this DVD to finally come out!!!! I was amazed at all the "MALE" best ofs and virtually none of the females being recognized as some of the top comics of SNL. This is a genuinely super DVD!! I laughed all the way through - get it - this one's a keeper!!!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Cheri is a genius! July 30, 2006
    If you want a good belly laugh, just watch this dvd. It is good medicine for the soul! The Simma character gets funnier and funnier every time you see it. Leg up is priceless. She is a true comic original with talent that is greatly missed. Where are you Cheri? I hope there is more to come!

    5.0 out of 5 stars the best thing that ever happened to SNL! June 15, 2006
    By Hello
    I love Cheri Oteri. She is the best thing that SNL had! I am sad that she is not on the show anymore, if you seen the show in the last few years you no what I am talking about. The best years was from when Molly, Will and Cheri Oteri were on the show, I miss those years. If you read this thing Cheri Oteri make more movies or do a TV show. I speak for lots of people! We WANT TO SEE MORE OF YOU! WE LOVE YOU! And there better be a Part 2 DVD. You would need 10 best of DVD's b/c everything this girl has done was just the best. Pick this DVD up! and Cheri Oteri we miss you and love you :*(

    4.0 out of 5 stars She is amazing but what's with the montages? June 15, 2006
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    The 4-star rating is no reflection on Ms. Oteri herself, who was always my favorite cast member. She is amazing and can make anything hysterical, in my opinion. And the DVD does have its strong points; namely, the "lost" Morning Latte sketch and the audition footage. But why the Barbara Walters/Cheerleaders montages? I would have rather seen ONE entire BW/View sketch rather than 10 seconds of all of them. Surely they could have fit some of these on instead of, maybe, the full length airplane sketch with Chevy Chase, who seems to get more laughs (why?) while being woefully unfunny. The commentary is great - for the most part it's stuff the average SNL fan would want to hear. Cheri comes across as very genuine in person, which I kind of knew already. Naturally funny, talented and intelligent! What more could you ask for?
