A Kid's Review
This review is from: Saturday Night Live - Best of Jimmy Fallon (DVD)
As a fan of the older "Saturday Night Live", I never really like Jimmy Fallon. I felt he was very funny but not talented enough to share the stage with the likes of greats such as Will Ferell and Chris Kattan. But being an "SNL" completist who makes it a task to own every "SNL" dvd I can find, I bought "Saturday Night Live - The Best Of Jimmy Fallon". I decided to watch it immediately, thinking I wouldn't like it that much. Well, I was pleasantly surprised, because I know feel that is the best "best - of" yet.

This dvd captures most of the major roles from his 6 years as a cast member, including The Boston Teens (as the learning disbaled Pat Sullivan), Joey Mack from Z-105 (both of these sketches feature Ben Affleck, though I think the Boston Teens sketch with Affleck pal Matt Damon was funnier), his role as "Weekend Update" anchorman opposite Tina Fey (one of the best "Updates" ever), Nick Burns and Jarret from "Jarret's Room" (in a funny edition with Sean William Scott, though I wish they preferred the last appearance with Lindsay Lohan). Also, there's him on "Celebrity Jeopardy" doing a phenomenal Adam Sandler impression and a montage of his impressions, to name some of the highlights.

This dvd isn't perfect. For starters, "The Leather Man" really wasn't very funny (though Horatio Sanz elicited guffaws as stockboy Choo Choo). I would have replaced it with a "Top O' The Morning" sketch. Also, I remember the Bloder Brothers sketch from Jimmy's final episode being funnier than the one on here. And for that musical number with that band with Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Tracy Morgan and Chris Kattan, the Easter edition with Simon Cowell was funnier.

Still, this is an overall hilarious dvd. Probably my favorite "best - of" yet. Take my word. Buy this dvd and experience the phenomenal talent that is Jimmy Fallon.
