4.0 out of 5 stars I Like Things That Are Greeeeeeat!!, September 23, 2007
This review is from: Saturday Night Live - Best of Alec Baldwin (DVD)
4.5 stars

This is worth it just to watch Baldwin as Tony Bennett singing I Like Things That Are Great. I've seen it a dozen times and it just keeps getting better. Baldwin gets deeper into his characters than most hosts (he is indeed a good actor), and tends to rely less on cue cards than even much of the cast, which lets him really be the character (hello, cast of snl: learn a line or two; you've only got a few dozen a week!). Best of all, Baldwin is always willing to laugh at himself and his public personas, and goes the extra mile to get the laugh most every time.

Schwetty Balls is still funny, as is Greenhilly (Jan Hooks shines here, as does Hartman, as always), and the Pesci skit has some nice bits. Not all of this dvd is great, but most of it is. Interesting that Baldwin did so many poofy characters, and they're all pretty funny. Canteen Boy is almost too much, but Sandler somehow keeps it light.

I hope Baldwin rolls with the answering machine scandal; still waiting for it to come up next time he hosts. That would be ballsy.
