Trivia

Dana Carvey could not attend, but did record a new "Where are they now" spoof with Kevin Nealon as Hans and Franz. However, when the show ran late this sketch was cut. It was first broadcast on 16 October 1999, during an episode of SNL hosted by Heather Graham. The Hanz and Franz skit is still included on the DVD of the 25th Anniversary. See more »

Quotes

[Remembering John Belushi]
Laraine Newman: Some people think that John Belushi is this Tasmanian beast blowing through life like a hurricane.
Dan Aykroyd: And he was.
Laraine Newman: But he could be so sweet too. He once gave me this marshmallow tin and after I moved to LA, John showed up unexpectidly one night and gave me this very hard to find Johnny Taylor Blues '45 because he remembered that I loved it years ago.
Dan Aykroyd: That was mine.

Fun for any fan of the show. Lots of fun, actually...
2 March 2004 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

This 25th reunion of SNL is extremely hilarious. Sometimes it's a bit slow and there are bits where there isn't actual comedy, but it's still fun. After growing up on this show and seeing this big reunion I feel like I'm a part of the cast. Almost everyone is here, except for Eddie Murphy. (Norm MacDonald drops in for a funny joke about that.)

EVERYONE is here. Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, et al, AND celebrities like Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Danny DeVito, Drew Barrymore, Garey Busey, et al.

I also liked the tributes to Belushi, Radner, Hartman (Lovitz starts to cry!) and even Farley.

All in all this is a solid SNL show with some surprising cameos. It's sort of interesting to see all these different talents from the show joining together, interacting and referencing each other. I enjoyed it immensely!

Now, if only they'd make a theatrical film with everyone who's ever been on the show (still alive, of course) doing skits together.

4.5/5 stars.
