This pre-recorded sketch posed the following question: What if The Hobbit were split into 18 different movies? Some of the potential sequels the SNL writers came up with included The Hobbit 4: Apple Maps: An Unexpected Detour and, perhaps the most relatable: The Hobbit 11: Trying to Split a Complicated Dinner Bill. But the movies will all culminate with one epic finale: The Hobbit 19: Roadtrip, in theaters July 2028. Sure, poking fun at the sheer length of Peter Jackson’s films might not be the most original premise, but the whole team really seemed to commit to this one, churning out one of the show’s most entertaining bits.
This was a lame SNL episode. Lawrence was not funny, but maybe only because she was not in her element. The only somewhat funny bit was the starbucks commercial and some of weekend update. I think Jennifer Lawrence has a long successful career ahead of her as a comedic and dramatic actress. This SNL episode will not be one of her highlights.
I thought it was great of Lawrence to face the critics of her Golden Globes speech head on with her monologue because what better place to show that her comment was a joke than SNL.You are right about how Hader kind of stole the scene, but I think she was ok with that because she did seem pretty nervous.I nearly missed the show because I was out with the girls last night, but I we were actually able to watch it on the train ride home with my DISH Remote Access App.I love how the Sling adapter attached to my DVR can stream my recorded programs to my iPad because it really livens up those boring rides home.I am glad that I caught it because it was great to see Jennifer try out some comedy.
