Despite the purported legal vetting of this week’s SNL skits, the writers were keen to make fun of host Lindsay Lohan’s legal and criminal troubles as she played a jailbird and a princess fallen from grace. Here are the five best Saturday Night Live skits
Plot: It’s the quintessential childhood fantasy – turned into a nightmare. The Disney princesses get a reality-TV makeover, and the ideals of beauty and wealth come crashing down in a heap of cattiness and booze. Belle, Jasmine, Ariel and others learn the hard way that even fairy tales have their real-world drama. Lindsay Lohan crafts a praiseworthy Rapunzel, in a performance that harks back to Mean Girls, but Taran Killam’s flamboyant Prince Charming is the shining star.
Best Line: “Jasmine and Aladdin are broke. They used up all their wishes. I heard he spent the last one on a lap dance.”
