Chris Kattan was on "Saturday Night Live" for 7 years, and during those 7 years, he created an amazing string of classic characters and stinging impressions that kept millions of people around the world laughing. "The Best Of Chris Kattan" tries its best to capture all of his best moments on one disc. It misses a few, but overall it's hysterical.
Like "The Best Of Molly Shannon", this dvd focuses solely on his most popular recurring characters. And like Shannon's best - off, it's a good thing. All of the classics are here - The Roxbury Guys, Mr. Peepers (I never really liked this one to be honest), Buddy Mills, Kyle DeMarco and his brother Sean (Chris Parnell), Gay Hitler, Azrael Abyss, Suel Forrester, Eddie Lewis, Gator and, of course, Mango (I disagree with one reviewer who said the Garth Brooks sketch is the best; the one here with Jennifer Lopez is sidesplitting). Also included is a montage of his impressions, including Steve Irwin, Kid Rock, Andy Dick and his classic Al Pacino.
There are a few great moments I wished were here. For example one cold opening where Julianna Marguilees was host and Chris Kattan couldn't chew his McDonald's apple pie and wanted her to chew it for him. the outcome is gross but it was hilarious. Also, I would've loved to have seen the terrible reenactement of his "SNL" career he did on his last episode as a cast member in May of 2003. And last but not ;east, his Paul Begella and Michael Gelman impressions could've been included.
These ntpicks aside, this is a truly enjoyable and hilarious look at an amazing comic's career on the greatest variety ever to hit tv in history.
