Christopher Walken has hosted "Saturday Night Live" six times. He has given the show some of its most hilarious moments, such as the Blue Oyster Cult sketch and "The Continental". Thankfully, the good people at "Saturday Night Live" decided to give Walken his own "best of" dvd. It is very funny, though there a few flaws.
The majority of the sketches ont his dvd are very funny. The best sketches are the two "Continental" bits, "Ed Glosser: Trivial Physcic" (my favorite and a parody of his role in the "The Dead Zone"), "Hardball", the Mango bit, Rita Del Vechio, the cowbell sketch, his monologue with Jimmy Fallon, "Pranksters" and the Census questioning.
The downside is there are several sketches that are not great that should have been left off. The "Centaur Interview" is amausing but not really funny. I liked the double-entendre in "Colonel Angus" but Walken doesn't appear in it until the end, and by that time the joke has run its course. The "Lifeboat" sketch is to absurd for his own good, and not a favorite. What I would have loved to see was Chris as Rainbow Head on "Attitudes" from is first episode in early 1990. And what about the first "Continental" sketch? It was, as one reviewer, pointed out, the best one.
The extras are surprisingly interested. The "Fonzie" sketch is hysterical, and the angel sketch is really entertaining as well. "The Continental" making off is a very intriguing at how this seemingly complex sketch comes into being. Overall, a very enjoyable dvd. Now when will they release "The Best Of Tom Hanks"?
