How many of you watched Lindsay Lohan on Saturday’s ‘SNL’? I watched it, and I thought she did a HORRIBLE job. One of my favorite lines from the reviews I’ve read came from DListed: “Yes, everybody on SNL reads cue cards, but sometimes LiLo’s eyes were glued to those things like they had the recipe for how to make crack in a crock pot written on them. On the positive, at least we know she can still read.”
Lindsay used the opening monologue to poke fun at herself. Her troubles with the law, her sobriety, even her relationship with Sam Ronson. But it didn’t come across as very funny? (Watch the video below)
Letting Lindsay Lohan host “Saturday Night Live” was a mistake. And that isn’t anything against Lohan, her well documented escapades or her hopeful recovery. The fact is she just wasn’t ready. It was apparent that the cast and the writers didn’t particularly trust her (and why should they?) since they relegated her to backup duty in pretty much every sketch.
Also, she hasn’t acted in so long that her cue card reading was really obvious. (To be fair, all hosts are told to the read the cue cards because of the last-second changes that are made, but with Lohan it became particularly distracting.) And, you know what, it’s never a good thing when the host’s lawyer has final approval over sketches. Then, during the good nights, I watched Lohan approach cast member after cast member, seeking an endorsement, but, instead, receiving what seemed to be a forced, “Oh, yeah, you were great.” Anyway, all of this culminated with a terrible vibe. And, worse, because they were playing it so safe with Lohan (on a night, I should add, that two commercial parodies were repeated from earlier this season) this was a really boring show. (Huffington Post)
Besides the pre-taped Disney ‘SNL’ short below (which was really, really funny), I thought the whole show was very dull. If Lindsay’s looking for a comeback, she really needed to memorize those cue cards. She should have gone in there – fully prepared – knowing her lines completely. All this did was prove that she still has lots to work on.
PICS: Here are some new pictures of Lindsay and her sister Ali leaving their hotel in NYC.
