Movie:
If you haven't heard, Saturday Night Live has been around for 25 long years. To celebrate NBC put on a big show, running almost three hours, that featured a look back at some of the shows great skits as well as new material featuring former cast members and hosts. Particularly funny are Bill Murray's return as a lounge singer and a Q&A with Tom Hanks & Christopher Walken. Clips are presented in 5 year intervals with many of the old favorites from John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Phil Hartman, Chris Farley and many, many more (including Joe Piscopo!) Unfortunately we're presented with snippets of skits as opposed the entire thing (for sake of time I'm sure) The overall effect is still very satisfying though and fans of the show will love the trip down memory lane.

Picture:
Trimark presents SNL in the appropriate television aspect ratio of 1.33:1 with excellent image quality. Some of the clips look better than others, obviously the older ones can't compare with the new but that's to be expected. SNL, you look mahvalous!

Sound:
There's nothing really special about the sound, but that too is to be expected since we're talking about a 25 year old tv show. The sound is good enough to enjoy the show.

Extras:
There's a ten minute segment that ran on the Today show with short clips and interviews with Lorne Michaels and various former cast members and hosts. Also a three or so minute spot from Access Hollywood covering the event and finally there's 10 minute Tim Russert interview of Lorne Michaels. All three are nice additions that add to the SNL anniversary.

Final Thoughts
I've been a fan of SNL since the seventh grade and it's great to have the anniversary episode on DVD. Hardcore fans of show should definitely snap this up, the combination of memorable retro clips and new material make this worth your while. Casual fans should try to rent before dropping your hard earned cash.
