Yet, the fact that these two actresses insist on playing characters that we have seen every time we turn on SNL can sometimes be a turn off. At times you feel like you are simply watching another skit for their show, which comes off as if though they don’t want to get out of their comfort zones. And many of these moments simply don’t fit in a movie. When you walk into a movie theatre and spend ten dollars on a ticket what you expect is to see a movie, not a series of skits; which, unfortunately, is what many parts of this movie feel like.
However, it is not difficult to forgive this given how outright hysterical the film proves to be. The humor seems fresh, new, and daring. It never seems borrowed, and isn’t afraid to just keep getting blasted at the audience restlessly. The credit can be given to Kristen Wiig (who in addition wrote the film) and the rest of the supporting cast.
