Great comedy which shows SNL at it's best
Okay, I'm the first one to admit, the once great SNL is now an unfunny shadow of it's formerly hilarious, topical, and talented casts. But there is one area where SNL has always shined in all of it's 25 years, and that is politics. This collection, which aired during the 2000 election, has a high point in the introduction given by George W. Bush and Al Gore, who are very funny in mocking their own media image. There are also priceless moments here that show the best of Presidential imitations that have delighted audiences over the last quarter-century. Darrell Hammond gives us his side-splitting dead-on Bill Clinton, and the late Phil Hartman is fantastic as Ronald Reagan. The first skit showcases the 2000 debates between George W. Bush (Will Ferrell) and Al Gore (Hammond) Their perfect evocations of the subjects and the hilarity that ensues perfectly capture SNL's timelessness in political matters. And Ferrell says it perfectly, when he sums up Bush's policy in one word: Stategery.
