If you are like us, then you probably thought that Lindsay Lohan’s performance on “Saturday Night Live” earlier this month was an unholy mess. She was obviously reading off of her cue cards on a good many occasions, and many of the sketches just felt like Lorne Michaels didn’t trust her enough to hand her the keys to his rather expensive car.
However, one sketch ended up standing out from the pack, even to the extent that it may be our personal favorite of the entire season so far — “The Real Housewives of Disney.” Rarely has the show taken two completely random properties, mashed them together, and ended up making them completely and utterly hilarious. We’re still trying to figure out what we like more about this sketch — Kristin Wiig’s drunk Cinderella or Nasim Pedrad’s broke Jasmine. In the midst of watching Jason Sudeikis do the same impression of Mitt Romney two million times, this felt just as relevant and a million times funnier.
Thankfully, NBC is giving us a nice little treat in allowing us to watch even more of what went down on set courtesy of some outtakes. While these aren’t particularly roll-on-the-floor funny, it was still far and away better than most of the actual show. (Plus, it’s really just nice to see Lohan enjoying what she is doing after so many months of tabloid headlines.)
We know that “SNL” isn’t going to be able to get Lohan back to play Rapunzel all the time … but is it too much to ask that we see a sequel to this at some point?
