Saturday Night Live Does Black Swan

You know that a movie is having a major cultural impact when there is a Saturday Night Live sketch about it.

Donning an over-the-top tutu, Carrey shows off his dance moves and, um, buffalo chicken wing tattoos.

The presence of the 88 1/2 year old White made SNL watchable for the first time in months. With the added support of Molly Shannon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer, SNL became a celebration of the women of SNL.

One review breaks down White’s appearance:

Most of Ms. White’s jokes boiled down to some version of her (a) saying something totally inappropriate for her age, or (b) making some kind of subtle – or blatant – sexual innuendo. But really, who cares, when so many of them worked?

I loved it. How about you? Was Betty White’s appearance on SNL everything you dreamed it would be?
