A Hilarious Look At Adam Sandler's "SNL" Career

"Adam Sandler spent five years on "Saturday Night Live", giving the show some of its most inspired characters and hilarious moments. "Saturday Night Live - The Best Of Adam Sandler" compiles 70 minutes of Sandler's funniest moments on the show.
This dvd all includes all of Sandler's most popular characters: Canteen Boy (in the controversial camping sketch with Alec Baldwin), Lucy Branw the Gap Girl, Cajun Man and of course, Opera Man (the funniest sketches on the dvd). Also, there's his hilarious "Weekend Update" costume suggestions, and the hysterical "Zagat's" sketch with Chris Fraley (I laughed so hard at this one I started to cry).
Of course, the best moments on this dvd are the songs. "The Present Song" is an underrated number that is a love letter to Santa (the joke is that Sandler's Jewish but he's writing to Santa), but it's hilarious. "Lunchlady Land" is a parody of a rock opera and Chris Farley steals the show as a bemoled lunch lady. And of course, there's the classic "Hannukkah Song". There have been three different editions of this song, but the first one is the best.
If I have any complaints, it's that they included the second "Il Cantore" sketch in the hotel. Don't get me wrong, this sketch is very funny, but the first one in the Italian restaurant is much funnier. I also wish the included a Tony Vallencourt and Audience McGee sketch. Other than that, this is an excellent look at Sandler's "SNL" career."
Omigod! It's The Best Of Adam Sandler!

"While not as versatile as Dana Carvey or Phil Hartman, Adam Sandler had his own special brand of humor that made him one of "Saturday Night Live's" must - watch comedians during the early 1990s'. Relying more on characters than impressions, he had an intense flair for physcial comedy, something few castmembers were good at.For a solid 70 minutes of laughter, this dvd can hardly be beat. All of his most popular charcters are here - "Canteen Boy" (in a rather memorable sketch with Alec Baldwin), "Cajun Man", Lucy the Gap girl and , of course "Operaman". Also, there's more than a few one - time characters who make their appearnaces. "Iraqi Pete" seems is hilarious, though has eerie echoes of what's going on in the world today. The bellboy from the "Room Service" sketch (actually, he also appeared in the "Il Cantore" sketch) is also funny. My favorite is Hank Gelfand from the "Zagat's" sketch, though Chris Farley actually does better than him here.
And of course, there's the music: "The Hanukkah Song", "Present Song" and "Lunchlady Song" (though in this one, Farley once again outshines him). Plus, there's his hilarious costume suggestions ("I'm Backwards Man").I suggest this dbd. I guarantee you'll laugh your pants off. Here's hoping tha Lorne Michaels gets his stuff together and asks Sandler to host the show again soon."
