I haven’t been keeping up with Saturday Night Live this season, but a flurry of SNL-related tweets last night piqued my interest. Actress Sigourney Weaver hosted last evening’s show, which featured three separate Avatar-related sketches. James Cameron even stopped by to tout his next “game-changing” film, Laser Cats 5. Whether or not you think the clips are funny, what’s undeniable is that Weaver and Cameron are both excellent sports (Plus, it was worth it just to hear Weaver, playing herself, scream “I should slap her in her bitch mouth…I’m Sigourney freaking Weaver!!!”) Clips are embedded via Hulu after the jump.

On this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, the digital short was a Twilight spin-off parody titled Firelight. What happens when a high school girl falls in love with a reanimated green jock and two worlds collide? This is probably one of the funniest Twilight parodies I’ve seen. Watch it now after the jump.

Saturday Night Live hasn’t produced a big screen movie in almost ten years (unless you somehow count Mean Girls, Hot Rod or Baby Mama, which were produced by Lorne Michaels). And probably for good reason. SNL hasn’t been relevant for nearly a decade, but in recent years has gotten a new life thanks to among other things, the addition of The Lonely Island crew.
And there was a short period of time when a Saturday Night Live movie wasn’t a bad thing. It’s hard to look beyond all the Ladies Mans, Superstars, Coneheads and Night at the Roxburys to see the one good film like Wayne’s World. And with a track record like that, should Saturday Night Live return to the motion picture business? Lorne Michaels tells The Hollywood Reporter that a feature film based on MacGruber is being considered.

Last Saturday Night—as countless unseen choppers flew overhead—a pair of maracas suddenly appeared in the capable hands of host Will Ferrell. Like magic. They gathered: Tom Hanks (on sax!), Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Peggy and fellow SNL vets like Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Norm MacDonald (!), and Artie Lange (in jeans. Wait, wth?). Not to mention, a band best known for “Longview.”
Ferrell, knee-deep in a yuppie’s faux-VietNam flashback, lead one and all in a touching rendition of Billy Joel‘s wartime classic “Goodnight Saigon.” The meaning behind the lyrics, “Yes, we would all go down together,” in terms of the show’s legacy, its cast future and past, and our shaky times is subjective. But most everyone will agree that the sketch ended the 34th season on a categorically awesome note. Ferrell was in the zone. At this point, he probably bathes there.
One request from /Film for the 35th season: Hire more guys who have to shave. At least once a week. Enough with the good private school genes already. Also, a poll pitting Ferrell’s “Goodnight Saigon” against 3o Rock‘s lame shark-ramp “Kidney, Now!”? Boo.
