'SNL' Shows The Backlash Of Not Adoring 'La La Land'
Look, I loved "La La Land." But if you didn't, we can still be best friends, people of the internet.
However, there are people out there who will grill you if you didn't think it was the best musical since "Singin' In The Rain" or their daughter's middle school production of "Cats."
In a hilarious sketch for "SNL," Aziz Ansari is interrogated for not believing "La La Land" is a modern masterpiece. In the sketch, police show Aziz the following security footage as evidence.
Whoa, Aziz, whoa. You thought it "dragged in the middle?" Well...
OK, once again, I actually think the film had its flaws -- the lack of tap or advanced choreography in a lot of the numbers, the fact there were only three standout songs -- and I certainly believe people who think it's a perfect movie are a little delusional.
In fact, when Aziz confesses he didn't think the singing was amazing, this is the reaction:
I mean, I get this, but at the same time, are we really shelling out $17.50 to see "regular people" singing a filmed musical?
Of course, Cecily Strong argues she'd like to see Aziz "sing on the day" without a track.
Clearly, the "La La Land" diehards out there will make you suffer the hellfire of a thousand infernos if you're not onboard with Mia and Sebastian's love story.
When Aziz brings up the lack of black people in the movie, Cecily and Beck Bennett can only cite John Legend and the "black couple on the bridge."
After that, Aziz admits he fell asleep during that part. Naturally, Beck has one question:
The cherry on top is Kenan Thompson who enters at the end of the sketch having been arrested for not liking "Westworld."
Actually, I've got to say I'm a little disturbed by this. "WESTWORLD" WAS A PERFECT FIRST SEASON OF TELEVISION, AND I WILL FIGHT TO THE DEATH ANYONE WHO DISAGREES.
