100 thoughts on “Film Screening – SNL

  1. Makng a funny point though, women's rights have improved a whole lot since even twenty or thirty years ago.

  2. I love how this skit ironically shows that women nowadays are bitching over practically nothing. Pay gap is a myth they aren't property. They can do anything they want and yet cry that times are hard. It's hilarious. Why is Leslie jones in this skit? He is so out of place. A skit about women in the business yet there he is, talking like he has the same experience as a woman. Is it bc he's gay? I don't get it

  3. Leslie , everyone (including kate and Cecily) is getting paid more becoz they , actually are funny, and doesn't need to scream to force people to acknowledge you are funny

    I mean count the jokes you said, and Kate said.

    Self righteous jack ass

  4. Star of Ghostbusters?
    Star? STAR?! The biggest laugh I got from this clip. What a piece of shit that movie was.

  5. I love Emma Stone and Jennifer Aniston complaining that life is unfair. It reinforces the impression that they're stupid, ignorant and crazy.

  6. Ms. Sasheer is sooo beautiful. I just wanna cook a huge meal and watch her eat. She is ALL Woman.🍖🍗🍤🍷🍹🍸🍺🍔🍲🍜 OMG She's beautiful😍😍

  7. Ross: “Ready? Turn! Turn! Turn!” 
    Chandler: “I don't think we can turn anymore!” 
    Rachel: “I just don't think it’s gonna fit.” 
    Ross: “Oh, yeah, it will. Come on! Up, up, up! Yes! Here we go! Pivot! Pivot! Pivot! Pivaat! Pivaaat!” 
    Chandler: “Shut up! Shut up! Shut UP!!”

  8. The funniest sight gag of the bit is that while Kate McKinnon is talking about how women were treated as objects with Leslie Jones, Emma Stone, and Jennifer Aniston all aghast, Jennifer Aniston is wardrobed in sexy black textured hose and positioned with her legs that go all the way to the floor prominently displayed.

  9. Snl is a sad sorry not funny show. Snl is not this crap now. Jane Curtain Bill Murray Dan Akroyd Lorraine Newman Jim Belushi Garrett Morris and Gilda Radner the best snl

  10. Oh really, women are objects? Hummmm I work in this industry and as a man we get the same thing. If you don’t have six pack abs, look like a model and are a total sex object, your totally over looked. I’ve been up against a ton of worthless, talentless actors. That have way less talent. And oh my they way more eye pleasing than I may be but who gets the roll????? It’s Hollywood for gods sake. The dip Shits that watch this stuff want boners not talent. This equality shit is just that. Shit. Jen is amazing, but don’t tell me if she looked like a sharpie in drag. That was 100lbs over weight. And had a hunch back. She’d be where she is today. Also ghostbusters was awful. Not because of the super talented women they had on screen, it was a rip off of a classic film. That was totally destroyed by lazy writers and bad directing . I’ll take things that are untrue for 500 Alex

  11. Jennifer Aniston: "women's bodies are constantly under the microscope…."

    She said that while the bottom half of her body was nekked. Jeez, I'm not sure why women are judged when they decide to show so much skin. Said noone, ever. 😒
