"Saturday Night Live" would have been cr-raazy not to revisit in some form Thursday's stunning ratings success of "The Sound of Music," which appeared on the very same network, even cr-raazzzier not to deploy some classic characters from "SNL" past.
It did all that — and more — in the first six minutes of last night's Paul Rudd-hosted edition. Watch this and you will be a) Offended. b) Amused, and will even laugh. c) Offended, be amused, and will laugh. (Trifecta!)
Clearly this all came together long ago — not some quick hash-out on Friday before the show. Or maybe not. Maybe this all did come together in 24 hours. No reason why not. See if you can guess who plays who — two Long Islanders, as well. (Give up? Kate McKinnon, as Maria; Kristen Wiig, as Denise von Trapp), and Fred Armisen as Lawrence Welk.
