Saturday Night Live fans will revel in this admiring overview of the late-night NBC-TV comedy show’s forty-year (so far) run. SNL’s founder and executive producer Lorne Michaels chips in with anecdotes and observations, alongside a phalanx of former cast members, guest hosts, musical guests, and satiric targets: Chevy Chase, Amy Poehler, Dana Carvey, Leslie Jones, Garrett Morris, Paul Simon, John Goodman, Tom Brokaw, Dana Carvey, Chris Rock, Tina Fey, Al Franken, Alec Baldwin, et al. The show’s improv/sketch roots are emphasized, too. Much more fun than most Boomer-nostalgia docs. Directed by Bao Nguyen (81 min.).
