Yes! How scary is it that he sounds exactly like Daniel Day Lewis?

this is what SNL has degenerated into - comedians saying lines verbatim from movies, except in an ice cream parlor, and expecting people to laugh.

But it was funny, 1:29. That's why BV posted it. And BV was right.

I am glad to see that Frank TV is back on the air after the strike.

Armisen is genius.

Oh SNL. There's more to comedy than fake shows-as-sketches.... or repeating move lines verbatim, yes.

I get it. The SNL writers saw There Will Be Blood & No Country For Old Men. Hilarious! Take that, Daniel Day Lewis!

embarrassingly bad. is this what it's come to?

Armisen sucks my balls. 'Sugar' didn't sound anything like that. And when was he Mexican? No mention of it in neither book or movie.

His Gene Simmons gaze is pretty accurate and creepy, I will admit. But everything else: bleh!

...and he slides into home plate - SAFE!

Yeah Armisen sucks in this.

Javier Bardem is Spanish, not Mexican

Posted by Diamante | February 27, 2008 8:26 PM

Yeah, that's why he was doing a spanish accent.

Good lord. Armisen is the spitting image of Gene Simmons. Way to call it.

it's not technically funny but he certainly does a good impression of Daniel Plainview.

It's like the writers said shit, this sketch sucks . . . let's throw in Juno and Chigurh! A dismally lame re-contextualization.

In the movie you never get to see the "long straw" used for the "I drink your milkshake" scene. When I watched that scene I tried to imagine that straw. Just what did that straw look like? I'd like to see that straw. SNL consistently finds and exploits opportunities like this to come up with good visual gags for unanswered questions and unsatisfied curiosities left behind by other modes of entertainment. With the Anton Shigur joke we get to see what would have happened had that nice old geezer of a gas station owner had chosen to refuse the coin flip. Again, SNL comes through with the "what if" scenario. Also there's something to be said for the high quality of acting that went into the impression of D.D. Lewis. Great acting is always a pleasure to behold.

you had to watch the movies to understand how funny it was iunno i liked it :D

that was pretty bad, but he does sound just like daniel day-lewis. Havier Bardem is spanish, but his character was mexican. SNL has been horrible for years.
