Jim Carrey‘s physical comedy is unbeatable, and with the upcoming release of “Dumb and Dumber To,” the sequel to the original 1994 hit, he’s back in the spotlight. Hosting this season’s Halloween episode on “Saturday Night Live,” Carrey set out to get a little spooky, do some celebrity impressions, and reunite his favorite movie characters. Here’s how the episode went down:
All In The Carrey Family
Carrey stars as himself at a family reunion, where his relatives and the “SNL” players get to show off their own Jim Carrey impressions. Taran Killam is up first, pulling off the signature facial moves and signature “Alrighty Then” line. Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Vanessa Bayer, Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah follow, giving nods to Carrey’s classic films “Ace Ventura,” “The Cable Guy” and “The Mask.” But it wouldn’t be complete without a cameo from Jeff Daniels, who comes on as “Uncle Lloyd” and makes the most annoying sound in the world.
Alright Alright Alright
The comedian pokes fun of Matthew McConaughey’s latest car commercials, pulling out his long drawl and contemplative thoughts. “Sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward. And I don’t mean go back and reminisce, or chase ghosts, I mean take a big step back. Like go from winning an Oscar to doing a car commercial.” Unrelated to the episode, but Kate Hudson also offered her own McConaughey impression recently, and it’s equally dead-on.
