    Love every time in the actual trial when Johnny Depp makes a point of calling out the lawyer “ yes, Mr. Rottenborn.”

    • Karma Per Diem
      Karma Per Diem

      Best part is how Johnny consistently pauses between ‘Rotten’ and ‘Born’!

    • wildmercuryfilms

      @Marianna Agh ALMOST????!!!! It’s obviously intended to be an insult.

    • Marianna Agh

      Yeah, it almost sounds like an insult 😂😂😂😂😂

    The fact that the “Real” trial is funnier then this skit is hilarious.

      SNL was like, how do we make this funny when it's already funny and decided they would go with not funny. Some writer somewhere was like we could have them find the poop, and then the other writer was like yeah, but should we actually make it funny? And the first writer says, not so funny but more of a funny-esque, we're talking about poop so that will work, we'll get that guy Keenan to be the one who comes in and over reacts to it too because he's silly. Funny-esque.

      Ewww. I usually enjoy these and even said during the trial "They should do an SNL skit on that!" several times. How did they miss the one where attorney objected to HIMSELF? Or the insane quantity of times they objected to a response from johnny depp, before he even said one word? The front desk dude driving away, the fake crying, lmfao.

    • Westerling

      @Lukecucaracha they fired Norm

    • They Call Me Gator
      They Call Me Gator

      Completely agree. It could've been so much better.

    • Lukecucaracha

      What don’t they drop the ball on now. SNL hasn’t been funny in a long time.

    The real satire is how they portrayed Amber's lawyer as the competent one 😂

      @Himaryous not sure I would call Amica cream and Consistently saying the wrong name good.Her opening will come back to bite her client right in the ass like the Bee that got stepped on. It came off like a gossip girls session all over the place wirh a bunch of untrue claims. Milani already coming out about the makeup they claimed she used. They just didnt seem to research and its making them look so bad

    • B-Dub

      @Caroline Daykin No, but it’s a person’s reputation, career, & livelihood on the line (JD), & anything about sexual assault is handled carefully in Hollywood. If they made fun of AH & she was really violently raped, it would come back to haunt them. I doubt they will see that, but you never know. Plus, people are so sensitive & easily offended these days. It may be entertaining, but these are peoples’ lives - especially JD.

    • Caroline Daykin

      @B-Dub It's not a criminal trial...

      how good are you at your job, Bri ?

  • Lee

    Man...they completely missed the mark on the lawyers from Amber's side. One of them literally objected to their own question.

  • Janet Claire

    I sense that they were so terrified to do the wrong thing with this sketch and be criticised, that they dropped the ball on making it funny.

    • Jay S.
      Jay S.

      Of course! Wouldn’t want to “offend” anyone. lol

      SNL as a whole leans too far one way to make this as funny as it should be.

      Because that would mean they would also have to satirize Amber Heard... and that of course would be.....patriarchy...🤷‍♂️

    It would've been even funnier if Melissa said all her lines in Spanish. "Eso es 'laundry.'" would've killed.

    • BluntforceJ

      @Ismar Winkelman I strongly disagree!!! It would have been hilarious if she only spoke Spanish but Chris Redd still understood her. I'm right and you're wrong. Just deal with it.

    • Ismar Winkelman
      Ismar Winkelman

      No, I don’t believe it would have killed It sounds way too similar to S.O.S.

      This was a HORRIBLE cold open! And your line here was much more funny than their entire skit. Kudos.

    The actual trial is funnier than this sketch.

    I wish they'd added the squeaky chair that Depp reacted to every time Heard's lawyer stood up

    Missed an opportunity for an impersonation of amber heard and to hear her say her dog stepped on a bee 🥴

    • jedijones

      How is Amber Heard not in this sketch? Shouldn't it have built up to something crazy like them both claiming they're innocent, but then they actual really start abusing each other in front of the judge? And then deny that they did anything? This sketch should've written itself. But all we get is bathroom humor. Pathetic.

    U can tell they really care about the production when u can see the flip card on the TV

  • Friendofbts

    Jonny Depp is literally a victim and he was using humour as the coping mechanism. You definitely missed the whole point and pointed out the wrong things and laughed about the wrong things. That is actually sad.

  • Julian Grimm

      Any sketch with the defense doing “objection” over and over would have been a no brainer and way funnier

      @Travis Troxell He lost a defamation case; that isn't evidence that he is an abuser, it only means that it was determines by that court that Amber's words didn't hurt his career and reputation. Can you explain specifically what evidence you're referring to that suggests he is an abuser?

    • Travis Troxell
      Travis Troxell

      @C T he has already lost a case considering him to be called a wife beater. I think they took it easy on him all things considered.

      Nah, if Kate played Amber, it would have make Kyle's casting as Johnny look even worse. Poor Kyle looked like the high school play version of Johnny Depp.

      They were too scared to be funny. They probably had ten different meetings to water down the script and this is the end result.

  • chante1955

    I’m quiet disappointed. This man just came out as a DV survivor and it being made light of. When she initially came out with her lies I didn’t see them making light of it.

    Kyle should never impersonate anyone

    This is a poor attempt to make fun and stay fairly neutral at the same time. They should have just avoided the whole thing.

    • m0L3ify

      They didn't even have Amber IN the court room for this skit. Her PR team is working overtime.

      How is this neautral?!??

    There are people filming from their bedroom with their phone who did better sketches on this trial than SNL.

    the funny part is this might have actually happened, imagine the staff finding the shit, and justthinking, it aint my job


    SNL had a great chance to be funny here and failed miserably

    How can you do this skit and not have anyone impersonating Heard? The fear of the writers is palpable on this one. If you can’t do it right, don’t do it at all.

    No Amber heard? No dog stepping on the bee? No Hearsay? No courtroom coke? Guys???

      No, no, no… can’t go against a woman and her character or lack of it. It’s the age of toxic feminism. Can’t say nothing bad about a woman or hold her accountable.

    So I have to guess they're not really going after Amber's obvious and terrible lies and acting, in case she wins the case? Seems overly cautious, because she's the absolute worst...

  • jedijones

    So on the current SNL, the impressions don't have to be good, the makeup doesn't have to be good, and the jokes can be repetitive and predictable? Got it. Sure miss the old days where they had creative ideas during the O.J. trial segments, like having Johnny Carson show up and come up with actual unexpected jokes.

  • Jack Spedicy 2

    Wow, the actual trial was funnier than this. This actually had the chance for this to be funny but they dropped the ball hard.

    It's like they haven't been watching the trial at all. Did Amber's PR team write this one?

  • Coffee is for closers

    "Smells like Poo poo." It must be somewhat tasking for the SNL crew when the actual trial is just as outrageous and funny as any skit.

    • ShayniBC

      NO. It's much, much more outlandish. Just look at AH's expressions. They could've done a skit on that alone. TikTok is doing a much better job at lampooning this entire ordeal.

  • CaesarStrings

    So much material to make a good sketch and they walked on eggshells around the whole thing. 90s SNL would’ve eviscerated Amber, her lawyers, the judge, Johnny, all of them for the sake of comedy 😂.

    Only SNL could find a way to have all of the content from the trial we have at our disposal and still somehow find a way to make an absolutely unfunny skit on it. I’m pretty amazed honestly. Not a single decent impression. Not a single funny line in the whole skit. Bravo SNL.

      @Ethan Weeter he also hit her. Regularly. Audio and texts from him and his team prove as much and that’s why he lost his last case.

    Missed opportunity: 💩 "Objection! Your honor, we've been through this, there's no actual proof that this ever happened." The judge should of screamed "suSTAINED" and given the defense lawyer a serious, disgusted look.

  • Riclmnopp

    This is the funniest they could come up with?

    • Riclmnopp

      @ReZgar That's a good point. It just feels like the sketch leans in favor of Amber Heard. which seems crazy to me.

    • ReZgar

      @Riclmnopp if her PR team assisted in the sketch they wouldn't have talked about the finger.. Amber claims Depp cut his own finger off. Even though there is audio of Dr kipper talking about amber cutting it off but that audio can't be used in court.

    • Riclmnopp

      @ReZgar Or Amber Heard's PR team helped write the sketch.

    • ReZgar

      I guess they don't have a single person that has watched any of the trial..

    I havent been sure if I wanted SNL to do the trial because for me it's such an important cause. I understand some are finding some comedy in certain things in it but the real headline is a Man in order to be believed had to make his whole life public to be picked apart just to be heard and also to make sure facts are all out not what someones PR wants to spin. While I think there was a lot more things SNL could have done like the Amica cream bit and so much more I also understand the skating around as it's a hard subject. This trial isnt fun for anyone involved honestly just because some funny moments have come from it. At the end of the day a man lost his career a woman has positioned herself as the speaker of victims though she has admitted to abuse and was once arrested for abusing her ex wife in front of officers even. Let's not act like drugs aren't a huge thing In Hollywood or that makes someone suddenly after many decades an abuser

    • wildmercuryfilms

      You nailed it: In the UK, Johnny “lost” for 3 REASONS: 1. The Trial was NOT TELEVISED, which means it was filtered through the WOKE #believallwomen Media; 2. It was NOT a jury trial --- A jury should decide this case, not ONE JUDGE; 3. The Judge had ties to Amber’s team: Amber’s attorney had previously been a lawyer at the law firm that the judge was previously a PARTNER at. YES: Johnny had to make this TRIAL completely PUBLIC so the WORLD could see THE TRUTH about AMBER. In doing so, he had to let HIS OWN dirty laundry to also be exposed. But his dirty laundry is NOTHING compared to Amber’s DV against him and Tasya.

    • C T

      If it's too hard for them to be fair and funny they shouldn't have bothered. You just know this skit was rewritten a hundred times to become this unfunny. They were too scared to depict Heard, too scared to mention her lies, too scared to mention that he was the victim, but not scared to depict him (poorly) on the stand. There were a hundred golden opportunities for humour here that they obviously intentionally avoided, and they all involve Heard and her lies. That's not a coincidence IMO.
