SNL One-Dimensional Female Character Skit

SNL Hilariously Points Out the Flaws in Hollywood's Female Representation

This past weekend's Saturday Night Live episode was a major win on all fronts. For starters, we had Martin Freeman as host, who totally killed it in a hysterical Lord of the Rings spinoff, of course. But perhaps our favorite highlight of the night was the cast's commentary on "one-dimensional female characters from male-driven comedies." Cecily Strong's portrayal as "Heather, from work" is incredibly spot-on and perfectly portrays the unerring defects when it comes to female misrepresentation in film. Meet Heather in the clip below! She eats burgers — but has the body of a "salad girl" — and you probably won't notice how attractive she is until she takes off her glasses.
