(Newser) – Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy hammed it up last night on Saturday Night Live, admonishing her two young children to "go to bed now 'cause Momma is about to get pretty inappropriate." The actress' "sketch comedy roots were on display as she threw herself into every scene," writes Sage Stossell for the Atlantic, "with mostly strong results." She wasn't kidding, writes Danielle Anderson for People, between "tongue-kissing a pony balloon" and telling would-be suitor Andy Samberg, "My lifelong nickname is Skid Marks, but I've never owned a car."
