How are you liking Martin and Baldwin so far?

I think they're doing a terrific job. Spunky, mocking, self-mocking -- and actually funny. And how about Neil Patrick Harris' opening number? Also very funny...I loved the line about dropping the soap.

Wins so far: Waltz, good choice. Up, good. John Hughes tribute now. Sweet.

I absolutely loved them. From the opening jokes, to the funny filmed vignettes. The one of them sharing the hotel room (must have been a take on Planes, Trains and Automobiles, one of my fav comedies) made me choke it was so funny.

But when Ben Stiller came out all Blue and spoke N'avi, that was the best laugh of the night.

I'm so glad to hear that you also thought they were wonderful. I thought the filmed bits were completely adorable and hilarious. (I think the bedroom one also was a riff on the "Paranormal Activity" movie about ghosts, which I haven't seen, but it's got lots of that night photog stuff). And in those blanket-things? Just great!

And Ben Stiller was so great, too. I actually thought that the humor was much better than usual -- actually often really funny and not lame -- and I do think they wrote well for Martin and Baldwin and gave them a terrific dynamic. I want to see them in more "30 Rock" eps together, or a movie with only them being so funny. Not a romantic comedy for menopausal women, please, like "It's Complicated". I couldn't look at that if you pried my eyes open with matchsticks.

What I've read around the net seems to more or less like what M & B did, which is good. I think you and I REALLY loved them! :-)
