“Somehow heartbreak feels good in a place like this.”
Chloe Fineman hilariously mimicked Nicole Kidman’s now-famous AMC ad segment for the season 48 premiere of “Saturday Night Live.”
The comedian’s impersonation of Kidman was spot on, mocking the 2021 commercial that inspired countless memes and had a cult-like following.
“We come to this place for magic,” said Fineman, 34, mostly sticking to the original script while mimicking Kidman’s hand gestures.
“We come to AMC Theaters to laugh, cry, care. Because we need that. All of us.”
She then recited Kidman’s most iconic line, 55, in the ad — “heartbreak feels good in a place like this” — which has truly cemented its place in pop culture history.
Comedian Kenan Thompson then came into the picture, playing an ordinary theater-goer who was not completely sold by the message.
“Our heroes feel like the best part of us,” Fineman continued, in character, as her eyes lit up and she began to lie over the cinema.
“What the f–k just happened,” Thompson hilariously concluded the skit.
Fans reacted quickly to the video on social media, which posted on the official “SNL” Twitter account: “Stand for the national anthem.”
“Lol, so good,” one fan tweeted, while another wrote, “Love Chloe! She’s so talented!”
A third viewer chimed in: “Chloe Fineman is one of the funniest” [sic] talented artists on SNL!”
Fans also jumped into the comment section of the NBC show’s Instagram page, writing things like, “Wait, this is actually really funny…well done SNL,” and “I WAS IN TEARSSSSS.”
The original viral ad featured Kidman waltzing through an empty movie theater, staring into the camera lens while earnestly delivering her lyrics.
The ‘Big Little Lies’ star charmed not only moviegoers but also AMC executives when she recently extended her contract to be the chain’s spokesperson for another year.
“As Nicole Kidman reminds us in AMC’s now iconic and well-respected ad campaign, ‘Given that Hollywood has great stories to tell,’ it is clear that movie fans are so eager to enjoy those dazzling visuals on AMC’s massive solo screens,” AMC CEO Adam said Aron in August.
Kidman, for her part, was still a little surprised at what made the TV spot such a hit.
“I can’t tell you why it worked or why it went viral,” Kidman told GQ. “But what I can tell you is that the reaction is a direct result of the number of people going back to the cinema to enjoy the movies. And that’s exciting.”
