Watch Anna Kendrick As A Modern-Day Little Mermaid On SNL

Always thought Anna Kendrick had a certain je ne sais quoi that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I mean, I’ve thought this since “Up In The Air,” and “Pitch Perfect” stepped it up. But now, with her portrayal of Ariel, the Little Mermaid, on Saturday night, that je ne sais quoi can be…
