Birds do it. Squirrels do it. And now, “Maya & Marty” has done it.
The NBC summer sketch comedy series adapted the popular children’s book “Everyone Poops” into a blockbuster sci-fi movie trailer Tuesday night — and it appears well worth the price of admission.
In the film, Ana Gasteyer is the brave scientist pushing biology to prove that everyone, indeed, poops. She is met with more resistance than you might think.
Her husband isn’t having it, and neither is the President of the United States (Martin Short). Oh, and Kenan Thompson threatens to kill her for making the breakthrough public. It’s all quite dramatic — and yes, funny.
The Lorne Michaels-produced show stuck with “Saturday Night Live” tradition for the pre-taped skit, inserting hilarious and earnest publication pull-quotes into the teaser, such as: “It feels like they’re running out of children’s books to adapt.” – USA Today
