If you’ve seen “Valentine’s Day” and “New Year’s Eve” you’re familiar with the format. Every single celebrity in the world stars in a movie taking place on one of the most romantic days of the year. They hate their jobs and hate the fact that they’re single and lonely.
Such is the premise for “Martin Luther King Day”, except it’s not a real movie. It’s a spoof that will be features on an upcoming episode of “30 Rock”. Creator Tina Fey wanted to play up on all these ridiculously cheesy star-studded films that have come out this past year.
MLK Day is probably the least romantic holiday of the year (besides Ground Hog Day, of course) so watching Emma Stone and Andy Samberg whine about not having dates for the special day makes the other films look ludicrous.
As funny as this trailer may be, we should all be happy it’s not real.
