World War II movies definitely have a certain aura to them. They always seem to resonate with the audience, and when, at the last moment, the hero dies, it always hits us in the gut.
In a recent “Saturday Night Live” skit, the show lampooned the over-the-top films that we’re used to. The bit features Lin-Manuel Miranda comforting Pete Davidson on the edge of death. Davidson asks “the Sarge” to recover his “toy for the butt” saying, “I’d hate for my girlfriend to find it. She just wouldn’t understand.”
The iconic skit show, which has spent the past few months blasting the Trump administration, will not be on the air this weekend.
