Great Extension of an SNL skit, don't think it stands on its own!!

MacGruber (2010) This is an action comedy film based on the Saturday Night Live sketch of the same name. It is a parody of action-adventure television series MacGyver and 80s action films in general. It's imperative you have a sense of what SNL parodies the do and what the film is riffing on, before watching it. If you aren't a fan of SNL or never watched Macgyver, this movie will likely be lost on you. I don't feel this movie had a chance to stand on its own, without the above referenced precursors. This is also why I think it was marginalized by critics and did poorly at the box office. No matter, it's now considered a cult classic. This is largely due to a stellar cast. Although there we a few missteps, this movie generally avoided avoided the common mistakes of cheap humor often made in these type of movies. This film delivered a decent blend of comedy and nostalgia that makes it worth checking out.

Worth A Watch

It's worth a watch if your expectations are not too high.It has it's funny moments and irritating moments. It was supposed to be a parody of the 80's TV show Macgyver , however it was far from it, which i am glad.

Worth a watch if you got nothing better to do

Worth It! (Even if you didn't like SNL)

MacGruber originated as a popular SNL sketch which I never found that funny. So it took a while to convince myself that this would be worth the time.

Will Forte plays a formal special ops fighter named MacGruber. His wife was killed on their wedding day by nemesis Dieter Von Cunth (played by Val Kilmer). That's all you need to know.

Two things should be addressed regarding this film:

1) The cast is surprisingly good with Will Forte, Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Ryan Phillippe (Cruel Intentions) work really well off of one another. I was particularly impressed by Val Kilmer (aka Iceman from Top Gun) who seemingly came out of nowhere to fill this role.

2) I was not aware of this until afterward, but this MacGruber was directed by Jorma Taccone!! This is the guy who has an extensive history writing for SNL, was part of the comedy trio called The Lonely Island (SNL Digital Shorts), eventually going on to both perform AND direct the recent comedic musical "Popstar" in 2016. I'm a huge fan of his work and it really shines in MacGruber.

Don't ignore this one. Like I said, even if you aren't a fan of SNL or the sketch, it's a completely different game on the big screen.
