MacGruber isn't very funny but it does have a couple of laugh out loud moments. It's good that it doesn't milk these laugh out loud moments by repeating them but unfortunately it does with all the crap jokes. It's been done before and it has been done better (never brilliantly, b...

It's one joke, stretched over 90 minutes... I don't know that anyone expected this to be good, or really, what the purpose of writing a review about it would be. What you see is what you get: a series of decent gags, the occasional one hilarious, strung together lazily with somet...

I only own a film if I can watch it again and again and again and still enjoy it. Which I can do with this film. It's stupid and I think it's basicaly all the jokes Forte and Taccone couldn't get into SNL. But damnit it's funny. This was the first sign that Wiig was going to ...

Far far worse than I was expecting, this is what happens when you expand a 30-second Saturday Night Live sketch to a full-blown movie. MacGruber, a one-joke parody of MacGyver, becomes a one-joke movie. It's about an inept special agent who has to save the world from a criminal m...

Sometimes it's okay to be lowbrow. Maybe I was just in the right mood, but this had me giggling consistently, with several outright guffaws. Included one of the funniest sex scenes I've ever seen.
