Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that's been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth, MacGruber figures he's the only one tough enough for the job.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A film that poses a philosophical question fundamental to our inquiry here, namely: "Why does this exist?""
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"While it would be unfair to saddle MacGruber with the "worst SNL movie of all-time" moniker (I can think of at least two that are more painful to endure), its place on the vaunted 2010 Worst 10 list is assured."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"This comedy is an absolute waste of time and easily the worst movie of 2010."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"My advice? Wear gloves, a surgical mask, and get the proper inoculations before entering the theatre. It's the first sexually transmitted comedy of the year."
‑ Elias Savada, Film Threat
"It achieves wit in a realm where stupidity is too often deemed sufficient."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Some of these two minute sketches look a little thin at 87 to 92 minutes."
‑ Michael Phillips, At the Movies
"MacGruber is by no means a work of genius, or a piece of art, or even very good. But Forte and company have managed to make crude and lewd dunderheadedness laugh-out-loud funny here and there, and that, I guess, is something of an achievement."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"It's not just him badly defusing bombs over and over. It's much stupider (and smarter) than that."
‑ Dave White,
"This feature length version quickly outstays its welcome with uninspiring jokes and schoolboy humour."
‑ Mike Barnard, Future Movies UK
"It's further proof, as if any were needed, of SNL producer Lorne Michaels' contempt for the audience."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"You need a great character to make a bad thing good, and the action comedy MacGruber is sadly short on great characters."
‑ Ruth McCann, Washington Post
"There's a conceptual flaw at this movie's heart: By the very nature of the sketch, MacGruber can't succeed on the big screen."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Bereft of any kind of laughs or remote giggles when not blatantly ripping off the Austin Powers mold..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Big-screen SNL skit explodes with crass humor, sex, blood."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"Will Forte, director Jorma Taccone, and the sublime Kristen Wiig triumph with their own brand of unique, risky lunacy"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
