MacGruber (2010)



Critic Consensus: It too often mistakes shock value for real humor, but MacGruber is better than many SNL films -- and better than it probably should be.

Critic Reviews for MacGruber

All Critics (133) | Top Critics (23)

This comedy is an absolute waste of time and easily the worst movie of 2010.

Big Hollywood

It's not just him badly defusing bombs over and over. It's much stupider (and smarter) than that.

Full Review… | April 4, 2011

Bereft of any kind of laughs or remote giggles when not blatantly ripping off the Austin Powers mold...

Cinema Crazed

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.

Film Threat

This feature length version quickly outstays its welcome with uninspiring jokes and schoolboy humour.

Big-screen SNL skit explodes with crass humor, sex, blood.

Audience Reviews for MacGruber

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 something resembling a plot, in which MacGruber has to overcome his baggage and his incompetence in order to take down the villain, Dieter Cunth - great name - played by Val Kilmer, who is still alive, I guess... and to his credit, can still act decently. Kristen Wiig is always funny, and Ryan Phillippe is quite good as the straight man, too, but as most would anticipate, there's not much here. A forgettable indulgence.

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 be the comdey Queen, even in movies.

Such a great transformation of MacGruber from SNL to the big screen. Highly recommended for fans of the MacGruber segments on SNL. Forte & Wiig together in this movie have natural chemistry and are a class act. Maya Rudolph's character, even though not in the movie a lot, is great & who could forget Ryan Phillippe's, Piper or Val Kilmer's, Dieter Von Cunth. Memorable characters and lines come together to make this movie the perfect movie for any season.
