John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

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

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

Cinema Crazed

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

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.

Future Movies UK

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

Common Sense Media

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

It achieves wit in a realm where stupidity is too often deemed sufficient.

It's further proof, as if any were needed, of SNL producer Lorne Michaels' contempt for the audience.

CinePassion

Will Forte, director Jorma Taccone, and the sublime Kristen Wiig triumph with their own brand of unique, risky lunacy

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

An avalanche of scatalogical humour and lame jokes that make the Austin Powers films look like masterpieces by comparison.

Fan The Fire

If you're a fan of the SNL sketch, you'll like what you see here, though newcomers might be left asking why they bothered to adapt it for the big screen at all.

Terry Staunton
Radio Times

Forte is likeable as the renegade good guy but the humour relies too heavily on blatantly telegraphed sight gags and villains with rude-sounding names.

Alex Zane
Sun Online

It's ridiculous, crude and, most importantly, jaw-achingly funny.

Andrew Pulver
Guardian

After a few promising opening gags, inspiration soon begins to fizzle out; the film ends up looking less smart than the material it's supposed to be parodying.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

Will Forte, who hasn't starred in a movie before and looks extremely unlikely to do so again, lacks the slightest vestige of credibility or charm as MacGruber. He also cowrote the script. Let's just say comedy is not Forte's forte.

Matt Glasby
Total Film

Throwaway but genuinely funny throughout, MacGruber plays like Hot Shots: Part Trois or a live-action Team America: World Police -- a summer six-pack movie that makes up for in laughs what it lacks in longevity.

Limara Salt
Little White Lies

Despite the occasional laugh, strong performances from Phillippe and the ever-reliable Wiig and the most ridiculous sex scene since Team America: World Police, jokes that are funny within the first five minutes became stale at an alarming rate.

June 17, 2010
Simon Reynolds
Digital Spy

MacGruber might be a wildly uneven ride, but it doesn't outstay its welcome and lined up against other Saturday Night Live productions it's hardly the worst of the bunch.

Robbie Collin
News of the World

Unexpectedly, this feature-length cash-in on a mildly popular American comedy sketch is more fun than most of this year's bum-awful blockbuster crop put together.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies

Forte plays it commendably straight as a malfunctioning Chuck Norris while the cliches of the genre - obsession with manhood, a gurning megalomaniac and maverick methods - are soundly nailed.
