More Pistachio Disguisey than Austin Powers, this cheapjack comedy is nowhere near as ingenious as the man it sends up.

Birmingham Post

Relies heavily on its lowest common denominator foul-mouthed jokes, which includes sticking a piece of celery where no vegetable belongs and MacGruber having sex with his dead wife while they are both standing up.

MacGruber is patchy, underwritten and frequently lazy but the performances are good and there are enough big laughs here to compensate for its inadequacies.

Leading man Will Forte will make you pine for the graceful savoir faire of a Jack Black or an Adam Sandler.

Perhaps a satire of Nicolas Cage's Jerry Bruckheimer movies.

The latest R-rated movie aimed at the funnybones of 12-year-old boys.

If one joke clanks, the next one isn't long behind. The result is a brisk 88 minutes that ensures that if you didn't like it, your suffering was at least brief.

Surprisingly, lots better than extended fart jokes

A film that poses a philosophical question fundamental to our inquiry here, namely: "Why does this exist?"

Some of these two minute sketches look a little thin at 87 to 92 minutes.

The thing that stands out about the film is just how raunchy it is- it's probably the dirtiest material ever connected to the "Saturday Night Live" brand in its 35 years.

Oddly for a movie so obsessed with male nudity, there's also a number of gags relying on homosexual panic.

While it's very funny that this short sketch was made into a movie, the movie is short on laughs.

MacGruber short on comedic ammo.

Shadows on the Wall

Instead of any actual comedy, this film merely resorts to easy gross-out mayhem.

Austin Chronicle

The film goes by in a wash of uninspired action and unmemorable comedy; the daffy, mock ingenuity of the original sketch is long gone, and MacGruber's ineffectualness has degraded into flat-out incompetence, with far fewer comedic rewards.

From one of Saturday Night Live's lamest recurring sketches comes one of its funniest spinoffs.

Film Threat

The first movie based on an SNL sketch that neglects to incorporate the essential elements of that sketch-which are, after all, the only reason for the picture's existence.

Kudos to Wiig for creating an actual character: shy, scared, much smarter than she knows. Sadly, not smart enough to reject this rudely-fashioned piece of junk that even MacGyver would have refused to handle.
