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.
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.
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.
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.
Its core joke is decades late, and any nostalgic retro-pastiche the Richard Dean Anderson show might have held in American culture has been thoroughly used up already by The Simpsons and a 2006 Super Bowl commercial for Mastercard.
