It's pretty fantastic, is what I'm getting at.

Kristen Wiig lends it a bit of class as the hero's moll, Vicki St Elmo, but Forte is a pain, the scatological crudity unrelenting, and the air of pointlessness unignorable.

MacGruber is easily the best movie based on a Saturday Night Live skit in 15 years. But, considering the quality of recent sketch-to-screen projects, that sentence doesn't quite do justice to how funny the movie is.

It's funny but forgettable.
March 30, 2019
[MacGruber is] a misguided MacGyver spoof, which relies on shock value and bad-TV nostalgia for what little fizz it has.
March 30, 2019
MacGruber fails where every single Saturday Night Live skit-turned-movie, save for Wayne's World, has failed. They take something that is funny for five minutes and think it can be funny for 90 minutes.
March 30, 2019
This spoof of 1980s' action hero MacGyver just isn't funny, with its banal reliance on lame sex jokes.
March 30, 2019
One of the more interesting and unusual aspects of the film is the sheer unattractiveness and unpleasantness of the hero.
March 30, 2019
A brash, intermittently funny, but predictably disposable movie, just about good enough for a switch-off-brain DVD rental.
March 30, 2019
It's hilarious. And most likely one of the funniest movies you'll see this season.
March 30, 2019
Jorma Taccone's MacGruber movie may not be as slick or as smart a genre deconstruction as Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz, but it's very, very funny.
March 30, 2019
MacGruber is funny, at times eye wateringly funny but it is by no means an inspired comedy or one that will appeal to everyone as it's rude, crude and at times plain stupid but it's definitely funny.
March 30, 2019
It's not aiming to be anything other than an amusing send-up and celebration of self-assured idiot characters and acid-washed jean eras and in that it respect it mostly succeeds.
March 30, 2019
In the film version, the shaggy-mullet-sporting action hero took a detour from stupidly funny to just plain stupid.
March 30, 2019
The canon of cheesy action movies offers such a vast reserve of mockable nonsense that no parody can fail to come up with one or two funny jokes of its own, and there are some chucklesome bits in this one.
March 30, 2019
An action-comedy-thriller (although the term "dud" is better), MacGruber is based on a recurring American Saturday Night Live sketch -- a joke funny for 20 seconds, but not 99 minutes.
December 5, 2018
A profoundly self-aware comedy that works on another level for those with more than a passing knowledge of action film history. The laughs-per-minute quotient is nearly untouchable.
December 5, 2018
The film drags and is ultimately less funny as a whole than some of the scenes are on their own, but it has a high rewatch quotient thanks to a number of running gags and tiny details.
December 5, 2018
Any fans of satire who haven't checked out MacGruber yet, prepare to be converted into believers like the man himself when he finally uses a gun for the first time.
December 25, 2012
This comedy is an absolute waste of time and easily the worst movie of 2010.
