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.
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.
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.
