    How the hell can you take an SNL skit that runs 90 seconds and stretch it to a 90-minute feature? Sounds excruciating. But MacGruber breaks the jinx by putting the skit in the context of a 1980s action movie and creating its own brand of explosive lunacy. show more

    Forte and company have managed to make crude and lewd dunderheadedness laugh-out-loud funny here and there, and that, I guess, is something of an achievement. show more

    To call MacGruber"a total bomb is a bit much, but this comedy-action flick sure feels like it was put together with gum, shoelaces and a couple of sticky Twizzlers. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Utterly disposable but diverting, MacGruber manages to spin feature-length product out of an idea that few would try expanding beyond a "Saturday Night Live" skit. show more

    MacGruber never gathers any momentum. Once in a while a funny line or absurd sight gag will amble into the foreground, only to recede immediately in the rear-view mirror of memory. show more

    MacGruber is crude. It’s obscene. The dialogue is puerile and the jokes adolescent. And for the most part, it's hilarious: a bawdy riot drunk on impropriety, which is why the movie works. show more

    All thing considered, MacGruber’ is a lot better than it should be. That still doesn’t mean it’s all that great. show more

    Kilmer makes a worthy, if somewhat underscripted villain. And some of the bits -- MacGruber idiotically setting traps that the bad guys never fall for -- tickle. But this still feels instantly dated, a "Hot Rod in a Role Models" era. show more

    For all the wacky, taboo, parodic situations that MacGruber plunges into, the film seems content to simply point at its hero, yell "What a schmuck!" and leave it at that. show more

    Watching this movie, I wished I knew how to use dental floss, a paper clip, and a crumpled movie ticket to break the projector. show more

    MacGruber has set a new standard for the worst movie made in the history of cinema. Anyone in their right mind would choose water boarding over sitting through 10 minutes of MacGruber!

    BEST COMEDY since the Naked Gun Movies, only this one was more for the adults! I've never laughed so hard at a movie before. So why did it go straight to the cheap seats? I'm guessing two reasons. First, not many know McGuyver or didn't think the comedy skits of McGuyver were that funny, which they really aren't compared to this film. Second, the first joke in the movie is a homosexual joke so many might have taken it personally and walked out of the film before seeing the next jokes revealed him to be bi-sexual and the whole movie was full of sex jokes so like I said, more for adults. This movie was a thousand times better than Hot Tub Time Machine. I'm going to see this a few more times before it leaves the cheap seats. It may not have gotten the attention it deserved at the box office, but I have a feeling this one will become a Cult Classic.
