I was somewhat skeptical going into this film. Although it had gottengood reviews, SNL-based films are hit and miss and Will Forte is not aterribly great comedian in my opinion. But, I found MacGruber to bepleasant, actually. Not in the kind of way that I would take my familyto see it, but in the kind of way that it wasn't a serious film andknew exactly what it was doing. And for the most part, it succeeded.MacGruber's actual plot doesn't matter a whole lot. It's pretty much astring of clichÃ©d plot points leading from one joke to another. But thejokes actually work most of the time. Forte does a pretty decent job ofplaying the titular character, as he is crass, rude, vulgar, andselfish. He's not the kind of guy you would really root for, and itwork in his favor when he makes an ass of himself or screws up.Actually, the majority of the cast works well. Kristen Wiig was mypersonal favorite, as her comedic timing was great. One of my favoritemoments comes between her and Val Kilmer's character towards the end.It had me rolling.Most of all, the film is a perfect mock up of action films of the 80's.There are some recognizable clichÃ©s that are torn apart by MacGruberand his hilarious lack of charm, reminiscent of Austin Powers. One ofthe funniest parts of the film were the two sex scenes which play outlike the sex scene out of Top Gun. The MacGuyver parodies are alsoeasily noticed. Being a big MacGuyver fan, I found them hilarious. Fromthe hair to the gadgets, if you enjoyed MacGuyver, then MacGrubershould tickle your funny bone.It is surprising to see this parody work. It's not a perfect film. Idon't know that I could watch it a second time and find it as funny.But I was consistently laughing throughout the film. And, I supposethat's all I can really ask for in a comedy.
I love a good parody and a wry sense of humor. Top Gun had it, as did Airplane, and The Princess Bride. MacGruber didn't have any charm, humor, or ironic giggles in it. In fact, MacGruber was painful to watch, as well as disgusting. All I could think while I hoped it would get better was the writers must have absolutely hated MacGyver. Bad acting, too much gratuitous male nudity, and outright stupidity made me shut it off.
Went to see this movie with a completely open mind, having never even heard of the SNL skits. Top 5 Comedy movies ever created, and most underrated comedy movie ever created. It was so funny (sober) that I went back the next day and saw it again high as a kite, and I couldn't remain in my seat I was laughing so hard.I've since Pirated the movie, and have watched it another 10 or 15 times at least, and I am anxiously awaiting the release on Blu-Ray so I can buy it and own it in high quality with extra footage.You will not be disappointed in this movie, I guarantee it.
Long thought dead special operative MacGruber is called back intoaction to find and defeat his archenemy, Dieter Von Cunth. Cunth is inpossession of a nuclear warhead aimed at the State of the Unionaddress. MacGruber must discover something extra within himself todefeat Cunth, or the free-world will collapse around him.MacGruber is the newest SNL skit to come alive on the silver screen,and like most it's a flop. MacGruber has a lot of really funny scenesand great one-liners, but could have been skits split into an episodeof SNL. MacGruber's plot wasn't there and wasn't believable in anyshape or form. The cast was a good as the normal SNL cast, the onlydifference is in this episode Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer areco-guest stars.I found funny where the sex scenes. If you remember any of the sexscenes from 1980's movies, MacGruber meshes them together plus a littlebit more. After the 80's music montage, MacGruber breaks into songduring intercourse. If you would like to know what MacGruber soundslike during these very funny scenes, checkout this great YouTube videoMel Vidal showed me several months ago.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6R5QueuvKQ4 Really I'm not kidding,that's what MacGruber sounded like in the sex scene. But like mostjokes in MacGruber they really this joke into the grown with MacGruberhaving sex with two different woman back to back making the same noisein each scene.I have always liked watching SNL but very few of their skits translateinto amazing comedies. I honestly believe that Wayne's World being sucha success has tainted the minds of the all the SNL producers intothinking any skit that is funny for 5 minutes will translate into anamazing hour and 45 minutes movies.Monday, May 24, 2010...written by John Richards onhttp://aroundthemovies.com
This review is from: MacGruber (Unrated Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) This movie is so funny and laughed so much this movie may not be for some people as the language can be quite vulgar but, if that doesn't bother you will love it!
Not a great comedy, but I enjoyed redboxing it. Wouldn't need it in my library though.Not for family viewing. It's just rude! Maybe the kind of thing guys enjoy while getting drunk or high. Language didn't seem too bad, just "nasty" and not something I want to watch with Mom around. No sex and the violence is cartoonish yet slightly bloody.
Rarely do I see films in theaters and even more rarely will I walk outon a film, but in the sad case of MacGruber, staring a couple SaturdayNight Live rejects, I was running out of the theater for a refund.MacGruber is one of those films you watch out of boredom, or pity, onlyto feel used and abused after watching. It starts off strong withhorribly good music and a dozen or so cameos to keep you interested,but when the music stops and all of the cameos keeping you seated areblown up, all you want for is to go home. MacGruber is easily one ofthe worst films ever made and that's going off viewing only thirtyminutes of the film. I dare you to watch more.-SiilentMiike (SiilentMiike.com)(http://www.youtube.com/user/SiilentMiike)
I went into watching this thinking i'm not sure if i'm going to think this movies funny, but I'm happy to say this movie is Very funny & quite awesome. I'd like to see them make another. =)
This review is from: MacGruber (Unrated) (Amazon Instant Video) I just finished watching this film. This movie had two impacts for me. First, it altered my list of the worst movies ever made. This movie beats both "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and "The Terror of Tiny Town" as the two worst movies ever made. Secondly, it has forever scarred me regarding the proper use and application of celery. I don't think I'll ever be able to eat it again. Somewhere Ed Wood's ghost is uttering a massive sigh of relief as the mantle of the worst director ever has been suddenly and unceremoniously ripped from his withering corpse.The unfortunate part of this movie is the fact that celery has negative calories and I know that I could have used the help of celery in my calorie control plans. MacGruber has forever forestalled that opportunity.Seriously this is a bad movie. The comedy is consistently painful with little in the way of humorous relief. In a bit more than an hour and a half, I got two chuckles and one smile. The two chuckles involved celery.You may also want to consider this film as a sexual prophylactic. Have your children above 17 watch this and they'll probably be pretty grossed out by sex as well.Necrophilia, celery, mullet hair cuts, plaid flannel shirts, and down vests--who can ask for anything more? The 80's have now displaced the 60's as my most frightening decade.There is one good aspect to this movie. Because of its availability for streaming, I was able to avoid watching it and paying full-price in the theaters. As a lover of B-movies, I want to thank Amazon for that.
Let me just that this movie caught me by complete surprise. I had noknowledge that prior to it being released as a movie, the concept wasbased on 60 second SNL (Saturday Night Live) skits. Where to begin- well first let me say that the movie is intended tomake you laugh, so check yourself in to see a shrink if you analyse itin any other sense. But lets start where it succeeds, the dialogue. Thefilm's material comes from its sharp and intuitive dialogue. Itsrandomness, direction and tolerance make it completely acceptable foranyone. It can be rude and crude, but when you know it's all for funand joy; and a good laugh is subsequent, then what's the harm. Butdon't get me wrong it's not American Pie rude, nor is it Rambo crude.It's just right, hell you even laugh through the two sex scenes. The film's dialogue helps it succeed with surprising situations andelements such as when **MacGruber suddenly and accidentally eliminateshis entire team with explosives, which the movie spent five-or-sominutes developing on.**The movie has the same quirky humour as other films like, Ace Ventura.So if you're looking for a good laugh, then honestly watch it with thesense of easing back one Friday night with mates and relax. Because ittruly is ridiculous.9/10
Either you're hanging your head in shameful embarrassment or you'relaughing your ass off. MacGruber is pretty extreme. It is aridiculously over-the-top, stupid and vulgar comedy, but it's FUNNY ASHELL.HARD R rating.Not only are they spoofing MacGyver, but they're poking funny at 80'sfilm style in general. Everything about this movie was funny. They didan excellent job mocking just about every single aspect of the genre.Pay attention to the details.Honestly, I don't understand all the negative feedback. Just don't letyour momma watch it.
In the Dzhugdzhur Mountains, Eastern Siberia, the criminal Dieter VonCunth (Val Kilmer) robs a Russian X5 nuclear warhead. Colonel JamesFaith (Powers Boothe) travels to Rio Bamba, Ecuador, with the efficientLieutenant Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) to summon the retired specialoperative MacGruber (Will Forte) to retrieve the X5. MacGruber isconsidered deceased after the death of his beloved wife Casey (MayaRudolph) by his archenemy Cunth in their wedding. MacGruber teams upwith Piper and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig) and they learn that theevil Cunth intends to use the warhead to destroy Washington D.C. "MacGruber" is a parody of the "MaCGyver", a successful TV series ofthe 80's. The plot is silly but also funny; the fans of "MacGyver" mayenjoy this film and the stupidities of MacGruber, the agent that doesnot use weapons, more than I did. Anyway it is and entertainment for aSaturday afternoon without soccer on TV. My vote is four.Title (Brazil): "Corram Que o Agente Voltou" ("Run Because the Agent isBack")
This is by far the worst movie I have EVER seen, I had highexpectations on this movie because I love the MacGruber sketches, butthis... this was even worse than "Superhero Movie", it was not funny atall, slow, tedious and boring, and the sex scenes were just awful, Ican't believe that someone actually liked this movie, I wouldn'trecommend it to anyone ever, and I think every copy should be burned,because it was an insult for the fans of the MacGruber's sketches, andto all comedy fans in general, I feel like my time has been robbed andI want it back.If you want to see the REAL MacGruber then go to NBC web page, don'twaste a penny in the movie.
The movie was better than the commercials made it out to be. That in itself is quite a reversal.The one commercial I think which totally put people off from going, one of the worst put out for a film, was the one where the character asks a woman going to the bathroom, "is it for number one or two?"Really? The tone of that question would make you think the movie wasn't simply crude but was so cliche-racked as to be hated.
Will Forte seems be in the same "I'm the comedy" mode as Stiller, ChevyChase, Ferrell ... other boring comedians. You just somehow believethat people want to watch you walk around or fall down or stare at thecamera. That you are so funny people will laugh at anything you do. It's much like news reporters being the news - telling you how theyfeel about an event.This movie is unwatchable. The humor turns on various bathroom & dickjokes. A crude (if this is even possible) "Dumb and Dumber".Maybe teenage boys like this kind of thing. I don't know who would seehumor in someone crapping in the upper toilet tank. And a dozen otherstupid gags.Kristen Wiig was decent. But not enough to make this movie worthseeing.Forte is about like the 85-IQ jock in the frat house who thinks anyprank he does is funny. If you were that guy - or his friend or justenjoyed his antics - maybe you will like this movie. Otherwise don'tbother.
Macgruber was the last SNL skit I was expecting to actually like as amovie. Come on, the skits are 15-45 seconds each. I couldn't imaginewatching this and actually laughing throughout when I saw the trailer,but that's exactly what I did throughout this movie. This isn't as goodof an SNL film as Wayne's World, but it's certainly not as bad as It'sPat. There's laughs coming fast and furious in this film, and eventhough you have to get through the lame ones, there are significantlymore funny, good ones. Will Forte does an excellent job of turning hisSNL character, Macgruber into a man you see in brief glimpses to anactual, funny movie character. This isn't a masterpiece, or hell, evenclever, but I laughed, and that's all I was asking for from this film.Val Kilmer isn't particularly funny, but he does make a good villain.The only really funny thing in his character is that his last name isCunth. Yes, his last name is Cunth. I actually walked out of thistheater thinking man, I loved this movie. Overall, if you're in themood for some good raunchy laughs, you should see Macgruber because itwill be right up your alley.
This review is from: MacGruber (Amazon Instant Video) Once in a while a film comes along that is absolutely brilliant, yet somehow it isn't acknowledged at the Oscars. Macgruber changed my life. I like holes...
This review is from: MacGruber (Unrated Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) I borrowed this movie on DVD a couple of years ago, not knowing what to expect. I was curious, since I had read in many websites I frequent about this movie being made and it was already being plagued by mixed opinions before it was released or even made.Later I found out this was based on some kind of TV sketch (SNL, I think?). The opinions on that TV sketch seem to range from hate to indifference. I have never made an opinion because I found out about the sketch's existence long after watching the movie, and I stopped watching TV a long time ago.In any case, I don't care if that sketch is the stupidest, unfunniest thing in the world. This movie is WONDERFUL. I fell in love with it the moment I watched it. It's both a throwback and a parody of 80's action flicks. If you loved those, you'll love this film. Most people who critizice this movie do it for three reasons, either because they don't get the references to classic films, becausse they misinterpret the jokes or because they think it's similar to the TV show.I know from good sources that the latter belief is false. And I can tell you that this movie is fun for all the good reasons. Yes, it does have some jokes that might look juvenile, but just like with, say, South Park, those jokes are there as an excuse for the much more interesting, smarter and way funnier parodies of other material.Give this movie a chance. Don't take the negatives at face value. Watch the film and remember you're supposed to laugh AT MacGruber, not WITH him.
There were a lot of reasons why I was doubtful about the success ofthis movie. First, I had seen many Saturday Night Live movies and werenot satisfied with many of them, and had even more doubt about turninga 90 second clip into a 90 minute feature film. However, I was quitesurprised about how funny this movie actually became. The situationswere quite predictable but the movie was not about the plot complexityas it was about characters. Kritsen Wiig and Will Arnett were able tosuccessfully transplant their television chemistry onto the film reelwith some remarkably funny scenes. I recommend this film to anybody whoenjoyed "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" for its style of humorand anyone familiar with Saturday Night Live.
As many people did, I balked at this movie when it came out, mostly due to the negative reviews, critics and independents alike. However, a friend pushed it to me.....If you like Stepbrothers, Ron Burgundy, Team America, Talladega Nights, Caddy Shack, Happy Gilmore and can detach yourself from the "I only watch academy award caliber movies" attitude, you will love this movie. The second time I saw it, I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe at times. Like other SNL classics in the past--Night at the Roxbury, Coneheads, Waynes World, The Ladies Man, Blues Brothers--this movie is CLASSIC SATIRE. Please do not vote unless you generally like satire or if you simply have not watched the full film.
