A comedy based on Will Forte’s bumbling secret agent whose lack of skill and abundance of personal problems serve as a detriment to him and those around him.
It’s not often I see a movie preview and cringe, but I have to admit MacGruber did this to me. It looks so poorly written and thrown together, I cannot imagine checking this movie out. Seriously, why would anyone be seen checking out this movie, wait for the DVD.
Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery.
And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In the 10 years since his fiancee was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that’s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth, MacGruber figures he’s the only one tough enough for the job.
Assembling an elite team of experts–Lt. Dixon Piper and Vicki St. Elmo–MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.

Get Smart, Hot Shots, Police Squat
Mullets and Will Forte, Dieter Von Cunth is a sweet name I may register on XBox Live.
The cast of SNL ruining another of my favorite shows as a kid.
Our Clever Prediction
Blah. Slapstick comedy like this never gets me riled up, and I can’t see a ton of substance to the film. I suspect MacGruber to be a huge flop.
May 27th Update : MacGruber could prove to be the biggest flop in the past 10 years, and the second worse SNL movie ever. Glad to see my prediction held true.
