Most underrated, powerful and funniest American comedy I've ever seen. Forte's more superb than any film, Wiig's funnier than any film, Phillippe's sexier than any FUCKING film, oh celery? celery or anything in his arse. WTF, WWWWWWWWTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF????????????
A dead-on replica of a Cannon/Orion films actioner that often forgets the jokes. Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer are enjoyable, as the intelligent people who have to put up with MacGruber's idiocy (as his ally & enemy respectively). Kristen Wiig's scene in the coffee shop is the highlight of the movie.
Yup, really funny. Something as simple as aping a Michael Bay style action film makes this feel much more like a completely movie in its own right and not a series of gags like other SNL films. Also having Val Kilmer commit to playing a real villain helps. It's a great, unwinking performance.
Not as bad as you’d expect, but nothing special either. The cast is likable and it has its moments, but the humor is scattershot and the plot never quite builds enough momentum. It’s nice to see a comedy that doesn’t skimp on the production values, but this one is ultimately pretty forgettable.
