Ex-special operative MacGruber is called back into action to take down his archenemy, Dieter Von Cunth, who's in possession of a nuclear warhead and bent on destroying Washington, D.C. Based on the "Saturday Night Live" sketch, this action-packed comedy stars Will Forte as incompetent former special ops agent MacGruber. When he's called back into action to deactivate archenemy Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber is on the case. Now, he must thwart Von Cunth's plans to destroy Washington, D.C., with a nuclear warhead. Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, Maya Rudolph and Powers Boothe co-star.
First of all, I am not a person who gets offended from crass humor. When MacGruber tries to let loose with it's R rating, it fails horribly. It really does. In those moments, it was like a 13 year old wrote it, and the entire time, they thought if the character said the "f-word" a bunch of times, that it would be funny. It really got old. But MacGruber still managed to be entertaining, because about half the time, they do a fantastic job making fun of MacGyver, and the film ends on a hysterical note. I wouldn't see it in theaters (but unfortunately I did), but it'd be a fun rental. And there were wrestler cameos up the wazoo at the begnning!
