From Amazon.co.uk

No comic explosion, but not quite a dud, no Wayne's World, but not The Ladies Man either, MacGruber does manage to pull off the seemingly impossible mission of expanding a 90-second one-joke Saturday Night Live sketch into a feature film. What's next: "Toonces the Cat Who Could Drive a Car"? In those MacGruber sketches, Will Forte's mullet-maned hero "makes life-saving inventions out of household materials" but always gets sidetracked as the bomb he's defusing ticks down to its last 20 seconds. Blown up for the big screen, MacGruber finds a bigger payoff whenever the film sidetracks from the standard-issue '80s action movie plot, as witness MacGruber's deranged revenge fantasies toward a driver who hurled a drive-by insult at his car. MacGruber's secret weapon is Val Kilmer as a megalomaniacal villain (his name, not appropriate for a family website, is a profanely puerile running joke) with a stolen Russian nuclear warhead and a grudge against MacGruber. MacGruber's somewhat less than A-team includes Vicki St. Elmo (SNL MVP Kristin Wiig), more into her music than into saving the world, and straight arrow Lieutenant Piper (Ryan Phillippe), who begins to question MacGruber's unorthodox tactics (one involving a diversionary stalk of celery is just one of the film's more jaw-dropping gross-out gags). MacGruber may not set the world on fire, but the insanely committed Forte, like MacGruber, will do anything, no matter how obscene, to complete his mission. Mission pretty much accomplished, particularly in a sex scene that is the most outrageous of its kind since Team America: World Police (albeit, thankfully, not as graphic). --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

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 honour and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Live’s clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action comedy MacGruber. In the 10 years since his fiancée 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 (Val Kilmer), MacGruber figures he’s the only one tough enough for the job.

Assembling an elite team of experts—Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig)—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.

Special Features:
  • 2 versions of feature: Unrated and Theatrical
  • Feature Commentary with cast and crew
  • Deleted scenes
  • Gag reel

4.0 out of 5 stars Team America without the puppets... 7 Sep 2010
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
MacGruber is a feature length adapation of the Saturday Night Live bit featuring Will Forte as MacGruber, a thinly veiled parody of a certain retro TV show. When MacGruber's nemesis, Dieter von C*nth (Val Kilmer - Heat) steals a nuclear warhead from an ex-soviet bloc country, the US Army call in their number one guy to deal with the problem. MacGruber must ditch his life of peace at an Equadorian Monastery and reassemble his old team in order to stop the evil C*nth (pronounced as you might expect...) and finally avenge his wife's death. MacGruber runs around solving any situation with his assortment of household items and his ability to combine them in some sort of lethal manner, couple this with a natural propensity for "ripping throats" and you have yourself one deadly super-agent.

Ryan Phillipe (Crash) plays the straight guy to Forte's bumbling idiot and provides the institutional rigor for MacGruber to rebel against but is largely wasted in this kind of role. Kristen Wiig (Knocked Up) plays Vicki St. Elmo, our hero's love interest, bringing a lot of humour to the role with her insecure mannerisms and unfaltering obedience to MacGruber's idiotic schemes which, for some reason, generally involve her dressing up as MacGruber himself or some other guy. Val Kilmer plays a solid bad guy but the role is really a cardboard cut out.

The one thing I feel compelled to tell you before you part with your hard-earned cash; is that there are startling comparisons between this and

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest film I've seen in a long time! 9 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
This film is right up there with Anchor Man and The Hangover for me. I noticed many people moaning saying the humour isn't to their taste and therefore the score they give is a poor one. Understandable that people have different tastes.
For me, This film is a hidden gem. There are several scenes which make me laugh over and over again. I frequently quote sections of the film at work where my colleague will join in and we both look quite stupid. It's great. Not to be taken seriously. I'm not going to talk about the plot of the film. Thats probably in the description. Will Forte is brilliant. MacGruber is a wonderful character who is portrayed not as an idiot but someone who may be slightly out of touch with the real world. I will say that the obsession with the car was genius. Its bits like this that make this film one you can watch over and over again.

If you're a prude, don't go near it. Also, don't write a review about it complaining about certain scenes. The film isn't for you so don't slate it.

If you're like me and do not care about cringe worthy scenes, (sexual or otherwise) grab a few mates, some drinks and enjoy.

Classic MacGruber.

3.0 out of 5 stars You may never eat celery again 1 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
Okay, I hate to start by blatantly stealing someone else's quote, but, when reading other reviews of MacGruber, someone else described it as `Team America, but without the puppets.' Yes, I'd say that's a fair definition - only Team America was very funny and clever. MacGruber has a lot to live up to.

When I started watching MacGruber, I hated it. I was totally with those many 1/5 star reviews I'd seen describing it. My main gripes were that it simply wasn't funny and that the main character (MacGruber, believe it or not) was completely annoying. I was practically on the brink of turning it off after about half an hour, when, to my amazement, I actually laughed.

It's possible that by watching half an hour of this film lowered by IQ enough to watch - and enjoy - the rest of it. Okay, so the second half wasn't comedy gold, but I seemed to have a better idea as to what this film was trying to be and I laughed enough not to qualify this as a complete flop. However, it's worth noting that this film bombed at the box office, so perhaps I'm in a minority here.

It's a (loose) satire on action films where the `burned out hero' is plucked from retirement for `one last mission.' It has been done a fair few times before - Hotshots Part Deux was done nearly twenty years ago (and it's probably consistently funnier), but it has enough moments (in the second half) to make it just about worth watching.

And - seriously - don't eat the celery.
