About the Movie

Only one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, and only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. 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 his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that’s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter VonCunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber teams up with his trusty sidekick (SNL’s breakout star Kristen Wiig) and an uptight lieutenant (Ryan Phillippe) to get the job done. The trio sets out on a rampage of utter destruction in this action comedy that’s so over-the-top, it “makes The Hangover look like Beaches” (!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A film that poses a philosophical question fundamental to our inquiry here, namely: "Why does this exist?" – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: A naughty throwaway in all senses of the word throwaway -- 90 minutes of talented performers doing and saying dumb, crude stuff in pursuit of an elusive laugh, in a disposable action-comedy... – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: How much mileage can a comedy get from a single joke? Quite a bit, judging from the guffaws-to-groaners ratio in MacGruber... – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: While this jury-rigged exercise may not be an explosion of laughs, it's no dud, either. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

if you find saturday night live funny, then you will LOVE this movie! if you don't like that kind of humor, you may not like it. I honestly couldn't stop laughing the whole movie in the theatre when it first came out!


Freaking hilarious. I dont care what the other people say this movie is hilarious

Way under rated

I can't understand why this film got poor reviews. It was amazingly fun throughout. It must just not be for everyone. I liked the skit so maybe thats why I liked this. The movie is very similar humor.
