THE ULTIMATE TOOL.
Another Saturday Night Live character gets his own movie, with the expected slim but occasionally funny results. As a spoof of the TV series MacGyver (1985-1992) it kind of works, especially when it focuses on MacGruber as being trapped in the 1980s, always haunted by some of the decade’s silliest hits. Will Forte is fully committed to the part and even engages in a few hilarious sex scenes with Kristen Wiig. Very bloody, very ridiculous… but the story about a supervillain (Val Kilmer) threatening Washington is about as lazy as they come.
2010-U.S. 90 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Jorma Taccone. Cast: Will Forte (MacGruber), Kristen Wiig (Vicki St. Elmo), Ryan Phillippe (Dixon Piper), Powers Boothe, Maya Rudolph, Val Kilmer.
