It’s a silly comedy day at Another Plot Device. To my chagrin, I love stupid comedies. In fact I adore stupid action comedies. MacGruber is definitely in that category of dumb fun movies that is the source of much derision from people and is mainly seen by teens who only go to the movie to text during it, which is odd. I can see why this movie didn’t get a lot of business at the theater, I mean it’s based off of a 60 second skit from Saturday Night Live where Will Forte plays a MacGyver like characters who constantly dies at the end of an episode because of his idiocy. So taking that concept, which is funny in the small snippets of the show, and stretching it out to 90 minutes is bit daunting. So picking this movie up in the five dollar bin at Blockbuster (they still exist), I was, pleasantly surprised by this movie.
