MacGruber is a 2010 action comedy film based on the recurring Saturday Night Live skit of the same name. The evil Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer) and his group of terrorists have seized the X-5 missile and are planning on using it for great destruction. The only man who can bring Cunth to justice is Ranger MacGruber (Will Forte), but he has vowed not to return to active duty in the United States. While soul searching in Ecuador, however, MacGruber is convinced to return when he learns that it is Cunth behind the treacherous act. MacGruber begins to return with Col. Jim Faith (Powers Boothe) and Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and build a team to retrieve the missile. MacGruber's new team unfortunately explodes and he must work with Faith, Piper, and his old friend Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig). MacGruber and his newly formed team then must devise a plan to take down Dieter Von Cunth and save the world.moreless

    Los Angeles Times

    While this jury-rigged exercise may not be an explosion of laughs, it's no dud, either.

    Variety Joe Leydon

    How much mileage can a comedy get from a single joke? Quite a bit, judging from the guffaws-to-groaners ratio in MacGruber.

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    The law of diminishing returns is enforced so stringently that the movie succeeds not only in negating its own comedy, but its very being.
