    Did anybody notice in the trailer that some WWE wrestlers are going to be in the movie?

    No. I'm assuming John Cena will be one of them, right?

    No. In the trailer I see Chris Jericho, MVP, Mark Henry, Kane and the Great Khali (Dalip Singh from "Get smart"), at imdb I also read about the Big Show (The Rock/AC/DC from 2000, remember?).


    Cena is busy shooting own straight-to-DVD productions from time to time.

    I actually saw a pretty funny clip with MacGruber and Jericho ("Classic MacGruber!") on RAW when he and Kristen hosted the show.

    I Wouldn't Say that. (I'm Talking about her Back)



    I Know they made it as a Joke, but I wouldn't mind seeing a Regaae/Musical with Justin Timberlake/Andy Samberg "---- in a Box/ Mother Love r Characters." (Musical Roxbury?)

    I got to see an advanced screening of this movie last week, and although it wasn't great, I still enjoyed it. It falls back on profanity more than I'd like and some of the jokes got run into the ground, but Forte, Wiig, Phillipe, and Kilmer carry the movie well, and it definitely benefits from low expectations. I'd say it's the best movie based on an SNL sketch besides the Blues Brothers, Wayne's World, and Office Space, if only be default.

    So, it's better than "Superstar" and "The Ladies' Man." That works for me.

    By the way, if you visit Rotten Tomatoes, MacGruber is getting a 100% fresh rating. Obviously, it's a little early in the game, but its a trip to the ego when you can say you're more popular than any movie you can think about.

    First of all, Is anyone else starting to get tired of the Promos every 30-60 minutes?

    Second, People are saying that "It's the Best Movie since Wayne's World," Is that a Compliment? Here's what's been released since "Schwing 1"

    Wayne's World 2
    Coneheads
    It's Pat
    Stuart saves his Family
    A Night at the Roxbury
    Blues Brothers 2000
    Office Space
    Superstar
    The Ladies Man

    I saw the movie earlier tonight, and Woody's right about the using profanity as a crutch. Otherwise, it's a nice, breezy popcorn movie; most of the one-liners connect, and the gratuitous violence is played for laughs in an almost seemless manner. Pretty good soundtrack, too.

    Apparently, it did not do well yesterday, making only like 1.5 million.

    ^^The movie theatre I left about 30 minutes ago had 8 people (including myself) watching it.


    Agree with everything already said: gratuitous profanity, two over-the-top sex scenes


    However, it was a decent SNL movie. A decent screenplay from Forte, Solomon, and Taccone; directing from Taccone wasn't bad either.


    Not the 100% on Rotten Tomato, maybe 75%.

    Last I checked, "MacGruber" was earning a 58%.

    Well, this weekend, it was #6, earning only 4.1 million. And it was in over 2,500 theatres only.
