Consensus: It too often mistakes shock value for real humor, but MacGruber is better than many SNL films -- and better than it probably should be.

A film that poses a philosophical question fundamental to our inquiry here, namely: "Why does this exist?"

James Berardinelli

While it would be unfair to saddle MacGruber with the "worst SNL movie of all-time" moniker (I can think of at least two that are more painful to endure), its place on the vaunted 2010 Worst 10 list is assured.

This comedy is an absolute waste of time and easily the worst movie of 2010.

Some of these two minute sketches look a little thin at 87 to 92 minutes.

MacGruber is by no means a work of genius, or a piece of art, or even very good. But Forte and company have managed to make crude and lewd dunderheadedness laugh-out-loud funny here and there, and that, I guess, is something of an achievement.

It's not just him badly defusing bombs over and over. It's much stupider (and smarter) than that.

You need a great character to make a bad thing good, and the action comedy MacGruber is sadly short on great characters.

Dana Stevens

There's a conceptual flaw at this movie's heart: By the very nature of the sketch, MacGruber can't succeed on the big screen.

Bereft of any kind of laughs or remote giggles when not blatantly ripping off the Austin Powers mold...

Such a great transformation of MacGruber from SNL to the big screen. Highly recommended for fans of the MacGruber segments on SNL. Forte & Wiig together in… More

Yea, it's incredibly stupid. It has a bad beginning, but this movie is freaking hilarious! Being a fan of the Saturday Night Live MacGruber skits, I sort… More
