MacGruber OK, my thoughts on this one are mixed. The first time I saw it, I’d had a couple of cocktails and laughed like a loon at Ryan Phillippe with celery sticking out of his ass. Giving it a second look completely sober, most of the jokes came off so painfully unfunny I found myself pity-laughing for the talented cast that I actually like a lot (Will Forte and Kristen Wiig as our heroes tasked with saving the world after swearing off the crime-fighting life, Val Kilmer as nuclear war-threatening baddie Dieter Von Cunth). Make your rental/purchase decisions accordingly, people. Extras: Commentary with Forte and writers Jorma Taccone and John Solomon, deleted scene, gag reel (DVD/BD).
New on DVD: ‘MacGruber,’ ‘Killers,’ ‘Tommy’ on Blu-ray
An editor at Fandango for seven years, Stacie has been an entertainment editor and writer since 1996, working for such outlets as Playboy, People, Movieline magazine and Hollywood.com. She loves dark comedies (Happiness, Heathers, Raising Arizona), hates the remake/reboot trend, and when she's not off at a screening, she's at the beach with her family and dog or planning her next vacation.
