When Jeff throws MacGruber out of Cunth's gambling room and then break's Macgruber's Blaupunkt, it is undamaged when Jeff bangs it against the window frame. But when he throws it next to MacGruber it is prominently damaged, with the housing bent way out of shape. See more »
much better than critics or reviewers tend to believe
just watched this, after many told me not to. got to say that it was well worth it. forget what every review and critic has said about this film. it's just silly fun and should be enjoyed as such. not since zoolander has an American comedy delivered such stylistically authentic humour throughout the whole film. I understand that a lot of critics have used the SNL link to belittle this movie. however, fans of SNL and those who have never seen the sketches will be mutually entertained. there is enough here to satisfy both camps. supporting cast play their roles well, which must've been hard given the sheer commitment to character that Forte and Wiig demonstrate. i'll never forget that macgruber introduced me to the concept of an "upper decker". I am the better for it.
