Trivia

Lee David Zlotoff, creator of the TV series MacGyver (1985), felt that his legal right to make a film version of his series was compromised with the release of MacGruber (2010). His lawyer sent several cease-and-desist letters to the production company and met with litigators although ultimately, no legal action was taken. See more »

much better than critics or reviewers tend to believe
17 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

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.
