Trivia

A major influence on the film was Die Hard (1988) which is director Jorma Taccone's favorite movie. Taccone actually located and used the prop C-4 explosives from that movie for action sequences in this one. In addition, Val Kilmer and Powers Boothe were both told in pre-production meetings with Will Forte and Taccone to act "like you're in a Joel Silver-produced film in 1988." See more »

Goofs

When MacGruber leaves the cemetery and sees the gray Neon in the parking lot, he starts breaking the windows while talking on the cellphone. He breaks both driver's side windows, then the rear window. The shot cuts to the Colonel with whom he is speaking. When the shot returns to MacGruber, he again breaks both driver's side windows - the rear window is still intact. See more »

Quotes

Dieter Von Cunth: You punch like a little girl.
MacGruber: Well, you're gonna walk around like a little girl. 'Cause after I disarm this nuke, I'm gonna cut off your dick and...
Dieter Von Cunth: Shove it in my mouth. You're like a broken record!
MacGruber: The only record I'm gonna break is the "amount of your own dick in your mouth" record.

Silly & Fun
2 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Very amusing movie, just have to be in a silly state of mind and not expect to much than this movie will deliver a lot. A lot of silly humour which had its affect.

This movie is crap in the best way, meaning you're watching and won't think good of it in the first minutes but it proves you wrong and you'll end up liking this even loving it.

All the characters have a issue that makes them fun to watch. This movie needs you to pay some attention to get some of the things.

i give this a 5 out of 5 stars !
