In the original SNL sketches, no on-screen explanation was provided for Kristen Wiig replacing Maya Rudolph as MacGruber's partner (the off-screen reason being Rudolph's departure from the show). The film addresses the switch by explaining that Rudolph's character died. See more »
Each time MacGruber is handling a grenade it has a blue painted top. This blue indicates that the grenades are dummies and can not explode. See more »
I'm guessing most of the people who are hating on this movie haven't seen it yet. The bottom line is that it is very funny. It definitely earned the R rating with loads of crude jokes, language, situations and content. If you like over the top humor, then this film is for you. It doesn't play out really like the SNL skits. The movie stands on its own, with MacGruber rounding up a team to take on Dieter Von Cunth. The hilarity ensues immediately, with joke after joke scoring big laughs. You will see MacGruber improvise, score with the ladies(live or dead) and get revenge on a couple occasions. MacGruber had our theater laughing hard throughout the film.
