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 »

MacGruber is Funny
22 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
