Did You Know?


Will Forte refused a body double for the controversial sex scene between MacGruber and Vicki St. Elmo. However, he surprised Taccone by expressing some discomfort at the number of people who were on-set at the time. Taccone then said he didn't know Forte cared about being naked in front of strangers.

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 »


MacGruber: All right, we got a nuclear warhead to... Holy shit!
[sees a mass of confusing wires inside the missile nose-cone]
Vicki St. Elmo: What's wrong, MacGruber?
MacGruber: What the fuck is this!
Lt. Dixon Piper: lt's a warhead, MacGruber. You can defuse it, right?
MacGruber: Are you kidding me? Look at all this crap. There's, like, a million wires in here. l'm more like a three-wire guy.

More than I expected.
21 May 2010 | by mngo228See all my reviews

I have to admit, I wasn't to enthusiastic about this movie when I went to see it. I thought it was gonna be a fail. But I was wrong. I haven't seen a pointless comedy in so long that was actually funny. I would highly recommend this to anyone, but if you're one that has a stick up your rear, then I wouldn't recommend it. This wouldn't be for anyone that has a sour attitude that can't laugh at random things or their own jokes. But if you are the type that's kinda immature and can laugh at random things, it's for you! Also, there are more funny things than what the preview shows. Take your bros out to watch this cuz more than likely it's nothing for the ladies, unless they have a dude sense of humor!
