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 the guy in the gray Neon yells at Macgruber (when he first sees the car), the car is an SRT-4 neon, and when he sets the car on fire, it is an SXT neon. See more »
I saw this movie last night and it was absolutely hilarious. I wasn't a fan of the sketch on SNL and was scared off by the poor reviews and its box office failure, but let me tell you this movie is really, really funny. I suppose its not for all tastes and it was a lot raunchier than I anticipated. If you are from my generation and grew up on an action diet of Sly Stallone, Arnold, Van Damme and Seagal, you will definitely appreciate the humor in this flick. It does a terrific job spoofing that genre. There is a very funny Road House reference as well, but I wont spoil it for you. Well worth watching. Don't be turned away by the poor reviews. I have a feeling when this one goes to DVD it'll have a cult following. The best comedy since Step Brothers. A shame it performed poor at the box office, because it could have made a terrific franchise.
