Saw this tonight. It was exactly like what you'd expect it to be. If you don't like the skits on SNL, don't waste your time. Me, I'm easily amused (especially by cussing) so I was entertained well enough. I won't buy the blu-ray, but I laughed a fair bit at a lot of really stupid things and had a fine time.

Right, can this come out on DVD already? Cineplex Odeon doesn't even carry it here in Quebec City (nazis). Not even the shitty French-dubbed version.

I wouldn't say it's a good movie, but holy shit, the jokes are really raunchy and really funny. There is some filthy comedy in MacGruber. It's totally hard R. I laughed my ass off a lot so I call it a success.

Chris Jericho, MVP, Kane, Mark Henry, The Great Khali, and The Big Show are in it too. There's not nearly enough of them, but Jericho and Show are amazingly good.

SPOILER-filled review here:

I liked it. It was ramshackle as all get-out but Will Forte had such a commitment to going for it. I thought the movie might have some real promise because it was co-written by Jorma Taccone, and there are some good Lonely Island/Hot Rod-esque bits of inspired, purposeful weirdness and setting up conventions to defy them in a surreal way. Wiig, also good, and it's plain to see why there's Oscar buzz around Jericho's performance here.

Wow. I just took a peek at Cinemaclock's listing of theatres in Quebec City. It's pathetic.

Not sure MacGruber's worth the trip down the 20 to Montreal. Your best bet would be trekking into Maine or something like that.

Oh well.

I thought this was good. It's not reinventing the wheel or anything, but it's good for what it is. The important this about this one is that it's kept well under the 90-minute mark, so the movie doesn't wear out its welcome.

Val Kilmer was a delight as Cunth, though I can't help but notice his physical appearance reminded me more of Steven Seagal than anyone else.

Easily the best SNL movie since Wayne's World, like many critics say it is. Of course, that isn't exactly a difficult height to reach.
