You guys were pretty split on your excitement for the MacGruber movie when I asked a few weeks ago, but maybe the trailer will help you decide. In this first peek at the film, we see our bumbling "hero," MacGruber (Will Forte) called in to track down a Russian nuclear warhead. Ryan Phillippe and Kristen Wiig are his sidekicks. As expected, MacGruber manages to put himself in compromising situations, makes absurd remarks, and seems to have relatively little experience or skill (socially and otherwise).
The trailer's goofy to say the least, but it's not entirely cringe-inducing — I even chuckled at a few of the back-and-forth quips between MacGruber and the villainous Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer). On the other hand, I don't think I've ever seen a MacGruber skit on SNL that I wanted to watch for a full hour and a half, so I'm still a little skeptical about the film as a whole. What say you?
To check out the trailer for yourself (warning: it's red band and a little NSFW), just
