First look at new SNL 'Macgruber' pictures

Jan. 6, 2010by:

SNL skits stretched to feature length. Sometimes they work, right? WAYNE'S WORLD, THE BLUES BROTHERS, um...

Maybe MACGRUBER will stand apart from movies like THE LADIES MAN, IT'S PAT and STUART SAVES HIS FAMILY. Early word is that it's surprisingly funny and completely ridiculous, one of which describes Will Forte's chosen hairstyle.

Some pics and synopsis:Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Live's clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action comedy MacGruber.

In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that's been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber figures he's the only one tough enough for the job.

Assembling an elite team of experts--Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig)--MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber
.

Extra Tidbit: Ryan Phillippe? Huh.

You know, I'm quite intrigued by this. I actually want to see a completely cheesy spy mystery or whatever. As long as his logic makes no sense and other people scoff at him, I'll laugh.

I LOVE THIS!

I love how the cast is rounded out. This is gonna be one of those movies you can watch over and over again because it's so stupid-funny.

I'd Love it if Richard Dean Anderson (the real macgyver and one hell of a comedic genius)could make an appearance!

I just think Ryan Phillippe makes it 10x funnier. I mean, why Ryan Phillippe?

SURPRISINGLY funny?

With Will Forte starring, and Jorma Tacone directing, how is it surprising that this is going to be funny? This is gonna be great!

Anyone else not holding their breath for Kristen Wiig to do something other than her "schtick"? I mean, ever.

I disagree. She's not always funny, but I think she's pretty versatile.

Ooh...

...I dunno, while the skits themselves were fairly humourous even those sometimes felt like they ran on for too long, can this really be turned into a full length film?

I guess we'll see, but for my money I'll just wait until it comes out on DVD or BR...

Ladies Man > Wayne's World

I loved Wayne's World as much as the next kid when it came out, but it doesn't really stand the test of time. It's pretty hard to get through most of it now, too cheesy and gimicky. Ladie's Man is no classic, but it's the smartest, most consistent SNL movie besides The Blues Brothers.
