Hurry up! The MacGruber trailer is here!

01.19.2010

The new red-band (it's actually orange-band unless my monitor's color settings are off) trailer for MACGRUBER is here and now you can finally figure out how they expanded the relatively one-note SNL sketch to a movie! In actuality there is a plot and the camera work (directed by Jorma Taccone of Lonely Island fame) is surprisingly sharp. What's also somewhat surprising is the lack of connection to the SNL sketch. Are they trying to distance themselves? I fully expected a pay-off at the end similar to how the sketches end but not so much.

So what do you think? Does it work for you? I definitely got a few laughs out of it but I don't know that I was ROFLing. The trailer will be in theaters this weekend with LEGION so you'll be able to check it out then as well. Watch the trailer (and check out some new pics!) below:

ehhh

Might check it out at the local 3 dollar theater or something. Didn't look terrible, but I can't imagine it being very good.

i cant be the only one excited about this. . yeah, snl has put out some crappy movies, but this seems to take what is so great about the macgruber sketches, the ridiculous humour, while also giving a good story to it and even some action. i cant wait

Gas!

There was a little bit inside of me that wanted to find this funny. But I didn't. At all. To be fair I cracked a smile at the name Dieter Von Cunth, and Val Kilmer can be pretty damn funny. The rest of the trailer is gas.

Hmmm...it actually made me laugh a couple times. Which is strange because I can't remember the last time something that spawned from SNL actually made me laugh...prolly "Dick in a Box."

looks dumb...

but for some reason, I was still digging it. I know it's stupid, but the wires thing on the missile made me laugh a lot more than it should have.

Nice. I admit I had my doubts, but I'm liking the direction they are taking this. They are definitely smart to take it in a more "Lethal Weapon" direction than a "Loaded Weapon" direction...if that makes sense.

Doesn't look bad..

I did actually chuckle a couple of times (i.e. "Im in" line, and the "have fun getting date raped" line"). Plus the last couple of lines with the nuke was funny. And also, a Val Kilmer movie that actually looks good....FINALLY!!! Maybe this is the start of his film resurrection.

Ok, ok...

Cool

I'll see it just for Val Kilmer's pony tail. MEH! I like the last few lines in the trailer when he's checking out the nuke.

Huh

Better than I was expecting. We all know SNL's track record with movies (outside of Wayne's World), but this looks like it could be amusing.


Color me cautiously optimistic.
