Cue MacGyver Music....and Celery Jokes...
I am at some disadvantage here. I am not exactly a huge fan of the Saturday Night Live comedy show; but I have to admit I did like some of their ideas such as “Wayne‘s World” to name one. Movies based off the SNL skits are usually a miss more than a hit. I guess it would be a little too hard to expand on a subject originally only meant for a few minutes of entertainment. I am however, a big MacGyver fan and of the 80‘s action movies so I figured that perhaps I will like the …

MacGruber is the funniest SNL film since Wayne's World
Written by Will Forte, John Soloman and Jorma Taccone Directed by Jorma Taccone Starring Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Philippe and Val Kilmer    MacGruber: There's a big difference between winging it and seeing what happens.     On “Saturday Night Live”, MACGRUBER, a throwback to the 1980’s television series, “MacGyver”, is played up every now and then as a skit where a hapless dope (played happily by Will Forte) has to diffuse some bomb in …

The best thing about the "MacGruber" skits on "Saturday Night Live" is that they end after a minute, no more than a minute and a half. The writers are smart; they know that no additional time is required for us to get the joke, for us to understand that it's a parody of "MacGyver." MacGruber finds himself locked in a control room with a bomb only seconds away from detonating. He relies on his assistants for comically mundane items to help disarm the bomb. He gets distracted by something irrelevant. …
