MacGruber (2010) is a parody of the 1985-1992 adventure series MacGyver created as a skit for Saturday Night Live.  The movie starts with Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer),  taking control of  a nuclear warhead. Next is a  scene taken  from a Rambo movie. Col. Jim Faith (Powers Boothe) with his side kick Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) go to at a monastery and try to recruit MacGruber (Will Forte) to get the warhead back. The plot develops from there with lots of one liners, just think of why they named the villain Cunth.

Macgruber is devolved from a skit, never a good sign for a movie. They took 30 minutes of material and stretched it a little too far.

Your god can’t save you, but I can.

Did laugh at a couple of the jokes the first time, it about a hour too long—03—10
