Rated 3.0

Will Forte expands his Saturday Night Live skit, a send-up of the MacGyver TV series in which Forte’s MacGruber is forever failing to defuse some bomb. It’s a one-joke premise that doesn’t sound promising stretched out to 90 minutes or so, but Forte and his co-writers John Solomon and Jorma Taccone (who also directs) turn it into a wildly profane spoof of action-espionage flicks like the Mission: Impossible series. How long has it been since an SNL movie really worked—Wayne’s World? The Blues Brothers? This one is very funny, though not for the prim or prudish—there’s a constant stream of foul language, and some of the raunchiest (and funniest) sex scenes in movie history. Ryan Phillippe, Powers Boothe and Val Kilmer play sporting straight men to Forte, while Kristen Wiig matches him at the comedy.
