Trailerama: MacGruber

January 21, 2010

This sketch was pretty funny the first time around. The 17th? Not so much. Somewhere a Phd. student is pissing away their parent’s savings writing a thesis on latter-day Saturday Night Live movies. We’ll let whatever they say stand for this idiot-out-of-his-depth spin-off, complete with career-debilitating cameo (Val Kimler, not that there’s much to debilitate), past-its-sell-by-date soundtrack, nightclub scene, and rote action sequences. Kristen Wiig is gonna have to do a lot of doubletakes to save this one. Forte and his writing partner John Solomon’s script includes contributions by SNL staffer Jorma Taccone.
