I’m torn with MacGruber. On one hand I did my fair share of laughing. It’s ridiculous and silly and you get to see Ryan Phillipe put a piece of celery in his butt. On the other hand it’s yet another SNL extenda-sketch with very little consistency, continuity, or rhythm. There are hilarious moments and stupid moments, and it’s hard to say which way the scale shifts. I can see a lot of people walking out of the theater perfectly happy with their experience. Certainly the conversations I’ve had suggest low expectations; all most folks are looking for are some hard laughs, and the film has it’s fair share. But the experience of MacGruber seems a little empty. It’s like cereal without milk. Still good, but you’re pretty aware that something’s missing.
