Starring: Will Forte, Ryan Phillippe, Kristen Wiig, Val Kilmer, Powers Boothe and Maya Rudolph

Story: In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that's been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth, MacGruber figures he's the only one tough enough for the job. (Rogue Pictures)

Rated: R for strong crude and sexual content, violence, language and some nudity

Bottom Line: Oh, awesome – another minor SNL sketch turned major motion picture (he types with tongue planted firmly in cheek). Yeah, I know it looks ridiculous – and it is – but they sort of make it work in a pretend-to-take-the-corny-material-and-thin-premise-seriously kind of way. It’s a silly, vulgar, easily offensive, juvenile, shocking, sophomoric, crude-mannered, present day, ‘80’s homage, comedy-action flick that’ll make your eyes both roll and tear from laughter.
