    Is Macgruber supposed to be a spoof off of Macgyver? It certainly feels that way to me when I watch the trailers.

    The very first skit made me laugh, but all of the ones after that were just basically the same exact skit performed slightly differently. It was the element of surprise (MacGruber getting cut off mid-sentance with the bomb exploding) that was funny the first time. After that you knew what was going to happen, so it seemed pointless.

    Obviously the film is going to have more to it (one would assume) but I can't really say I'm excited for it.

    Probably wouldn't have made me laugh either. But that would require actually watching SNL, which I haven't done in years.

    I heard it was pretty good. So far it has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. I'm sure it will drop soon but it will probably still be good.

    And such is the history of SNL, and SNL movies based on a one-joke character.

    But if they made a Missgruber movie, I would watch that. I would watch that a lot.
