MacGruber The Stars: Wille Forte, Ryan Phillippe, Val Kilmer, Kristen Wiig The Plot: Based on the “Saturday Night Live” sketch. An ex-special ops man named MacGruber is called back into action to take down Dieter Von Cunth, who has a nuclear weapon and wants to use it on Washington, D.C. The Buzz: You figured I was going to pick Shrek didn’t you? I know, the first one was great, the second one was hilarious, but the third? Yeah, that’s right, it was a stinker. So why should the fourth be any better? I don’t know. But I have already seen MacGruber thanks to SXSW. I laughed. A lot. Yes, I was surprised, but it’s a sure thing. When I tell people this they don't believe me, and I understand why. The previews don't make it look that funny, plus the advanced screening is one day before it opens at 9 P.M. That means the studio doesn't have a lot of faith in the reviews. Bad choice on their part since the SXSW screening went over so well.
Well, if I can't, maybe these interviews will convince you to see it.
