1.5 of 4

“..this adaptation misses even the most obvious of opportunities. What's left is as pieced together as one of its heroes many "gadgets"..”
by Joe Lozito [Big Picture Big Sound]
4 of 5

“..The spirit of Frank Drebin lives on..”
by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film]
Review rate : B+

“..The R-rating is welcome here, shaping a filthy funhouse environment to go along with the spurts of comedic violence, making "MacGruber" more of a rollicking good time than it had any right to be..”
by Brian Orndorf [BrianOrndorf.com]

“..that ain't funny..”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]
“..prepare to laugh your ass off..”
by John P. Meyer [Pegasus News]
2.5 of 4

“..MacGruber" is the best movie based on a "Saturday Night Live" sketch since "Wayne's World"..”
by L. Kent Wolgamott [Lincoln Journal Star]
3 of 4

“..MacGruber breaks the jinx by putting the skit in the context of a 1980s action movie and creating its own brand of explosive lunacy..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..Hmm. Stink: The Movie. Oh wait; that's already been made..”
by Rob Salem [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..Funny as it sometimes is, MacGruber is still a comedy for people juvenile enough to laugh at every f-bomb as though it's the first time they've ever heard a word that naughty..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..easy to watch and consistently funny, even if it is as substantial as a merengue..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]
2.5 of 5

“..Celebrating the fine art, and the very small sub-genre, of the pyrotechnically fuelled action comedy, MacGruber blows stuff up - but it doesn't blow - marking one of the bigger surprises of the summer movie season..”
by Katherine Monk [Canwest News Service]
“..All thing considered, "MacGruber" is a lot better than it should be. That still doesn't mean it's all that great..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“.."Saturday Night Live"-derived '80s spoof does its best with very thin material..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
