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]

LATEST REVIEWS

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]

THE CHRISTMAS PARADE :

“..the movie takes the standard "girl has wrong boy, girl gets right boy" story and simply fills in the blanks..”
by Tom Conroy [Media Life Magazine]

NICK OFFERMAN: AMERICAN HAM :

“..a solid comedy special--with stylish prerecorded title sequences for each new Tip--but it lacks some of the inventiveness or surprise..”
by Kyle Burton [indieWIRE]

AFTER THE FALL :

“.."After the Fall" belongs to a type of movie that is too lazy to connect the dots and fill in the blanks between its supposedly teachable moments..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]

THE COLOR OF TIME :

“..for all the experimentalism of its conception, falls some way short here, and ends up an irreproachably tasteful, easily digestible but an unsurprising, undemanding watch..”
by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist]
