Movies based on Saturday Night Live sketches, while funny, rarely succeed to translate well into big screen movie versions. Only classics like Wayne's World and The Blues Brothers really seem to deliver enough goods for repeat viewings. Well, we may very well add MacGruber to that short list of wildly successful SNL movies, because the new restricted trailer is funny as f@*$k!
MacGruber is, of course, the feature-length expansion of the popular Will Forte skits that have recently been featured on SNL. Ex-special operative MacGruber (Will Forte) is called back to duty to stop his arch-nemesis Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), who has stolen a nuclear warhead and is hell-bent on destroying Washington DC. To take down Cunth and save the day, MacGruber enlists the help of master of disguise Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig) and Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe), hilariously referred to in the new trailer as "human shield."
