Joining such Saturday Night Live-skit-to-movie movies as The Blues Brothers, Waynes World, Coneheads, and The Ladies Man, is MacGruber. Directed by SNL writer and current Lonely Island member Jorma Taccome, MacGruber is action comedy about an ex-special ops agent played by Will Forte who is called on by his country to apprehend his sworn enemy Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer). After Von Cunth threatens to destroy Washington DC with a stolen nuclear warhead, MacGruber assembles a crack team of fellow SNL cast members Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph to save the country.
What’s that you say? Who is MacGruber? If you’ve never of him, then let me explain. Imagine MacGyver with a significantly lower IQ. It’s as simple as that. Now give him a bomb to defuse and hilarity ensues. I recomend you look up the MacGruber skits from Saturday Night Live to get to know him better. MacGruber is scheduled to release on May 21.
