Will Forte is at it again with his Saturday Night Live MacGyver parody MacGruber, only this time he is bringing his ineptitude to the big screen. It’s a move that increases the sketches screen time from three minutes to most likely 90 minutes or so, a 2900% increase. The star power is also increased exponentially with Val Kilmer and Ryan Philippe taking large roles in the story along side current and former SNL talent Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, and Kristen Wiig. The film was directed by Jorma Taccone, who is 1/3 of hilarious musical act Lonely Island prominently featured on SNL‘s Digital Shorts.
