|01.16.11||Netflix|| People that saw this at SXSW loved it but it made no money. That's a shame because I thought this was very very funny. About a half dozen times throughout the movie I had tears in my eyes laughing and one scene in particular I couldn't even open my eyes I was laughing so hard. When MacGruber dressed Vicki St. Elmo up as him and issues ridiculously specific notes on how MacGruber orders coffee was just too much for me. Kristen Wiig's performance set it over the top. Her face saying "i'm not sorry... i'm sorry" and her look as she fishes through the tip jar were perfect, as was the kid they got to play the barista.|
Let's see. There's also the "Number one or number two? That means number two!!!" line was awesome, and the random subtitle for "that's loco, man!" was hilarious. The sex scenes were crazy and that they happened like 20 seconds apart was great. And I can't believe Ryan Phillipe agreed to place a celery stalk where he did. I wonder if he had a moment where he was like "I used to be married to Reese Witherspoon and now I'm sticking celery up my ass." Definitely a good sport though. I also don't know how he kept a straight face when MacGruber launched into his whole "I bet you wish your nose was a dick so you could stick it up guys' butts!" riff right into his face. And when he starts pleading to Val Kilmer that he's being framed and that he didn't write the manifesto. So funny...
I guess I just go for this type of humor, you know... the funny kind. I thought this was great. I hope I can remember a few of these gags and use them from now on. Not the celery one.
