What works as a "Saturday Night Live" skit isn't always as effective when blown up to feature-film length, as proved again by this spinoff of the sketches that parody the troubleshooting television character MacGyver.
Will Forte - also the picture's co-writer - plays the hero whose lady love (fellow "SNL"-er Kristen Wiig) becomes a pawn of the master villain ( Val Kilmer) being pursued by MacGruber. Ryan Phillippe, Powers Boothe and Maya Rudolph also star. ** (R and unrated versions: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
