    Yea, but he flip flops so much on the rules that by the end of this, the person with the least amount of points could be the winner. Of course the actual winner could be the person that shoves a stalk of celery up his ass while wearing a Richard Dean Anderson mask!

    What's your definition of "funny"? There's a difference between things that are cute and mildly amuzing and things that cause one to burst into actual laughter.

    As much as it pains me to admit it... there's obviously a highly subjective element to "funny".

    What makes me laugh may not make you laugh and vice versa... so when I look at something and try to determine how "clever" or "funny" I think it is I try to use these gauges.

    Degree of difficulty
    You may not find Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm or Arrested Development to be "funny" but you have to acknowledge the skill with which the plots are constructed and woven together.

    Parody/Satire
    You may not find The Simpsons or South Park to be "funny" but (on fewer and fewer occasions with the Simpsons) you have to acknowledge the (sometimes admittedly low) degree to which they are successfully lampooning something.

    Fearlessness of performance
    You may not find Sacha Baron Cohen or Anthony Jeselnick to be "funny" but you have to acknowledge their fearlessness in taking a character into thoroughly unlikable waters.

    MacGruber wasn't the most brilliantly conceived story but it lampooned 80's action films flawlessly and it was utterly fearless in the lengths it would go to for a laugh and most of the jokes were clever, creative or daring enough that I would consider the "degree of difficulty" to be raised several notches above something like "Big Momma's House" or "Larry The Cable Guy : Health Inspector".

    MacGruber may not be your cup of tea but I challenge anybody to suggest that the people who made it aren't funny, aren't talented or didn't know precisely what they were making.

    **** you guys. This movie is awesome.

    Fair enough.

    MacGruber is Awetastically Fansome.

    Can't argue with that - you're a living proof that it is.

    All those what do I have to f_ _ _, whose d_ _ _ do i have to suck lines were painfully uncomfortable. Not funny awkward, just downright out of context and kind of yucky. When he was assembling the team and the big mf'r started kissing on his little twink coworker and MacGruber kept crossing his name out on the list, ok...that was the one time i actually laughed. But the celery shooting gallery walk was just another joke that just fell terribly flat. And really, even though this was based on MacGiver there was very little done with the whole concept of assembling life saving remedies out of the 'what-have-you-got-in-your-purse' deal. Very little effort or thought was put into this overall. It's typical of the 'new' SNL. Go with the first script you write. Spend very little time fleshing out actual ideas and just go for the obvious jokes and mug it up. There was NO reason for this movie. None whatsoever. Sorry Doc, this was a horrible misfire and I liked it so much better BEFORE I actually watched it. I am gonna go home and scroll through Netflix and see what I want to inflict on someone. Can all the players weigh in and say Netflix, yay or nay? Adgy don't, Doc does...what about the rest of ya?
