    Don't have Netflix anymore, but have everything on DirecTv including on demand, a 1500 dvd collection and Redbox

    But you think Hangover 2 was "better" because Stu ****s a Bangkok ladyboy?

    Ok, my problem with the first Hangover was that it didn't go far enough. Sure...they had misadventures, but everyone made it out relatively unscathed. Part 2, was darker and there were more consequences(not enough still, but there were some). And it's not that I don't enjoy off humor, I kinda am on record as quite a fan, I just thought that the attempts in MacGruber were painfully out of context and forced/unfunny. It felt like they looked at what they had and said, let's punch it up with some gay stuff, almost insultingly. Just felt the entire tone of the movie was half baked(now there's a damned funny movie). There are always issues with these 90 minute 'skit' movies, but this one just suffered terribly from them. So yeah, I can defend Ladies Man, Coneheads etc because they actually had depth(YES I WROTE THAT), this one just seemed like the script was written on a coctail napkin.

    And thanks for working in our long delayed H1 vs H2 argument.

    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.
    I didn't mind MacGruber, it was better than I was expecting. Though I must admit I had low expectations, even though I dig Forte and almost everything he ever did on SNL.

    But I just wanted to chime in and say Anthony Jeselnik ALWAYS kills.
