I can’t decide how I feel about Saturday Night Live‘s movie version of Macgruber that is coming out May 21st. While I am a mullet lover through and through, I have a difficult time figuring out how they can make these short (but awesome!) SNL skits into a full length feature film.

The thing is, the movie seems to actually have a plot. Check out the synopsis:

Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Live’s clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action comedy MacGruber.

In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that’s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber figures he’s the only one tough enough for the job.

Assembling an elite team of experts—Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig)—MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.

I don’t think I could ever get tired of looking at Ryan Phillippe, personally, and Kristen Wiig is the funniest thing on SNL these days. I am secretly hoping that it will end up being a really hilarious action comedy, like Pineapple Express was. If that’s not reason enough to check it out, see the preview and pictures below:
