MacGruber is a 2010 American action comedy film based on the Saturday Night Live sketch of the same name, itself a parody of action-adventure television series MacGyver. Jorma Taccone of the comedy trio The Lonely Island directed the film, which stars Will Forte in the title role; Kristen Wiig as his love interest/partner, Vicki St. Elmo; Ryan Phillippe as Dixon Piper, a young lieutenant who becomes part of MacGruber's team; Maya Rudolph as MacGruber's dead wife, Casey; and Val Kilmer as the villain, Dieter von Cunth.
Originally scheduled for release on April 23, 2010, the film was instead released on May 21, 2010, and was a box office bomb, only grossing $9.3 million worldwide against a $10 million budget. The film also received mixed reviews from critics, with the main point of criticism being the film's use of crude humor and vulgarity. Despite this, the film has since been labeled a cult classic.
