The gang gets in and out of ultra sticky situations this week as we review the hard-R rated SNL movie, MacGruber (2010) starring Will Forte, Kristin Wiig, and Ryan Phillipe. Arguably one of the better SNL sketch series made into a feature length movie, MacGruber is 80's/90's action movie trope after trope, with ridiculous, dirty, foul mouthed comedy peppered throughout. And with Val Kilmer and  Powers Booth in supporting ro...
