MacGruber Bombs, SNL Movie Curse Lives On

It was naive to think it could turn out any other way, marketing gimmicks, the show's resurgence, and Will Forte be damned. The latest Saturday Night Live skit-turned-feature film is crashing and burning, taking in a paltry $1.5 million at the box office on Friday, leaving the action parody unlikely to crack $5 million for the weekend. Not quite It's Pat numbers -- the total domestic gross of that film sits at $60,822, according to Box Office Mojo -- but still struggling to be in the same league as The Ladies Man. In other words, MacGruber makes Coneheads look like a comic-book sequel.
