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.

In other words, MacGruber makes Coneheads look like a comic-book sequel.
