MACGRUBER THRIVES IN ANY ENVIRONMENT ‘ ‘ANY
And that includes The Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School, where the best of the best train to refine their elite flying skills and is about one thing: combat. But when MacGruber arrives it becomes about TWO things: combat ‘ and throat rips. Can Maverick handle it? Will his ego continue to write checks his body can ‘t cash? Will MacGruber, who CAN cash those checks, take the cash from those checks that he cashed, and then use that cash to check Maverick?
Look. These are impossible questions. They have impossible answers. Because, yes, Maverick is one hotshot fighter pilot, and, yes, Tom Cruise ‘s reckless attitude and cocky demeanor lets everyone know he ‘s a player in the game ‘ but ‘guess what? THE GAME HAS CHANGED.
BUT – YOU MAY SAY – THE PLAYERS ARE THE SAME
Which is why if you think the game changing with the same players doesn ‘t impact who will be the top fighter pilot, then you haven ‘t seen the decorated soldier of fortune MacGruber, who is without a doubt THE all-American hero we deserve, leap into action with his pants python and Will Forte the holy hell out of everything and everyone who stands in his way.
