MacGruber to the Big Screen?

I'm trying to settle in for an hour or two of blogging, but the birthday celebrations were pretty rough, so let's start with something light. One of my favorite SNL sketches right now, MacGruber, could be heading to the big screen. As you probably know, the sketches are little knockoffs of McGyver, and I find them hilarious. Some people don't like them however, and it's kind of a love it or hate it sketch. 

In fact, of all the news articles I've seen regarding this little tidbit of news, none of them think a MacGruber movie would be a good idea. It'd be interesting to see how they'd take one joke and turn it into a 90 minute film, but that's the challenge SNL has with all it's sketches turned movies. Sometimes it works (Wayne's World), sometimes it fails miserably (Night at the Roxbury). If the idea of a MacGruber movie did take shape though, I'd be there on opening night for sure. What do you guys think? Would you pay 10 bucks to watch MacGruber dominate the big screen for two hours?
