Familiar but not particularly inspiring.

"Hot Rod" is a very familiar story, as it's both a reworking of "Dirty Work" and is very similar to many of the recent loser does good films. However, it's told in a rather pedestrian manner and lacks the fun of other similar films, such as "Talladega Nights" and "Waterboy".

The story is a goofy tale about a total loser who manages to somehow achieve a tiny level of success by the end of the film. Andy Samberg is Rod Kimble...a guy who has no job, lives in his parents house and has an obsession with doing stunts....nearly all of which he completely misses achieving. He decides to up his game and do some PAYING stunts in order to afford to give his verbally and physically abusive step- dad a new heart.

There are several problems with the film. The first is that it just isn't written all that well. Despite being a lot like "Dirty Work" and the films I mentioned above, it replicates a VERY familiar pattern but in a completely unimpressive and not particularly funny way. I think the reason I was so unimpressed as well is because I thoroughly LOVED Samberg's "Pop Star" and know that he's capable of much more given a well written script. Overall, it's a time-passer and nothing more...mostly due to there being little in the characters to like as well as a dearth of humor.

Great Movie! Very funny!!

Connor: We saw this movie on a plane with headphones and saw the part where the Asian guy was dancing. Me and my Dad and years later it's our families favorite movie we've watched it over and over and even showed it to the rest of our family and friends and they think it's hilarious! We love it still watch it over and over. First we watched it through Netflix then we bought the movie on iTunes.

A Comedic Masterpiece

When I look back on my teens, I'm usually embarrassed by what I used to find funny. Usually it's stupid youtube videos or shows that did not age well. There is one thing from my youth that I still have fond memories of, and that's watching Hot Rod. This movie ages so well, and it's because it doesn't care about being relevant or trendy, it just cares about being stupid and funny, and it's both of those things. While the Lonely Island didn't write it, Akiva still directed a masterpiece, and Andy & Jorma acted so well off each other. I don't normally like Danny McBride but he delivered one of his best performances of his career within this movie. There's so many great jokes and hilarious moments in this movie that I'm sad that people ignore this classic. In summary, Hot Rod is the shizz.
