Synopsis

Rod Kimble (Andy Samberg), a self-proclaimed stuntman, is convinced he has bravery in his blood. He's grown up believing he's the son of Evel Knievel's test-rider, a courageous stuntman who died in his prime. Rod is committed to fulfilling his father's legacy. Only problem is--he sucks! Rod lives at home with his loving mom Marie, jerk of a stepfather Frank and nerdy stepbrother Kevin. He doesn't have a job, and can usually be found doing stunts on his moped, attempting to jump over everything from milk trucks to public swimming pools. Rod and his team--Dave, the mechanic; Rico, the ramp builder and Kevin, the team manager/videographer--are inseparable. It's almost like they share a brain. When Rod's neighbor Denise joins the team, the group's IQ virtually doubles. Rod remains optimistic in spite of the abuse he suffers from his stepfather. Frank has a penchant for beating the tar out of Rod, who just keeps coming back for more in the hopes of earning Frank's respect by besting him in one of their regular knock-down brawls. When Frank gets sick and needs a $50,000 operation, Rod attempts to raise the money by undertaking his biggest stunt ever--jumping 15 buses, one more than Evel Knievel himself ever dared. After all, he's got to get Frank all better so he can kick his butt!

Robert's Review

"Hot Rod" is a fun brain-dead movie from the folks at SNL. It's really silly and doesn't take itself seriously at all. There are many strange and oddly entertaining scenes thrown in that you can't help but smile at their charm is in their complete oddity. For instance there is a 2-3 minute scene between Rod and his friend where they just say "cool beans" over and over. You'd have to see it to really understand it, but it was pretty strange and the audience laughed like crazy. Another odd extended scene showed Rod falling down a hill for 2-3 minutes (and the hill isn't THAT long). Overall, I thought the cast did a good job at playing brain-dead characters and as strange as "Hot Rod" was, it had some laughs and I really enjoyed the underlying plot of Rod wanting to save his step-dad's life just so that when he's all better, Rod can kick his butt and earn his respect. LOL!

All in all, I'd give this movie 3 Stunts (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: LOW (maybe on cable or DVD).

Brett's Review

The boys from SNL are ready to take on the next great stunts. Yes a funny movie about a stuntman who isn't very good, but tries to live up to his father's legacy. This movie is really a brain dead type of movie but it does have some really funny moments and a good underline message. At first I wasn't really looking forward to watching this movie but after seeing it and talking with the creators and actors it took on a different tone for me. I felt that the story was interesting and the cinematography was pretty good, and the take off of a bunch of 80's movies was really funny. Overall a brain dead movie that's fun to watch when you want to veg out and not think about it.

Overall Rating: 2.5 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: Low (Veggie brain dead movie.)

Trivia: Jorma Taccone, Andy Samberg, and Akiva Schaffer made this movie between the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 seasons of "Saturday Night Live" (1975). The team started rewriting Pam Brady's script in June 2006. Filming began on July 24th and wrapped on September 23rd. The team reported back to SNL on September 25th.
