Editorial Reviews

Amateur stuntman Rod Kimble (ANDY SAMBERG) has a problem – his step-father Frank (IAN MCSHANE) is a jerk. Frank picks on Rod, tosses him around like a rag doll in their weekly sparring sessions, and definitely doesn't respect him, much less his stunts. But when Frank falls ill, it's up to Rod to stage the jump of his life in order to save his step-father. The plan: Jump 15 buses, raise the money for Frank's heart operation, and then... kick his ass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Either you get it, or you don't. November 13, 2007
Format:DVD
I'm going to cut right to the chase. This movie has a few moments that just don't hit it home. That said, they are exactly that. Moments. This movie was not made to be "good" by any traditional standards. I've heard and read complaints about how the story is shallow, or how the character doesn't even have an age, or hometown, or job, or whatever...but who cares?

Listen..you can't watch this movie expecting to come away with some deeper meaning. There's not one there. Even I'll admit that. You can't watch American Beauty and expect to come away holding your sides. Just as American Beauty was a great film because it conveyed perfectly what it set out to convey, so to is Superbad, because it was exactly what it seemed: An '80s teen movie...that just happened to come out in 2007.

If you have a soft spot in your heart for The Breakfast Club, or even Mighty Ducks (I know, it's not an 80's movie), you will find a familiar, albeit slightly twisted home in this film. If you don't like movies with montages, or Europe music, or cut an paste dialogue music video clips, then you're right...don't see it. I didn't enjoy Fight Club...but I don't trash it, because it just wasn't my thing. It was a great movie for it's audience. So is this.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT ROD November 5, 2007
By Cadet
Format:DVD
"Yes" is my response to this movie. Finally a movie that understands what is truly important in this world: 80s music training montages, fighting people HARD, being totally awesome, and love. It's not obvious Will Ferrell jokes, or Napoleon Dynamite non-jokes, it's somewhere inbetween...and then a sharp right turn off into space. Hot Rod is its own brand of genius- the genius of The Lonely Island.

By Cubist
Format:DVD
Hot Rod marks one of the first films to feature the new generation of Saturday Night Live members with Andy Samberg and Bill Hader. It's standard practice that SNL has become a launching pad for a movie career. Do Samberg and Hader have what it takes to make that jump from the small screen to the big one? If you put Footloose (Special Collector's Edition), Napoleon Dynamite - Like, the Best Special Edition Ever!, and Nacho Libre (Special Collector's Edition) into a blender, Hot Rod would be the martini you would get.

Andy Samberg plays the eternal optimist with zero talent and tons of ambition. He's the Ed Wood of the stuntmen world. He commits himself completely to the role and is likable enough. Isla Fisher is absolutely adorable as the film's love interest and lights up the screen with her engaging smile infectious energy.

Hot Rod follows the tried and true formula of the inept underdog who doggedly pursues his goal despite a lack of any kind of talent. However, this film has a very off-kilter, staccato rhythm all its own, reminiscent of Napoleon Dynamite, that is surprisingly refreshing.

The film features unusual exchanges between characters, like when Rod asks Denise, who would win a fight: a grilled cheese sandwich or a taco, to which she replies, "In a fair fight or prison rules?" This should give you an idea of what kind of film this is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Beans! November 15, 2007
Format:DVD
Are you kidding me? How can you possibly slam this movie? It is freakin' hilarious from beginning to end!! This movie is a comedy. It will not be an Oscar nominee. It will make you laugh until your sides hurt. That's what comedies are supposed to do! If you liked The Jerk, Strange Brew, Talladega Nights, or Waterboy, you will love this movie! It is nonsense humor at it's finest! And whatever you do, I challenge you NOT to laugh at the Punch Dance! Funniest movie of 2007!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most underrated comedy of recent memory. June 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Hot Rod, along with Idiocracy, are the two most underrated comedies of the past decade. Both of these future cult classics consist of very intelligent writers/actors purposely creating "dumb" comedy. This is not to say that Andy Samberg and crew (or, Mike Judge in the case of Idiocracy) are being pandering or condescending in their embrace of stupidity. Rather, by skewering--and then amplifying--the myriad cliches of sports movies and '80s pop culture they go beyond merely tired slapstick routines and into the realm of absurd genius.

Consider the infamous "punch dancing" scene in the woods: the actors/writers understand that a guy falling down in the woods while performing a routine that pokes fun of "Footloose" isn't really that funny. (In fact, that's something that unfunny folks like the "Scary Movie" people would have done.) That same guy falling down in the woods for a full two minutes IS funny, however, because it goes far beyond reasonable expectations and in the process delves into an almost surreal world of absurdity. Plus, it's performed with such manic exuberance that you can't help but crack a smile.

Yes, the comparisons of Samberg and this movie to cinematic terrain already well trodden by the likes of Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and even Jim Carrey are all very justified. But I would argue that the Hot Rod crew brings just enough of their own unique personality to make this film seem fresh and inspired.

No matter how much praise I heap, I still realize that this type of thing is not and never will be funny to many people . . . How sad and boring those peoples' lives must be! To everyone else, please watch this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Andy Samberg is a dork
But, he's a funny dork. Between this and The Lonely Island, I think these guys are hilarious. I watch it when I need to not think about anything.

Andy Smaberg is funny in places in this movie. I was entertained and would watch it again. It would have worked better as an ongoing skit on SNL.
