Hot Rod Review
Someone named Carrie Keagen who works for something called NGTV.com had this to say about Hot Rod, words that appear on the DVD case: "The funniest film I've seen in years!"
If that's an honest statement, one has to assume that the only "films" Carrie sees are Holocaust documentaries. Yet another turd in the vast bowl of Saturday Night Live alum comedy features, Hot Rod weaves the story of a discount Knievel-esque daredevil, played annoyingly by Andy "Dick in a Box" Samberg. In fact, Rod's late father used to work for the late Evel (a dated gag reference at best), and now — guess what? — he's gonna prove his worth and follow in the old man's footsteps.
His bully of a stepfather, portrayed by Deadwood's great Ian McShane, needs a $50,000 heart transplant, so Rod decides to pull a big stunt to earn the bread, thus keeping stepdad alive so Rod can finally kick his ass. Hooked yet?
The film borrows heavily (or attempts to) from Napoleon Dynamite, but fails miserably. Scripted by Pam Brady, the brain behind the Web's questionably humorous Mr. Wong show, Rod comes off as a sad rip of Jackass, minus the funny parts.
So let's talk about something important. What did YOU think about it?
