About this movie

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.

Hot rod is one of my favorite movies because it is so funny. It is great for watching with a friend, and truly amazing. The character development is astonishing, and the production quality is also really good. This is good movie to watch while you eat dinner because it tastes better (the dinner not the movie). My favorite was the scene when he almost died.

I'm writing this because the tomatometer thing surprised me. I own and have watched this movie countless times, it's the silly type of humor that's non- stop quotable, with an equally silly soundtrack that you can't help but rock out to. I mean, even for a comedy, this movie does not take itself seriously in even the remotest way, and if you're looking for some sort of mind-blowing, out-of-body experience you better keep looking, but you're missing out.

Hot Rod is a likeable comedy about an underdog overcoming their limitations, but done in a far more creative way. I don't know if I would call this a hilarious film, but it's definitely got just the right combination of charm, heart, and trashiness that will likely keep a smile on your face between chuckles. FYI, other than some language and fighting, this comedy is pretty clean to be enjoyed by most people (no nudity, gross stuff, or sexual content).
