Beyond Stupid

As I sat watching Hot Rod, I was constantly reminded of Napoleon Dynamite. Each have sort of a YouTube-esque feel, and they both revolve around similar characters and feature very similar humor. The primary differences between the two films is that Hot Rod has more well-known actors, a bigger budget, and very, very few successful gags. Napoleon Dynamite was no masterpiece, but it at least provided a sufficient amount of chuckles to satisfy audiences willing to accept it for what it is.

Not so cool beans.

Andy Samberg is a funny guy, but in this movie he doesn't have enough to work with. Remember the scene in 'Napolean Dynamite' where Jon Heder did a bicycle stunt with hilariously disasterous results. Well you get that bit about 30 times here. Samberg play Rod Kimble who so bad to be a stuntman and to show up his stepfather played by the bad guy from 'Deadwood' Ian McShane. Isla Fisher is wasted in the role of Rod's next door neighbor who take a liking to him and his friends.

I think with a better script and more ambition from the charaters they could have gave us a verry funny movie, this is not that movie. Even though the material is uneven this movie a few laughs, huge dumbass laughs. Nothing made me laugh harder than anything I seen in a comedy for example the scene where he falls ...
