Don't get me wrong; this is a bad movie. Poor acting, poor writing, childish, unimaginative; but who the hell cares??? This movie is hilarious and had me laughing throughout.

The completely carefree way in which the Lonely Island attacks this comedy is refreshing and yields surprisingly funny results. Unfortunately, that fervor, when unsupported by a meaty script, isn't quite enough to sustain a movie.

This movie delivers the laughs in a Monty Python sort of way. Lots of irreverent humor that had me laughing hard. Many quotable lines make it worth revisiting.

I rented this movie expecting to laugh..alot...the previews to this movie looked stupid funny to me. A Napoleon Dynamite-ish type humor. I was wrong. It was nothing like that. The movie itself was entertaining. Its a one time viewing movie. I can't see myself watching it again...unless its free on Encore (cable). The humor was bland...there were some laugh out loud humor as well. Cast was good. Could have used a little more humor. Overall...I give it a 2 out of 4.

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. In the case of a film like Hot Rod, even those willing to be entertained by Hot Rod on its own terms will find very little to laugh, or even smile at.

Rod Kimble wishes to be a stuntman like his late father, and is constantly doing stupid stunts. Rod is sadly inept, so many stunts end with him getti...

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 ...
