About the Movie

Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live) stars as Rod Kimble, a stunt man with a fake mustache and a dream, in this outrageous comedy so unpredictable you won't know what hit you! Rod has never landed a jump without wiping out. His family and friends think he’s a joke. And, to top it off, his stepfather Frank uses him as his own personal punching bag. But he's not going to let a few minor problems keep him from the biggest stunt of his life! Co-starring Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers) and Ian McShane (Shrek the Third), Hot Rod is "very, very funny from start to finish"* and scales the heights of hilarity as Rod defies death to win the money, win the girl and, ultimately, win some respect.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: If you're looking for plausibility, this is not your movie. If you're looking for laughs, this is not your movie. If you like seeing delusional overgrown adolescents fall down a lot, then this one's for you. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Sep 19, 2008

Fresh: There's something that seems almost important about this picture. The creators have harnessed everything that's good about YouTube, and translated it into a big-screen movie. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 4, 2007

Rotten: Most of the jokes either drag on endlessly or are cut short without a real punch line. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Aug 4, 2007

Rotten: Started to go bad about the time someone in casting said, "You know what? I'll bet America is just about ready for the comedy stylings of Sissy Spacek." – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jul 16, 2008

this is one of the funniest movies i have ever seen, but you can only rent it. They should at least give you the option to buy it also.

One of the funniest movies of all time

A stupid storyline, Andy Samberg, fake mustaches, explosions, and fighting grilled cheese. What can you NOT like about this movie?! This is for fans of Napoleon Dynamite, though I must warn the younger fans of the movie, there is cursing in this (note the PG-13)


YouTube and little stupid skits on SNL are not the future of the motion picture industry. There's no talent here. The comedy seems to have been inspired by the scene in The 40-Year-Old Virgin when Carell's character flips into the semi-truck on his bike. That's all this film is. It's "here I go" and once at the part where I jump the obstacle "oops" and I fail. BIG LAUGHS!!! HA HA!!!!!! It's stupid. It's repetitive. It's a complete waste of time and money. The drama with the father-figure-in-need-of-surgery-but-don't-have-the-money-or-the-means-to-help-him are all boring cliches from half of all the other non-serious shtick sports films out there, and they do it much, much better than this lame flick. The writing and directing are mediocre. It seems they thought if we get a lot of slapstick, it'll disguise the overall crap that is this film. The acting is mediocre and should've stayed on YouTube and SNL. I see, almost, none of these people having a future film-career after this mess. Do not buy or rent this retarded movie.
