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

best movie of all time!!

I have seen this movie around 10 or more times I would have to say and it is still my favorite. This comment is coming from a guy who also likes the movies Juno, No Country For Old Men, Superbad, Knocked Up, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and many others. Andy Samberg is my hero and maybe you may not find this movie funny, but for me, a teenage boy, I thought it was hilarious. Buy if you are young and love The Lonely Island skits, rent if you are anywhere around that age. Defidently a must see though!! :)

Pretty Much the Best Movie Ever.

Hot Rod is hilarious. You need to watch it more than once so it can all sink in. Cool beans. Let us purchase it please

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)
