Hot Rod Review


Rod Taylor is a stuntman, just like his father was, before he died in an accident. His step-father, Frank, doesn�t respect and tells him he never will, at least until he can whip Frank�s ass in a fight.

One day, Rod learns his step father has a heart condition and needs expensive surgery to fix the problem. His solution, to jump 15 buses, raising the money for the Frank�s surgery. Then, after Frank has the surgery and is healthy, he�ll be able to kick Frank�s ass and finally win his respect. Of course, along the way, there will be pitfalls and obstacles to overcome.

The stunts are poorly set-up and almost always wind up with Rod getting hurt. The injuries he sustains are reminiscent of a Bugs Bunny film, as he�ll hit a wall full on and get up without a scratch. You�ll surely feel at least a little bit of schaudenfraude (joyful glee) at his misery, but like a car accident, you just can�t seem to look away.

If I had to compare this to any movie in recent memory, I�d say it�s this year�s Napoleon Dynamite. The actors are mostly no-names and the humour is odd and eclectic. The music is dated (80s mostly) and most of the cast are society�s cast-offs.
