He also misses his dead dad, whom he thinks was Evel Knievel’s back-up. Rod, a man-child, believes that he is a stunt man. When his stepfather needs an operation, with help from his brother and his slacker pals, Rod hatches a plan to set a school-bus-jumping record on his moped. First, his crew and he have to raise money to rent the buses and build the ramp. Trouble is, Rod’s inept at his chosen career. Looming failure is complicated by the return of Denise, Rod’s next-door neighbor and secret heartthrob, who is home from college. Is public humiliation at hand?
Plot: For Rod Kimball, performing stunts is a way of life, even though he is rather accident-prone. Poor Rod cannot even get any respect from his stepfather, Frank, who beats him up in weekly sparring matches. When Frank falls ill, Rod devises his most outrageous stunt yet to raise money for Frank’s operation — and then Rod will kick Frank’s butt.

_**Andy Samberg plays an Evel Knieval wannabe in this fun flick**_
A brave-but-klutzy moped stuntman with a fake mustache (Andy Samberg) plans his most death-defying stunt, jumping 15 buses, to attain the money needed to save his stepfather with a weak heart (Ian McShane). Isla Fisher, Sissy Spacek, Bill Hader and Danny McBride costar.
“Hot Rod” (2007) is quirky with goofy humor, but good-hearted. There’s thankfully no raunch to be found. Samberg is effective as the protagonist while Isla is always a winsome pleasure. There’s not much else to say except this stunt comedy fills the bill when you just wanna turn off your brain for some silly fun.
The soundtrack is notable with several tracks by Europe, etc., including “You’re the Voice” by John Farnham.
The movie runs 1 hour, 28 minutes, and was shot in the general Vancouver area, British Columbia.
It was funny in some parts, but everything else felt forced and over the top.
Funny? Hell Yeah.
My wife and I saw a screening of Hot Rod. From some the comments posted here I thought we were going to be bored. Nothing could have been further from the truth. This film was really funny! So funny, that I’m wondering if the people who say they hated it actually saw the same film. No, its not fine art, its a summer comedy, and it delivers plenty of laughs. I am middle-aged guy whose not into early Adam Sandler, or Napoleon Dynamite type comedies, and this movie had me laughing hard. Sure, not at every single joke, but at most of them. If you are into absurdest humor, or enjoyed movies like Hot Fuzz, or Super Troopers, you’ll find plenty to enjoy. P.S. My wife liked it too.
I have watched this movie over a dozen times now and i can’t get enough of it. sure the jokes can be silly at times but this movie will keep you in non-stop laughter! The lonely islands Akiva Schaffer directs while Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg star, this dream trio completely perfects the movie. Bill Hader and Danny Mcbride are also excellent, sometimes pulling off the most ridiculous jokes. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone with a sense of humor. 10/10
