I watch SNL every week.  I have watched every year since probably 2002.  I think it is very funny, and I enjoy it very very much.  I find Andy Samberg to be a young, fun, fresh addition to the cast, and what he and The Lonely Island have brought the last 2 years to SNL is a welcome addition.  Especially Dick in a Box and Lazy Sunday.  So when I heard, that Andy, Bill Hader (another SNL cast member) Isla Fisher, and The Lonely Island guys were a part of Hot Rod, I was going to see it in the theater, and it is that type of blind dedication that will carry you though this very very niche comedy exploration. 

Hot Rod can be described as awesomness on screen, in the sense of what awesomness means pretty much now.  A mesh of random scenes that get inspiration from the internet and the 80's, held together by a plot that is there so that we do have something to finish with at the end.   I am not totally sure what if that is a good or bad thing.  I enjoyed Hot Rod, however I didn't think it was hilarious.  

I think a lot of it was my dedication to them and the work they do.  I think everything they do is gold plated even if it is crap.  I support the SNL cast memebers and the work they do and the side projects and movies they do.  I like Isla Fisher, Will Arnett, Chris Parnell, Seth Meyers and Lauren Michaels.   So I think for those of you that are not dedicated to these people, Hot Rod is a sort of funny comedy that if you are big into the internet, will probably get it somewhat and will have a not bad time with it.  The rest of you,  probably can do without renting it.

  • This movie did not do well at my theatre. Peeking in, it didn’t really catch me, so I didn’t see it. Who knows though, I may have come in at a bad moment.

    • Like Libertie said it was really hit or miss, you might have come in in a bad moment.

  • What a letdown. Aside from one or two stunts, I don’t think I laughed at all.
