Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good It's funny pretty much all the way through,... The movie is funny because it is sincere. It likes Rod. It doesn't portray him as a maniacal goofball, but as an ambitious kid who really thinks, every single time, that he will succeed.

USA Today Full Review
Average The film has a few mildly funny moments, but not enough to call this a bona fide comedy. Even to label it sophomoric and predictable seems an understatement. It feels like a protracted Saturday Night Live sketch, one that wouldn't have been particularly funny had it been five minutes long.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 43 moviegoers:It was a struggle to collect even 43 moviegoer reviews from the young crowd seeing this movie.
TEENS:"Hot Rod" is clearly targeted at teen males and about half of them truly enjoyed it rating it "Very Good," or higher. Fortunately, most of the remaining half rated it "Good," which indicates an OK/average movie. Since about 90% enjoyed "Hot Rod," at least to some degree, I have no problem recommending it to teens, especially males.
EVERYONE ELSE:A few older moviegoers enjoyed it very much but as the age increases the reviews go down quite a bit. Still, about half the adult males and three-quarters of the adult females rated it as an OK/average movie, or better and very few truly disliked it. So, if this looks like your type of movie then chances are pretty good that you will find it, at least somewhat, enjoyable.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Rod Kimble (Samberg), a self-proclaimed stuntman, is convinced he has bravery in his blood. He's grown up believing he's the son of Evel Knievel's test-rider, a courageous stuntman who died in his prime. Rod is committed to fulfilling his father's legacy. Only problem is…he sucks!

Rod lives at home with his loving mom Marie (Sissy Spacek), jerk of a stepfather Frank (Ian McShane) and nerdy stepbrother Kevin (Jorma Taccone.) He doesn't have a job, and can usually be found doing stunts on his moped, attempting to jump over everything from milk trucks to public swimming pools. Rod and his team – Dave (Bill Hader), the mechanic; Rico (Danny McBride), the ramp builder and Kevin, the team manager/videographer – are inseparable. It's almost like they share a brain. When Rod's neighbor Denise (Isla Fisher) joins the team, the group's IQ virtually doubles.

Rod remains optimistic in spite of the abuse he suffers from his stepfather. Frank has a penchant for beating the tar out of Rod, who just keeps coming back for more in the hopes of earning Frank's respect by besting him in one of their regular knock-down brawls. When Frank gets sick and needs a $50,000 operation, Rod attempts to raise the money by undertaking his biggest stunt ever – jumping 15 buses, one more than Evel Knievel himself ever dared. After all, he's got to get Frank all better so he can kick his ass!
