5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Entertainment!, 5 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Hot Rod [DVD] (DVD)
I sat down to watch 'Hot Rod' having heard nothing about it, which I suppose is often the best way to see a film. Well, the first thing that caught my attention was the soundtrack, from the very first scene to the last: Europe...brilliant! I used to listen to Europe years ago and had almost forgotten that they exist, it's great to hear them again. The entire soundtrack is like a Europe album. Anyway, the film is brilliant too! It's basically about a guy called Rod Taylor and he is a stuntman, a really bad one, and he's always trying to beat his father-in-law Frank in these fights the two of them have, and Frank constently teases him for never being able to beat him, until his heart gets bad. At this point Rod decides that the only way to be able to beat the hell out of Frank is to attempt to jump fifteen buses to raise the money needed for Franks heart operation. This way, Frank can get better and the two of them can get it on, so Rod can prove once and for all that he's got what it takes to beat the holy hell out of Frank!

I laughed my head off all the way through, Hot Rod is easily the funniest, most enjoyable comedy I've seen for years, in fact I loved it so much that I went and got myself a US region 1 version as I couldn't wait for it to come out in the UK. So if you want to see a film that makes you laugh (a lot!) and has the added bonus of an excellent soundtrack, then see Hot Rod, it's brilliant!
