Hot Rod

Rod Kimble (Andy Samberg) has only two purposes in life: To find success as a stuntman and to use his abilities to stage a benefit show to procure a heart transplant for his jack-ass father-in-law (Ian McShane) in order to finally whoop his ass. Hot Rod is silly fun, although the laughs roll out fast and quickly dissipate. Sandberg's charm wears thin and the goofiness of the first half lends itself to something strange and not quite as funny.
