    When viewing a movie as silly as 'Hot Rod,' one must sit back, relax, and alter one

    Isla Fisher wasted in the stupidest movie I have ever seen. Sad to see the fat guy from All the Real Girls sink so low just to make a few bucks.

    I WOULD give this movie a 0, but I believe they should at least get a 1 for the uh...effort. Now, with that out of the way, I'd rather listen to Fall Out Boy while getting beaten with a stick.

    I give a 0 for this website. Why is it that they say there are 27 user reviews and only 5 show and there is no link to see the rest. There is a link only to discuss this in the user forum. I have complained about this before and it never was fixed. Of course, we see EVERY single critic review which to me is useless. I want to hear from normal people who go to the movies just to have fun. I give a 0 for this website.

    What a sick minded film. So stupid predictable and so frustrating to watch. They spoiled all the humor in the trailer.

    I was fortunate enough to have a friend that got us tickets to an advanced screening of Hot Rod. We went into the movie with exceptionally low expectations and were still disappointed. This movie attempts to carry a slapstick, goofball humor and fails miserably. This is by far the worst film i have ever had to sit through. Even though i did not have to pay for the movie, i still walked I was fortunate enough to have a friend that got us tickets to an advanced screening of Hot Rod.

  1. Hot Rod is a stupid movie about stupid people doing stupid things.
  2. Unfortunately, the gags start to wear thin shortly around the 15-minute mark, not to mention the fact that they pale in comparison to the real-life indignities endured by the members of the "Jackass" crew.
