DATE REVIEWED: 05/25/2017

TITLE: Hot Rod

FORMAT: HD-DVD

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 30 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 19.2 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 6781.2 miles

SYNOPSIS: An older teen living at home attempts to recapture of the glory of his dead father who was a stunt man.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: What the SNL crew does in their time off.  Some of the sight gages are hilarious.

PROS AND CONS:  A great film if you are a male, approximately 12 to 17 years of age.  Otherwise, most of this film is pretty cringe worthy.  The target audience is clear and they drill home the themes of the film to them.  

The film is a series of sight gags strung together into a plot, which really becomes secondary to the visuals of the film.  

The stunt and comedy scenes are well done and funny as all hell, but then we have to watch Adam Sandler move the plot forward another 12 hours before the next ROFLOL moment.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
