HOT ROD is an uproarious comedy starring SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE regular Andy Samberg.
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!
Living at home with his loving mom Marie (Sissy Spacek), jerk of a stepfather Frank (Ian McShane) and nerdy stepbrother Kevin (Jorma Taccone), Rod doesn't have a job but 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 is an optimist despite the abuse he suffers from his stepfather, Frank. So 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!
