16. Hot Rod

Release Year: 2007

Director: Akiva Schaffer

Starring: Andy Samberg, Isla Fisher, Ian McShane

Rod Kimble (Samberg) thinks he is a stuntman. In reality, he is just a slacker who still lives with his mom and stepdad and who thinks his dead father might have been Evil Knievel’s back up man. Even though his stepfather is abusive, he wants nothing more than to earn his approval.

When they find out his stepfather is in need of a life-saving heart operation, Rod comes up with a stunt to raise money for it. He is going to jump over 15 school buses on his moped. He and his friends don’t even have the money to build the ramp yet.

When Denise (Fisher) returns from college, Rods plans become even more complicated. He has been secretly in love with her for years and now he feels the need to impress her as well as raise the money. Will he succeed or is public humiliation a given?
