Hot Rod: Bringing Sexy Back

Now I don't wanna sound like one of those super-indie music lovers... but I was a fan of thelonelyisland well before "Dick In a Box" or even "Lazy Sunday". Yes, I knew about them and enjoyed their antics back when they were just a few crazy "dudes" up to no good. Maybe that's why I loved their new movie Hot Rod so much.

I don't know what movie the reviewers were watching, but I thought it was a hilarious, nonstop, 24/7 - 69. It had just enough callbacks to their independent days to keep their long time fans satiated, and enough crazy dope slap silliness to entertain even Ebenezer Scrooge.

I was very excited to see that Chester had a role in the film. Although it was a small one, he filled it perfectly and added a little extra sexyness to work as a whole. Will Arnett is a bit underutilized but is quite a charm while on screen. Andy Sambergs' physical comedy and outrageous facial expressions are classically hilarious and the absurdity of the whole movie makes it that much more entertaining. The trailers promised that "He’ll land the jump, get Frank better, and then fight him, hard" and it delivers just that.

Overall it was a really good movie and well worth the raping movie theaters charge theses days... and I'm pretty sure I would have thought that even if I didn't stalk The Dudes' every move...
