Hot Rod, 2007. Two and a Half Stars.
I LOVE THE LONELY ISLAND.
But, this is not a Lonely Island movie. There are FUNNY parts and lots of little gems. The Dudes did a great job taking over this movie that was meant to star someone else. But still, sometimes the story and dialogue felt forced and flat. I would love to see what The Dudes could come up with if given the chance to do their thang.
Akiva's cameo was pretty funny! I think he's a good director, I like his music videos and seeing his movie work was pretty cool!
Also, what a surprising and good cast!
And, CHEZ!!! I'd imagine that his appearance in the film might seem random, but if you're familiar with Chester Tam, YOU LOVE IT LIKE I DO.
(If you're curious, this is still one of my favorite Chez videos, featuring Kal Penn and Superman.)
I enjoyed this interview with them. I wish I could hang out and drink beers and make fart jokes with them.
