Review of “HotRod-The Movie”

This is a fantastic documentary, ready for HBO.

22 April 2005 | by Vincent Rocca (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

HotRod is an excellent fun watch. It keeps you entertained from start to finish with an interesting story and lots of hilarious moments.

My eyes were glued to the screen. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. It’s really like watching a car wreck, a slow 70 minute one. It reminds you that those characters on “King of the Hill” really do exist. There is even a Boomhauer in “HotRod.” You can’t understand a word the Uncle says.

The town has a population of just under 700 and they have a fair. A FAIR, with a town of 700!! They even stage Christmas in July. Then finish off the week with a demolition derby. A derby that seems to have 35 cars in it. If you figure that half of the population is women, then 10% of the male population is competing in the derby. Amazing! This is a look in to that quaint, quirky rural hick life that my Hollywood born butt has never experienced.

HotRod is just as good as Super Size Me, or Bowling for Columbine. I can easily see this on HBO, USA, or SpikeTV. It’s definitely ready for prime-time.
