Right, where was I?
Rod Kimble is a wannabe stuntman, trying to live up to the legacy of his dead father (who he believes was a stuntman) and also win the respect of his Stepdad, Frank (Ian McShane) by kicking his ass. When he hears Frank is dying, he gets angry when he realises that Frank may die before he can kick his ass, and therefore sets out to raise money for an operation that will save his life.
Full of ridiculous situations and, well, that's about it.. Hot Rod is a lot of fun and I don't think I've laughed as hard watching a film since I saw Pineapple Express at the cinema.
Well worth a watch, only a fiver from HMV - AND it has Europe for most of the soundtrack!
Normally I steer well clear of John Waters movies, I don't know why, but the bloke just creeps me out.. But a rockabilly musical starring Johnny Depp? Eh, why not.
Needless to say, I FUCKING LOVED THIS MOVIE. Think Grease (as far as the Greasers - or "Drapes", as they're called in this film - and Squares go..) with better songs, a better cast and no weird guilty feeling you get from staring at Olivia Newton John in leather trousers.
David Lynch's latest weirdfest is 3 hours long, the DVD has no chapters and at the end you'll be as clueless as you were after the first 15mins.
But it's artsy 'n shit and I do quite like the Lynchmeister (yes, I actually just said that).
Can't really "/10" it though as I just don't know..
Eh, you've all seen it. It fucking rules.
