Not all comedies need to become instant classics -- especially not when they're in the SNL-related canon -- so this film's aim is overambitious but true, earning it a rank far above Superstar or Black Sheep but below Tommy Boy or Happy Gilmore.
Audience Reviews for Hot Rod

One of my favorite car movies of all time... I have always loved old Willy's and they sure did a great job with this on in the movie.... Some people get this confused with the Hot Rod movie that just came out a couple years ago because there is no image showing here.. This is the made for TV movie from 1979 and its a kick ass movie for a old one that is...
