Hot to Trot is a movie to make ninnies whinny, audiences gag and horses hide their heads.
It`s true that there has been a shocking dearth of talking-horse pictures lately, but even so, Hot to Trot has few pleasures to offer.
The humor is so low that it could justifiably be called subterranean.
I am not going to try to tell you that this one-joke, talking-horse comedy is, in any meaningful sense, a good movie. What I am going to say is that it's a little better than my rock-bottom expectations led me to predict.
Although Michael Dinner's direction is noticeably better than the material, the film aims consistently for the lowest common denominator.
Hot to Trot is an unbridled disaster, a screwball horseplay so lame you want to put it out of its misery. Equus is funnier.
A justifiably notorious bomb...
The old talking-animal routine gets a bit of an update in that this time the animal is vulgar and profane in a way Mr. Ed or Francis the Talking Mule would never have been. But that's about the extent of the inventiveness in this unfunny comedy.
[Hot to Trot] sounded truly awful. It turned out to be worse.
Confused and confusing.
I'm still marvelling that I've actually seen this
Bobcat Goldthwait and a talking horse. Go nuts.
I loved Bobcat, but these horses can't act! I enjoyed this silly comedy anyway. It's got a lot of funny jokes, so I found it entertaining even thought the horses got on my nerves from time to time.
Pure cheesy goodness. A childhood fave, as well. :)
A couple of funny moments, but nothing exceptional.
