I’m not sure when stories about saving your abusive stepfather so that you can beat the hell out of him later became popular, but such is the premise of the new movie, Hot Rod, starring Andy Samberg.

Fresh off of “SNL” fame via the burg of Awesome Town, Samberg manages to play the exact same role in a slightly different setting. Throw in some “wtf” moments (Ebenezer Scrooge comes popping out of nowhere with a celebratory goose) and some highly over-stereotyped characters and you’ve got yourself a more juvenile version of a Will Ferrell movie.

It may be absolutely ridiculous, but it’ll get rave reviews from teeny boppers everywhere.

Grade: D

Hot Rod is currently in theaters.
