Hot Rod (2007) Director: Akiva Schaffer (The Watch) Rod Kimble is a young stuntman trying to follow in his father's footsteps as being one of the greatest stuntmen of all time. He wants to gain respect from his stepfather and kick his ass but he is slowly dying and has to have an emergency operation. Rod decides to train every day with his crew for a fundraiser he is putting on to earn the money for the operation and to get the girl of his dreams. I added this to my digital collection the other night and decided to watch it for the 15th plus time since my girlfriend hadn't seen it yet. I've been a big fan of this movie ever since I saw it in theaters and think it's a classic film for Andy Samberg. I've been on a Brooklyn Nine-Nine binge lately so this made me recognize some more of the humor he took from this movie over to his character on the show. Danny Mcbride is fantastic as always and Bill Hader is great too. This film is over the top and very dumb but it's very fun and enjoyable if you like his humor. I personally think this is a great film and love to revisit it every other year. I'd give this film a 7.5/10. #stunt#stunts#review#movies#movie#movienght#comedy#snl#andysamberg#lonelyisland#bluray#dvd#cinema#action#funny#dannymcbride#billhader#netflix#amazon#hulu#stream#streaming#bike#dirtbike#race#health#heart
Today, April 24, 1976, John Lennon and Paul McCartney consider appearing on Saturday Night Live! On the evening that Wings At The Speed Of Sound reached number one in the US charts, Paul paid a visit to John at the Dakota in New York City. John was watching the television show NBC's Saturday Night, the late-night comedy show which in 1977 became Saturday Night Live. It was shown on this evening on NBC from 11.30pm-1am Eastern Time; John had tuned in to see appearances by actor Raquel Welch and The Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian. Co-creator and producer Lorne Michaels made occasional appearances on screen. During this particular episode he made a deliberately paltry on-air offer of $3,000 for The Beatles to reunite on the show. Lorne Michaels was unaware that both John & Paul were both watching SNL that night, and considered making the journey to the Rockefeller Center studio to claim the money. John, “Paul and I were together watching that show. He was visiting us at our place in the Dakota. We were watching it and almost went down to the studio, just as a gag. We nearly got into a cab, but we were actually too tired... He and Linda walked in and he and I were just sitting there watching the show, and we went, Ha-ha, wouldn't it be funny if we went down, but we didn't.” Paul and Linda left the Dakota as John and Yoko Ono began watching the 1960 science-fiction film The Time Machine. The following day, 25 April 1976, was the final occasion on which John and Paul saw each other. The near-reunion later became the basis for the 2000 television drama Two Of Us. It was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who had filmed The Beatles for Let It Be and promo clips for the singles Paperback Writer and Hey Jude, and starred Jared Harris as Lennon and Aidan Quinn as McCartney. On November 20, 1976, George appeared on SNL, and explained to Lorne Michaels that he should receive the 3 thousand dollars...(it was all in fun). (Sorry for the video quality, all I could find).
