The Digest

Rod Kimble (Andy Samberg), like his dearly departed father, wants to be a stunt man. Long on courage, but short on brains, he tries his best to honor his father, but he has a bit of way to go. This does not, however, stop his friends from supporting him even when he tries to (Jorma Taccone, Bill Hader and Danny McBride) jump a truck with a moped (see? Short on brains).

This is obviously not his forte, but no one wants to tell him, not even his mother, (Sissy Spacek). But his mean ole stepfather Frank (Ian McShane) has no compunctions and takes glee in telling him. Yet despite this it is Rod to the rescue when Frank's heart begins to give out on him and $50,000 is needed for the operation that will save his life.

The Dish

Oh lord. It's a shame when the extras are better than the entire movie. As the credits rolled all I could do is blink and drool, silently crying in memory of my brain cells. I get dumb. I can sometimes enjoy dumb, but I can't deal with dumbass - and there is a difference.

The Directive

SNL keeps allowing these crap movies in a quest for "The Blue Brothers and Wayne's World" dollars. Good luck with that Skippy. Just don't even bother….
