Saturday Night Live regular Andy Samberg graduates to a big-screen vehicle as Rod, a witless suburban kid who sponges off his parents (Ian McShane and Sissy Spacek) and fancies himself a stunt rider. The script was a Will Ferrell discard and plays like one, with most of the comic scenes hanging limply on Rod's delusions of grandeur and any character interest snuffed out by the contrived, self-negating plot (Rod wants to raise $50,000 by jumping over fifteen buses so he can buy his stepdad a heart transplant -- and then kick his ass). Samberg can't carry this, though director Akiva Schaffer supplies some hilarious, Jackass-style wipeouts and there are nice supporting turns from Isla Fisher (The Wedding Crashers) as Rod's love interest and Bill Hader as one of his goofball friends.
