Meanwhile, his stepfather Frank fails to respect Rod as a man, often going out of his way to beat him in sparring sessions and mocking his stuntman dream.
Rod makes many attempts at landing jumps with his Tomos moped, most of them ending unsuccessfully.
Kevin releases a movie using his footage of Rod's stunts and sells over 200 tickets, but everyone at the movie laughs at Rod's expense as the film depicts his failed training attempts.
Rod gets angry and throws the theater's projector out of a window, smashing the projectionist's car below.
Humiliated, Rod quits the crew and ends his dream to beat up Frank, despite his friends' interventions.
When he awakes, Rod, with the help of Kevin and Denise, triumphantly gets up to the applause of the crowd, and sees that the donations have accumulated over ,000, the cost of Frank's "conveniently priced" surgery.
Hot Rod is a 2007 American comedy film co-written, directed by, and starring members of The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer).
