click to enlarge Hot Rod (PG-13) Paramount - Home Entertainment One of the summer's - overlooked comedies was the absurdist big-screen debut - of Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg in the - stuntman comedy Hot Rod. Samberg plays Rod - Kimble, a wannabe whose work is more Jackass - than badass. Much in the vein of films like - Anchorman, this flick is downright bizarre and - plays to select tastes, but those who get it are in for a - comic treat. Samberg's charming affability sells it when - the jokes fall flat (which is rare). Additionally, the DVD is - filled with extras as funny as the film.  Louis - Fowler

    I've never really been a big fan of The Simpsons creator Matt Groening's other creation, Futurama. When it was canceled, I was barely affected. I must have been in the minority; fans rallied for its return, and the creators heard the cries, releasing this, the first of a series of Futurama movies. If you're familiar with the show, you've seen it before scheming robot Bender, under the sway of e-mail- spamming aliens, goes back in time multiple times.

Between her smotherings, he seeks - disjointed revenge on those who wronged him, and - peeps in on neighbors along the way. Not much else - goes on, but director Curtis Harrington still has crafted a - moody, affected thriller, a subtle diversion into the mind - of a realistic madman. The late Harrington, looking - incredibly haggard, offers one of his final interviews - about the film in the special features.  Louis - Fowler
