Hot Rod

 

Brad Burke

 

ACT ONE

Introduction to characters and conflict

 

The relationship between the majority of the characters is established in the first couple scenes of Hot Rod. Later on, the characters in the story sit around and introduce themselves to a new crew member. This tells you their so called roles in the stunt team.

Dramatic Premise

 

The Dramatic Premise is established in the first scene of the movie. Rod tries to jump a van and messes up turning this into quite a hilarious scene.

Ordinary World

 

The characters are believable in this movie. They are “Average Joes” so to speak. The movie is realistic enough that it could occur today. (All though not likely)

Inciting Incident

 

Rod’s stepfather’s heart becomes weak and he begins to die. Their insurance will not cover the cost of his heart transplant. Due to never winning a fight with his stepfather, Rod decides to earn the $50,000 dollars needed to perform the operation... Just so he can beat him down when he is better.

 

ACT TWO

Obstacles

 

Rod must earn money from doing dangerous and tedious work at parties. He gets hit by a crane, and even blown up to raise enough money to fund his giant jump. This jump will hopefully raise the money for the surgery.

 

Another obstacle Rod faces is that the girl he likes already has a boyfriend.

 

First Culmination

 

Rod raises $5,000 dollars eventually, and can get the equipment he needs to do his jump.

Midpoint

After being embarrassed by a video of outtakes shown at his school, Rod rages as he throws the movie projector out a window. It was the only way to stop the video and get people to stop laughing at him. Unfortunately it ruins the projector and destroys the windshield of a police car. Rod is forced to forfeit all his money for the repairs.

 

 

ACT THREE

Climax (second culmination)

 

Rod is sponsored by an AM radio station to do his jump. The track is built, and tons of eager fans come to watch the jump. Rod achieves the $50,000 dollar mark, but does not succeed in landing the jump.

 

Denouement

Rod is cheered on as he announces he has made the money needed for the surgery. A feeling of accomplishment is present even though Rod limps away to the center of the track.

 

Resolution

 

Matters are finally resolved after Rod’s stepfather’s heart transplant was a success. Now that he is better Rod can finally beat him up for all the times he lost to him in a fight. At the end of the movie Rod accomplishes his real goal as he lays the smack down on his father, breaking through fences and picnic tables along the way.
