Hot Rods Are So Hot Right Now
Ah, CINSSU, how we love thee. U of T’s Cinema Studies Student Union’s free screenings have been a staple of Mathew Kumar’s weekly Film Friday posts…and, uh, our hearts. Now, CINSSU has graced us with 20 passes (each of which admits two people) to give away to Torontoist readers for a special advance screening of Andy Samberg’s new film Hot Rod. Andy Samberg is awesome (see: The Lonely Island), so we’re actually looking forward to it.
The film screens Thursday, July 19 at 8 p.m. at Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Avenue). Deadline for our contest is Monday at midnight. To win, enter your name and e-mail address and tell us this: if you had a movie about you, what would its two-word title be?
The contest is now closed. Thanks to all of those who entered. We got about fifty entries, so picking twenty was absolutely no fun. That said, our winners, and their entries, are Jake K., for Officer Awesome; Alistair S., for Forgivingly Useless; Sean G., for Sexual Vanilla; Jared P., for Misplaced Pants; Daniel D., for VanDan Attacks!; Evan M., for Vaguely Disappointing; Myles M., for Flagrant Vagrant; Daniel C., for Boozey Love; Thomas B., for Tom Foolery; Jake M., for Bad Ass; Jennifer W., for Eternal Student; Adam P., for Tyborg [Cyborg?—Ed.] Futureman; Mick S., for Robot Pony; Brent B., for Logically Drunk; Mark O., for Sea Bear; Andres S., for Another Cliche; Jen M., for Unemployed Slacker; Jennifer T., for TURBO RAD!!!!!!; Ben L., for Big Ben; and Rob P., for IT Monkey.
Good luck! To whet your appetite for the flick, check out its YouTube-heavy and vaguely 1990s-looking semi-authentic website. God, we really, really, really hope Hot Rod doesn’t suck…
