This movie may have slipped under your Bat-Radar because;

Brief synopsis; 
Self-proclaimed stuntman Rod Kimble is preparing for the jump of his life - to clear fifteen buses to raise money for his abusive stepfather Frank's life-saving heart operation.

Why you need to watch this;
It is out and out hilarious. If you're a fan of either The Lonely Island or Will Ferrel-style humour, its worth a watch. Heck, even if you aren't a fan of either, WATCH IT. Its pant-wettingly hilarious with a very unique idea behind the plot, especially for a comedy. Its also got a handful of brilliant references and some truly genius scenes.
