Killing Hasselhoff

An amusing idea turns into an unfunny slog. At least killing Hasselhoff is only 80 minutes long.

Chris (Ken Jeong) has a nightclub. David Hasselhoff is supposed to have a celebration there, however he cancels, which means Chris can’t satisfy his financial obligation to a tough guy (Will Sasso, who never seems that menacing). since Chris has already chosen Hasselhoff in a “celebrity death pool” with a significant payoff, he chooses that the very best thing to do would be to murder him to get the money he needs.

Aside from the truth I don’t believe Jeong is extremely great as a lead, since he’s funnier in little doses, he seems as well old for this role. This would have been much better with somebody who might play younger as well as stupider more effectively. Hasselhoff does quite great as a self-centered celeb trying to stay appropriate — his huge concept of what to do next is a “superhero musical”, as well as he still looks okay with his shirt off, which occurs a great deal — however none of this kept my interest or made me laugh.

Which is a shame, provided a few of the cast is halfway decent. Hasselhoff’s agent is Jon Lovitz. Rhys Darby is one of Chris’ friends who provides him some unusual murder methods. Ron Funches is one more friend, a stoner who wanders off early on. Colton Dunn (Garrett on Superstore) is a hitman. Gena Lee Nolin, Michael Winslow, as well as Rick Fox play themselves. however it’s all extremely patchy, as though when the concept was acquired, nobody was rather sure exactly how far to take it or what to finish with it. This trailer has all the high points of the film (aside from a random pair of nude breasts, which aren’t imagined however will likely thrill the target audience):

If you try viewing killing Hasselhoff, out now on digital as well as DVD, you most likely want to at least stick around for the credits, where Jeong as well as Hasselhoff sing a duet about exactly how they’re “f***ing crushing it”. (There’s great deals of Hoff cussing in this movie.) The DVD has eight-and-a-half minutes of deleted scenes, many of which function Howie Mandel playing himself as well as extra cameos from Hulk Hogan. (The studio provided a evaluation copy.)
