Hands on a Hardbody Review
By Christopher Null on Tuesday 1st November 2005
Contests like the one pictured in Hands on a Hardbody happen all the time: Keep one hand on a truck longer than 23 other people and you get to drive home on it. This modern take on the dance-a-thon (see They Shoot Horses, Don't They?) is captured in all its oddity and grandeur by documentarian S.R. Bindler, interviewing the contestants during their breaks along with observers, handicappers, and psychologists, all of whom agree this is one crazy event. Best part: The different strategies (from a juice and fish regimen to simple prayer) the contestants use to win. The movie is extremely rough around the edges but definitely worth watching, if only to prove to you the lengths some people will go to in order to get something for nothing.
