Just picked up the recent DVD release of the 1980 comedy “Used Cars”. Anyone else like this movie? I loved it when it first came out, and even after 25 years it’s still very funny.
This is very much in the tradition of “CaddyShack” and “Stripes”. It’s about a car dealership full of totally amoral workers. Hijinks ensue. Lenny and Squiggy make an appearance as genius hackers, as does Joe Flaherty as a sleazy lawyer. Kurt Russell is excellent as a complete sleazebag car salesman with a heart of go… no, not gold. Maybe rusty tin. There’s a heart there somewhere, sort of.
Not to be missed: The car lot boys hijack a microwave relay and insert their homemade car commercials illegally into several broadcasts - each more hilarious than the previous one.
And hey, fifty bucks never killed anyone.
Anyone else remember and like this movie?
