An average movie

Before making all those big blockbusters and, in the process, very often pushing the envelope visually speaking, Robert Zemeckis made this rather modest comedy (as a matter of fact, it was his second directing feature). Many consider this flick an underrated and forgotten gem and even though I thought it was a decent effort, I can't say I was really blown away by the whole thing though. I mean, f... read more

Used car salesman Rudy Russo needs money to run for State Senate, so he approaches his boss Luke. Luke agrees to front him the $10,000 he needs, but then encounters an "accident" orchestrated by his brother Roy, who runs the car lot across the street. Roy is hoping to claim title to his brother's property because Roy's paying off the mayor to put the new interstate through the area. After Luke disappears, it's all out war between the competing car shops, and no nasty trick is off limits as Rudy and his gang fight to keep Roy from taking Luke's property. Then Luke's daughter shows up.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: March 18th Via: Apple TV Plot: When the owner of a struggling used car lot is killed, it's up to the lot's hot-shot salesman to save the property from falling into the hands of the owner's ruthless brother and used-car rival. Rating: 7.2/10 Why Did I Watch It? This is a pretty large cinematic blind spot, especially as I love '80s cinema. It was a random pick today."

" Rudy Russo (Kurt Russell) is an unscrupulous car salesman who aspires to become a politician. In the meantime, however, Rudy works for the nice but ineffective automobile dealer Luke Fuchs. When Luke dies, Rudy takes over the lot, but he faces stiff competition from the scheming Roy L. Fuchs who wants his brother's business for himself. In order to get more customers, Rudy and Roy each devise ridiculous promotions to gain the upper hand. Although not a box-office success at the time, it has"

"16.10. Kurt Russell perseilee automyyjänä. Tässä oli yllättävänkin hurttia huumoria, mikä huvitti ja jopa naurattikin muutamaan otteeseen. Mahtuu tähän paljon myös nykymittapuulla melko kuivia juttuja."

" Date: 8/13/2019 Viewed: Sony Crackle First viewing Note: I always wanted to check out this movie for years now and this movie did not disappoint me. I thought this movie was hilarious from start to finish. All the characters are funny and memorable. This movie has a lot of scenes that made me laugh hard. The story is predictable, but I still care about on what was going to happen to the characters in the movie. This is movie is worth checking out if you enjoy comedies. "
