Synopsis


Used Cars
Used Cars is one of Robert Zemeckis' pre-Roger Rabbit and pre-Forrest Gump efforts starring Kurt Russell is a devious car salesman who goes to work for affable but monumentally unsuccessful used car dealer Jack Warden. Warden's principal rival is his more prosperous twin brother, also played by Warden, who schemes to take over the "good" brother's lot. After a series of raunchy vignettes, the film boils down to an every-man-for-himself price war between the two Wardens, which rages on even after we're one Warden short. The supporting cast of Used Cars is populated by such reliables as David L. Lander, Michael McKean, Al Lewis, Dub Taylor, Dick Miller and Betty Thomas. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Plenty of laughs that will bring tears to your eyes, especially over Toby, the cute, clever beagle featured in the film.

    Wasn't This Supposed to Be A Comedy?

    I thought this one would be a riot. After all, Kurt Russell was the star and Robert Zemeckis directed. Well, everyone has their bad ones I guess.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This movie is a classic. Used car salesman already had a bad enough rap but this made it worse i'm sure. Funny though and actually has a plot.
