"Sir. This Buick is you!"

"Used Cars" is one of those "movies for guys who love movies". It's a movie that pulls no punches, and will hit you square onto your funny bone. Although most of the cars in the film are junkers, they are still cool! You will see an amazing lime green 1973 Lincoln Continental in one scene, and an awesome '74 Mercury Montego that jumps a ramp over a moving train and still runs with big chrome '70s bumper intact! Then you we see a remarkable car chase that involves about 300 classic cars, ranging from old Lincolns and Chryslers, etc.

The movie features Russell as Rudy Russo, an used car salesman with absolutely no morals. Jack Warden takes on dual roles as twin brothers trying to win the battle of used car lots at the same corner. Garret Graham plays Russell's sidekick Jeff who tries to help Rudy move the cars through illegal television commercials, which are absolutely hilarious. Other performances of note are those of Deborah Harmon, the daughter of one of the twins who wins Rudy's heart, Joe Flaherty from Second City as an unscrupulous lawyer and Michael McKean and David Lander as techno wizards who assists Russell and Graham in their illegal activities.

I genuinely miss these types of comedies. Used Cars reminded me of a combination of The Blues Brothers, Police Academy, and License to Drive. It reminded me of a time when comedy was funny because of the language, actions, and final result. Sure, it followed a pattern that can be seen in nearly every film from this decade, but it was a tactic that worked well for those looking to make simple audiences laugh with simple jokes. You cannot find this in today's movies at all...

Overall rating: 8 out of 10.

One wild party of an insane movie, awesome!

Used Cars is an early comedy cult classic by the team of writer Bob Gale and director Robert Zemeckis. This film is also produced by John Milius and Steven Spielberg. All of these people I have just mentioned are some of the most talented(and successful)to have worked on films in Hollywood and are responsible for several blockbusters and classic movies. Kurt Russell is on top of his game as Rudy Russo, a crooked, but charming used car salesman that is about to expand his skills to a greater calling, politics. Used Cars is a very wild and raunchy comedy, but with heart, great writing and great characters. The cast is outstanding in this and has some really hilarious and excellent performances by Kurt Russell, Jack Warden doing double duty as the feuding Fuch brothers, Frank McRae, plus Lenny and Squiggy and Grandpa Munster. Used Cars is very original and smart comedy that is totally unhinged and balls out. Used Cars is a great comedy that I discovered later on and in my opinion this is one of Kurt's best films and in my opinion, this film and Kurt's family comedy classic Overboard. are just as good. However,both films are very different and Used Cars was strictly made for adults.

The Most Underrated, Overlooked Comedy EVER!

This classic was largely overlooked back in 1980, due to a botched release and competition from Airplane! Even 35 years later, it still provides huge laughs and is a great vehicle for a then-young Kurt Russell. Truly raunchy, but not gratuitously so, this is definitely a movie for guys (and maybe some women who have a good sense of humor) and takes advantage of the era before political correctness took over(think Blazing Saddles). The supporting cast is terrific (including "Toby" the dog), the faux commercials are priceless, and the wild ending unforgettable, regardless of the silliness of it all.

One last thing: if you get the DVD, definitely watch the movie with the commentary by Kurt Russell, Bob Gale, and Bob Zemenkis. It's by far the best commentary I've seen for any movie and is nearly as funny as the movie itself. The fact that it was made 20 years after the movie was released means they have fun pointing out the films technical flaws and back stories.
