Used Cars

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

With their unerring eye for potential, the distributors didn't release this hilarious black comedy to cinemas in Britain. Zemeckis subsequently went on to make Romancing the Stone, Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and loadsa money. Infinitely more caustic than these blockbusters, Used Cars runs on a contemporary screwball motor with a slapstick chassis. Centred on the outrageous rivalry of two car dealerships (both owned by Jack Warden, as twins), it's an amoral celebration of the all-American wheeler-dealer - like Tin Men on speed. Even Jimmy Carter lends his support!
