This is one funny movie. Kurt Russell shows his comedic side and is hysterical - so are Gerrit Graham and Jack Warden. Robert Zemeckis made a gem very few people saw and this is my favorite movie of his. See it if you want to laugh like hell.
among the funniest (by winner55)
This film appeared at a transitional moment in American comedy, and was beaten at the box-office by the first of what became the dominating type of comic film ever since, "Airplane!". Yet, among the last of the '70s style comedies of outrageous characters in domestic settings the type finally met its waterloo in the bloated "Blues Brothers," but still managed a convulsively successful finale in "Ghostbusters" , "Used Cars" is among the funniest of its type and era.With most of its budget going to what else? used cars, the film still manages a <more>
solidly competent look throughout, largely thanks to some real risky one-take stunts and set-pieces. The pacing is swift, and the actors play dead-pan but not so much that we need to take any of this seriously."Used Cars" is also the kind of comedy that satirizes all we hold dear as Americans, but not so bitterly that we are left feeling bad about ourselves; this may be a depiction of us at our worst - but hey, nobody's perfect! Besides, there's just enough of a romantic story attached to remind us of the redemptive power of love - without getting all syrupy-sweet on us.Just excessive enough to get silly without ever being dull, a hearty laugh for any time of day.
The Most Underrated, Overlooked Comedy EVER! (by valleycapfan)
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 <more>
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.
Gross, Crude, Sick, tasteless, and VERY funny (by stuprince)
This is a romantic comedy, but not one I would watch with my wife! The tasteless jokes and one-liners roll out almost non-stop. The movie verifies most everything we believe about used car salesmen, the "My boss will have a heart Attack" sales scene nearly brings me to tears I laugh so hard. Russell is at his best with some of the best character actors around joining in, I especially like the goofy Lenny and Squiggy, they just play two very disturbed individuals. Don't look for any deep meaning here, just crude humor a a very funny movie.I give it 8/10
Brilliant!! (by DanielKing)
******************SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!******************************There are not many American films made any more which are as inherently cynical and as satirical as this. I know Rudy gives up his chance of becoming Senator to help Barbara but the last image we see is him giving the spiel to an old woman. The makers knew they wouldn't be able to get away with making a film which didn't have some sort of phoney closure so they stuck in the big finale, but they mean for us to be aware of Rudy's true identity; once a hustler, always a hustler.It is also incredibly funny, packed with <more>
incidental pleasures as well as the foregrounded plot. In many ways the film could have been improved if they had just concentrated on the machinations of the rival dealerships but I think the film did need something more concrete to hang the narrative on. The last half an hour is a little disappointing but given that the preceding hour and a bit was so good, one can forgive them this.There are so many things to mention I think I'll just list a few: Toby the dog, the two guerilla broadcasters, Rudy's first commercial, Jeff conning a customer into thinking he has killed the dog. There are so many great moments I can't think why this film isn't better known than it is.
The first R-rated movie I've ever saw with my parents (by GOWBTW)
I remember when I was with my parents and I in a hotel. And the movie I've ever saw NOT in a theater, but on HBO was "Used Cars". I was too young to know about the content of the movie, however just watching the scenes were more memorable than what I heard. Kurt Russell, Jack Warden, and many other stars in the movie make up the biggest hits in 1980. The guys from "Laverne & Shirley" David L.Lander and Michael McKean were in it as well. That was awesome. I liked the part were Rudy Russo Russell was trying to fix up all those lemons in the parking lot. And he had <more>
to help Roy Fuchs Jack Warden fend off his terrible twin brother also played by Warden in keeping the business straight. When Roy dies, Russo is in charge. Then I also remember the part about the grand-opening that went horribly wrong. The woman's dress got struck on the hood, and she revealed herself on TV. That'll be the biggest gossip not told only by other women, but young boys as well. They'll have a hard time keeping that news to themselves. Everything in this movie was great, the fight, the action, the comedy, and the laugher. The cars may be a sour deal, but the movie isn't. Buy it! Don't rent it, otherwise, you may not get a full refund. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
you get a lot of millage out of this baby (by movieman_kev)
Kurt Russell is Rudy Russo a slimy, dishonest used car salesman working for Luke Fuchs Jack Warden who yearns to be in Congress, where the real payola is. When Luke dies from one of the schemes of his evil brother, Roy Jack Warden again pulling double duty, who owns his own used car lot across the street to get Luke's car lot, as his is going to be bulldozed to make room for a new offramp. It's up to Rudy to hide Luke's death from both Roy and Luke's daughter, Barbara Deborah Harmon , whom Rudy is falling for despite himself. This movie is one of Robert Zemeckis's <more>
best films right up there with the first "Back to the Future" , but whereas that's more or less a kid's fantasy, however great it might be. This is a true blue adult comedy that wears it's R rating on it's sleeve. And is all the more hilarious for it. Filled with a great many quotable lines, memorable scenes, and wonderfully zany characters, it's no wonder that I love it so much.My Grade: B+ DVD Extras: Commentary by Robert Zemeckis, Kurt Russell, and Bob Gale; Outtakes; TV spot; 8 Radio spots; Advertising Gallery; filmagraphies; and Trailers for "So I Married an Axe Murderer", "Multiplicity" and "Groundhog Day" Eye Candy: Deborah Harmon and Cheryl Rixon each get topless
I borrowed this DVD from a friend as was fairly surprised at the amount of laughs. Kurt Russell and Jack Warden are worth the price of admission. Mostly crude sex jokes, with a few nude scenes for good measure. Lenny & Squiggy make a couple appearances and are worth a few chuckles. A thin plot, mostly an excuse for said sex jokes and foul language. Have a few beers sit back and check your brain at the door. It definitely has that "dated" feel in picture quality, but those can be fun. You can tell this movie was made for the "drive-in" crowd in the 1970's. Jack <more>
Warden has a dual role in this movie, and pulls each of them off quite well. Warden was one of the best curser's of all-time along with M. Emmet Walsh .
Nothing great, but worth a viewing. (by LebowskiT1000)
If you are a fan of Robert Zemeckis, you are probably going to want to see this. It's not nearly as good as the rest of his films, but it's definitely worth a watch. It's always good to see where great directors came from.I guess this falls into the comedy genre, but I didn't find a whole lot of comedy in the film, there was some of course, but I find it kind of hard to call this movie a comedy. I would just call this an interesting movie. It's definitely not a drama or action, but it's got all kinds of elements of different genres in it. I guess there is no other <more>
genre to put it in other than comedy. Ok, maybe it is a comedy.The actors all did a pretty good job. It was cool to see Kurt Russell in one of his earlier films. Jack Warden did a pretty good job as well. Ever since I saw "*Batteries Not Included", I've been a fan of Frank McRae, so I liked seeing him in the film. I'd never heard of Deborah Harmon before, but I thought she did a great job in the film. I thought it was really cool to see Al Lewis best known as Grandpa Muster from "The Munsters" as the judge. ...And as I said, I thought the rest of the cast was good too. I really liked the little dog in the film, "Toby".This is a good film, but nothing to go out of your way to see unless you are a huge fan of Robert Zemeckis . I'd say if you get a chance, go ahead and watch it, but don't expect a great movie. Thanks for reading,-Chris
