Product Description:

Tin Men

Cruise back to Baltimore 1963, to the time and turf of a rare American breed: the "tin man" (aluminum siding salesman). Two less-than-honest rivals in the tin game (Richard Dreyfuss and Danny DeVito) meet in a fender bender, but their bruised egos and quick tempers turn the minor accident into a major vendetta against each other's symbols of success -- their prized Cadillacs. In what would seem to be a coup de grace, Dreyfuss decides to seduce DeVito's neglected wife (Barbara Hershey), but this romantic maneuver causes nonstop twists and turns to both the heart and the funnybone. With a supporting cast that's absolutely classic and music by The Fine Young Cannibals, TIN MEN sounds as good as it looks!

Plot Synopsis:

Two aluminum siding salesmen crash into each other on the road and find, to their distress, that their beloved Cadillacs got damaged in the process. What started as an accident soon ignites into an out-and-out feud as the two struggle to outdo each other in nastiness. At first, revenge is sweet, but as the stakes go up both men discover that their ongoing animosity will cost them dearly--personally and financially.
