Featuring a great turn from Kurt Russell, Used Cars is both a brilliantly funny comedy and a good reminder of just how interesting a writer-director Robert Zemeckis used to be. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- It's also one of the funniest ruminations on American values, as the car showroom becomes a warped microcosm of society. Full Review

What might have looked like a great idea on paper has been tackled by filmmakers who haven't expanded it much beyond the one joke inherent in the premise. Full Review

Most of the time, I didn't know whether to laugh or shudder, and I ended up doing a lot of both. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Used Cars was written, directed, and produced by the team of Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale, two young filmmakers who seem to be higher on kinetic energy than on structure and comedic instinct. Full Review

Director/co-writer Robert Zemeckis has undeniable energy and flair, but it's being misspent on pretexts and situations that seem inexcusably gratuitous and snide. Full Review

Sixties nostalgia from I Wanna Hold Your Hand shifts to bracing vulgarity circa late-'70s, just as Kurt Russell graduates from Disney to conman greasiness. Full Review

Product Description:

Jack Warden stars as Luke and Roy L. Fuchs--feuding used car-selling twin brothers who square off in an outrageous, all-out attempt to put each other out of business. Rudy Russo (Kurt Russell), Luke's star salesman, is doing all the lying and cheating that he can in the name of the cause, but only in preparation for what he feels is his true calling--a career in politics! You'll howl at the proceedings, which involve strippers on television and a 200-car chase that turns into a full-on demolition derby. Director Robert Zemeckis (BACK TO THE FUTURE, CAST AWAY) also assembled a first-rate supporting cast (featuring Michael McKean, Joe Flaherty, and Gerritt Graham) for this raunchy, action-packed, and hilarious cult favorite.

Plot Synopsis:

Super-sleazy used car salesman Roy L. Fuchs desperately tries to buy out a neighboring lot owned by his brother Luke Fuchs. But when the Luke dies, Luke's con-man assistant Rudy Russo is determined to keep the business for himself. Keeping Luke's death a secret from Roy, Rudy dreams up a wacked-out promotional campaign in an effort drum up publicity for the lot and simultaneously further his own political aspirations.
