Used Cars

“You killed my dog, mister!”

Nothing is off limits for the salesmen in this salty comedy, from hijacking the airwaves to run renegade TV ads, to faking out a prospective buyer by making him think he turned the company dog into a pancake.

Director Robert Zemeckis, before he got respectable with an Oscar, gets down ‘n dirty, with Kurt Russell and Gerrit Graham a formidable duo as fast-talking, eyes-ever-on-the-wallet shysters.

If you’re a person who thinks kids falling out of the back of a moving car isn’t funny, this probably isn’t the movie for you.

Which is too bad.
