** 1/2 (out of 4)
Decent entry in the Joe McDoakes series has Alice forcing him to trade in their junk car for a used one. Joe goes to a local dealer where he gets taken advantage of but in ways you wouldn't expect. This certainly isn't the best film in the series but it's a decent one that has a few nice laughs. The one major problem though is that it keeps repeating a joke dealing with car horns and this here wasn't funny the first time and it's certainly not funny the third and fourth times. The highlight of the film would have to be a sequence where Joe thinks if he wrecks his car that he'll get a brand new one but he isn't aware of a twist that happened earlier. Again, this isn't the greatest in the series but fans of George O'Hanlon should get a few laughs out of it.
