Mixed up mess of a movie .......
5 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael Parks is at his mumbling best, but there is little else of interest. The problem is "Midnight Auto Supply" is supposed to be a comedy, but seriously lacks chuckles. Centering the auto theft operation around a "cathouse" could have worked as solid exploitation, but there is no nudity and very little titillation. Rory Calhoun is totally wasted in a strictly by the books role. There is one line in the entire movie that is memorable. The "house" madam dressing down one of her shy "girls" puts it like this " You are a whore act like one". Otherwise this is nothing special, with a muddled plot, time filler car chases, and a no surprise surprise ending. - MERK
