Used car salesman Rudy Russo (Kurt Russell) needs money to run for State Senate, so he approaches his boss Luke (Jack Warden). Luke agrees to front him the $10,000 he needs, but then encounters an "accident" orchestrated by his brother Roy also played by Warden, who runs the car lot across the street. Roy is hoping to claim title to his brother's property because Roy's paying off the mayor to put the new interstate through the area. After Luke disappears, it's all out war between the competing car shops, and no nasty trick is off limits as Rudy and his gang fight to keep Roy from taking Luke's property. Then Luke's daughter shows up. Written by

New Deal Used Cars was able to lure customers away from Roy L Fuchs Pre-Owned Automobiles using strippers dancing atop the cars. The customers were families, enjoying a circus atmosphere. It seems unlikely that families with women and children present would be attracted by strippers. See more »
It is absolutely absurd that this flick was left off "AFI's Top 100 Funniest Movies of All Time." While it loses some steam (and irreverence} in the last twenty minutes,the first two thirds of the movie is consistently hilarious. The omission may have occurred because female members of the voting panel found the movie offensive. Indeed, the main male characters manipulate and exploit women throughout. In truth, the used car salesmen manipulate all the men they encounter too (although they don't use their tits to sell cars).
I encourage you men to view this gem with your female significant other even though it's not a "chick flick" like "When Harry Met Sally." If she hates it, dump her for a woman with a sense of humor.
