Insultingly stupid rating here for a clean, entertaining and well made movie!
5 July 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Absolutely moronic user-rating for such a pleasant and well made little film which being in Australia, I have only ever known as MY USED CAR. It would lead one to believe that decency, LACK of vitriol, language and violence just doesn't sit well with today's viewing audience. I agree with whoever likened this to THE WEDDING SINGER. Both films promote a feel-good yet family-orientated slant on youthful zest and maybe even excess.

Just days before his wedding to Stephanie (and has ANYONE ever seen a prettier girl, let alone a BRIDE than exquisite cutie - Leslie Hope?) young Travis just HAS to have himself a new supercar...some kinda tricked-up Lambo look-alike the majority of which was "made in Taiwan!" His dreams turns to an outright horror-show when the car falls apart like a cheap suit. Time, he thinks to take it up to the shonky car dealership and its rat-bag owner!

While Stephanie and her long suffering dad, together with wall to wall guests line the church waiting with little expectation of ever seeing Travis again ("Never did trust that boy" intones her dad at regular intervals) our hero is living his revenge, with the help of the beautiful sales girl who persuaded him to buy the wreck in the first place. Will Stephanie have to take a back-seat to the new Jill-come- lately? Is someone else going to get heartbroken here? Will he make the wedding? Well, whaddya think?

I loved this film - any romantic would! if you don't like it - don't watch it! Realistically a 6.5! It doesn't AIM any higher!
