Storyline

In Texas, the naive Travis Rogers quits his job to marry his beloved Stephanie "Stephi" Lawrence and work with his father-in-law. However he decides to buy a car with his US$ 5,000.00 savings in Dallas before the wedding. He goes to a car dealer and the sexy saleswoman Jonni Tigersmith convinces him to buy an expensive fully-loaded Lamborghini-type car after the test drive. But soon Travis finds that his car is a piece of junk. When Jonni sees the car, she has an argument with her crooked boss since it is not the test drive car and is fired together with the mechanic. She meets Travis and they have one night stand. They team up with the mechanic and decide to retrieve the car he bought. Meanwhile Stephi is waiting for travel for the rehearsals and finally for the wedding. Will Travis marry Stephi or stay with Jonni? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Entertaining Movie
14 September 1999 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

I saw this about 10 years ago ... but really like it. Here's what I remember of the movie:

A young man travels a long distance to buy an expensive sports car a few days before his wedding. His new car has problems and he is stranded. He trys to get the car fixed but finds out because he didn't buy an "extended warranty" there is no warranty on the car and he has bought a worthless lemon.

He sets out to get even with the dealership. Along the way he meets a beautiful woman. He tries to buy a bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne because she tells him it makes her wild. He gets robbed at the liquor store when trying to buy the champagne. The crooks also steal his champagne. Movie is very funny, strange, and entertaining.
