Trivia

According to a recent interview with John C. McGinley (AV Club's Random Roles- April 2013), the film was original shot as a musical with full musical numbers. After editing, only two musical numbers remained. McGinley was unsure of why specifically the numbers were cut or by whom, but McGinley mused that he found the film in its' present form an incoherent mess. See more »

possibly the worst film (using the term "film" lightly) ever made.
27 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

I bought Car 54 on a midnight boredom run to K-mart. It was four dollars, so I bought it. In retrospect, four dollars is far too high a price to pay for this.. this... crap (for lack of a better term suitable for small children.) I'd never seen it before, and John C. McGinley was in it, so I said 'what the hey.' It took me FOUR sittings to watch this movie! And I think I figured out the problem... it's not like Plan 9 From Outer Space where it's so bad it's funny.. this movie's just plain bad. if there's one funny line in the movie it's a lot. And I swear.. David Johansen's voice is possibly the most annoying thing on the face of the earth. Well, I guess this movie is halfway decent in its crappyness in the sense that when you're done watching it you feel really good about yourself because you had the selfrestraint to not knock over your TV or stick your head in the microwave.

i hope at least part of what I said made sense. and if you take only one thing away from this review take this: only watch this movie if you want to see how NOT to make a movie.
