Even a sleazy used car salesman can find some redemption at the moment of his death.
24 June 2002 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This very funny film explores how even a sleazy used car salesman can find some redemption at the moment of his death. Griasffi sucessfully weaves a story based on one-liners (typical of the used care salesman stereotype) and a character (death) who never never says a word. There is one slightly dated joke referencing O.J. Simpson, but, most of the humor is timeless. I highly recommend anyone interested in short comedies to find a copy of this film and watch it... over and over and over.
