Surprisingly true to the nature of shady dealerships
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Suckers takes a dealer point of view on car sales thus making it infinitely more entertaining than its Hollywood-point-of-view counterparts... see: Used Cars. If you have ever worked in the car industry at a less than reputable dealership, this is the comedy for you. If you have ever purchased a car from a less than reputable dealership, this is the tragedy for you. The ending does leave you with a "been there, seen that" feeling, but it's a guilty pleasure nonetheless. Suckers is clearly a low budget film for a selective audience, but it's one of the better written and directed low budget films that I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. I just wish this movie was a little easier to get a hold of on DVD.
