The real car business?
27 March 2006 | by (Orange County, Ca) – See all my reviews

If you are in the car business, this movie does ring true here and there. The actual truth is I worked at the dealership this movie was based on (it is a proved fact, the writer of this movie worked at this dealership for about 2 years). Did ALL of these things happen? No. I would say a majority of the incidents in this movie did happen but were BLOWN UP or exaggerated to make for good entertainment. The blatant racism in this movie does not occur in the car business. The car business is the one business in the world that welcomes all of the melting pot through its doors. Uneducated? English not your first language? No scholastic possibilities? Don't mind long hours? Wanna make a lot of money? WHEN CAN YOU START? The drug content in this movie was ridiculous. All of that is for effect, we don't sit around snorting cocaine and waiting for customers. The thing about this movie that made me laugh were the white, bald headed General Manager and the black Closer. I know both of the gentleman that these characters were based on and the actors hit a home run. They were represented perfectly. The scene where they bring all of the items outside (desk, chairs, tables) for the customer who would not go inside happened just like that. I actual like the movie, some of the scenes were hilarious and the jokes were funny but at the end of this movie, there is some lame presentation about how to buy a car from the writer. Take it from someone who has been in the business a long time, he knows about 20% of what needs to be known to speak on the car buying process. The bottom line is a Car Salesperson is a professional whose job is to make as much money on you as possible. The customer's job is to savve as much money as they can - A good salesperson sells 15 cars a month and works about 50 deals to make that 15. Mr. Customer, you're gonna lose every time. All in all, the movie is entertaining, check it out.
