Quotes

Rick Murphy: Can I ask you a question? I mean, I'm all for old fella's in the workforce, but couldn't you do Home Depot or shoppin' carts or somethin'? Repoin' cars might be a bit of a stretch at your age.
The Colonel: Let me tell you something. When I was a young fella', like yourself, I'd spend all my time dreamin' about the future... and then one day you stop... and you just dream about the past... I used to be good at this repoin' stuff... I think I can get 'er back.

You will love THE ALMOST GUYS. It's a fun, straightforward buddy adventure film, in which the buddies aren't quite up to the adventure. Eric Fleming is extremely likable as a repo man who is in no way a success, but is truly doing his best to be a good father to his son (played splendidly by Oliver Davis). Robert Culp is the perfect curmudgeonly sidekick. When the luckless repo men decide to carry out a kidnapping that someone else started, all hell breaks loose.

The movie is muscle cars, motels, money, and figuring out what's really important.

It's been a long while since I've seen a movie as touching, which made me laugh- out-loud at the same time.
