Storyline

We meet Harley and Renee Atwater, both in their early 30s, on a warm, sunny, Saturday morning, as they are preparing their "Yard Sale." The reason for the yard sale is simple -- In two days their divorce will be final and, at their mediator's suggestion, they've decided to sell all of the possessions they've acquired during their 11-year marriage and split the profits. Then they will each be off to start their new lives apart. Only one problem ---- neither one wants to part with their 1994 Jeep Wrangler. So now what? Fortunately, Harley, a long-struggling comedy writer, comes up with a novel solution: whichever person makes the most money by the end of the yard sale gets to keep the Jeep. So, with the bet in place, Harley and Renee (a loving, level-headed woman) proceed to "sell off pieces of their lives" to the quirky, offbeat, and often hilariously bizarre people that always arrive at yard sales! And during the constant haggling with buyers over the dozens of items that Harley and ... Written by Anonymous

You laugh with a lump in your throat
10 July 2004 | by (Dewey, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Yard Sale is a unique film which uses humor to soften the heartbreak of separation. Anyone who has gone through or even contemplated divorce will identify with Harley and Rene as they go through their last day together. Yard Sale is a refreshing approach to "love turned sour" with a wonderful cast of interfering and intrusive characters who help Harley and Rene face their future. The uncertainty of the outcome of their day is mirrored by the people who they encounter. It would appear that most of what a person might feel in a lifetime is felt by Harley or Rene or both in that final day. And they take you with them making you laugh and angry and sad and cry.
