Storyline

Ford Davis is fresh out of college and out of a job. After damaging a rental car from his father's car dealership, Ford is forced into working on the lot as a salesmen until he can pay off his debt to his dad, Big Len. While at the dealership, Ford befriends the other car salesmen, who refer to each other as "CarBabes," and quickly learns that selling cars is not easy. Meanwhile, a competitor across the street, Ron Hamper of Hamper's Campers RV Park, has had his eye on the Davis Automotive lot for sometime now. When Ron Hamper sees that Big Len is in financial trouble, he decides to strike and attempts to takeover Davis Automotive and make the dealership into a parking lot for his campers.   Using the wisdom he has gained from his father and the rest of the team, Ford comes up with one final plan to save the dealership from impending doom: a blowout sale to sell 300 cars in a month. Impossible? Not if you're a CarBabe... Written by Anonymous

High octane enjoyment from a compact-size budget; very fun
2 March 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Big Len (Blake Clark) has owned a car dealership for many years. He has done very well and delights in making offbeat ads. He even named his only son Ford (Ben Savage), who has a degree in English, but, has had no luck in the job market. Ford has returned home and is living in his childhood room, where his beautiful blonde girlfriend comes for late night visits. This, even though Len comes through the door at unexpected times. One day, another lovely gal, Alicia (Carolina Garcia) comes to the lot and admires a classic auto when Ford is there. Alas, when they take it for a spin, the car gets damaged and Len is angry. He declares that his son will work for him, no ifs or buts, until the debt is paid. This is horror for Ford, who is embarrassed by his dad's ads and who has trouble admiring the motley crew of salesmen at the business. Nevertheless, Ford starts his stint and is surprised to grow more comfortable every day. True, his girlfriend has left him to go work at Melons, the copycat Hooters of the city. But, Ford has managed to get Alicia to go out with him and romance may be blossoming. Word comes, unhappily, that the dealership is losing money and is in desperate danger of being taken over by a competitor. Can Len, Ford and the others save the day? This is a funny film that was probably made on a compact-car budget but delivers high-octane entertainment. The cast members, all rather obscure, still put forth finely comedic performances while the script and direction have above average qualities. Yes, the sets, costumes, and photography are not stellar but they aren't bad, either. All in all, if you, like this viewer, are forever seeking off-the-map films that are very worthwhile, jump in the car and go get this one.
