Storyline

In a desperate attempt to save his rapidly failing used car dealership, Ben Selleck hires a crack team of "car mercenaries" to ramp up sales during the Fourth of July weekend. Led by the fast-talking, foul-mouthed, self-assured Don "The Goods" Ready, the group has three days to sell over 200 cars. But as Don undertakes his newest mission, and quickly falls for the boss's daughter Ivy, he realizes he'll have to trust more than his cars and his crafty skills in deceit to make a success out of the daunting weekend. Written by The Massie Twins

Trivia

The Trans Am at Selleck Motors most likely wasn't used in the making of Smokey and the Bandit. The most telling sign of this is that the interior is golden brown, and not dark blue which was the color of the interior in the original Bandit car. See more »

Goofs

During the scene where Don is making a tandem skydive into the Selleck dealership, there are a number of obvious mistakes regarding the parachute gear: You can see there is no main parachute connected at the "three ring circus" connector point on the main harness as the two are in the aircraft doorway; There is no drogue parachute used during the freefall; Under canopy, there are only 5 or 6 straight cords connecting the parachute to the harness, instead of 10 to 12 split lines; The parachute the two land under is very small (less than 200 square feet), instead of the 400 - 500 square feet required for a tandem rig; and when Cessna Jim pulls his parachute up after landing, it is not connected anywhere to the harness.

Quotes

Brent Gage: You can do this. You are a winner. Don Ready has the heart of a champion.
Don Ready: I'm a fucking stallion. I should be owned by a goddamn middle eastern sheik!
Brent Gage: There's almost no doubt you invented the phrase "It's all good".
Brent Gage: In the schoolyard a Don Ready is a euphemism for a hard-on.

It has funny characters and some laughable moments
27 June 2012 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

It's a nice comedy about the sell car business. It has a lot of sexual jokes that wouldn't be expected in a film about selling cars but in fact a great part of the fun came from them… Some characters are priceless! The ten years old boy in a body of a thirty man is one of them; the guy that have had many women but never made love none of them is another one; the DJ that never plays what is asked for; the old veteran guy; the "Japanese guy" that in fact is Korean; and of course the main one DON READY (played by Jeremy Piven): the guy that would even sell his mother! So, in my point of view, this film is good for the mentioned characters, some laughable jokes and some ironic criticism to the "world of sales", especially the one related to the car business; because plot's development is pretty average and the end is the one expected. Score it 6/10.
