Used car salesman Rudy Russo (Kurt Russell) needs money to run for State Senate, so he approaches his boss Luke (Jack Warden). Luke agrees to front him the $10,000 he needs, but then encounters an "accident" orchestrated by his brother Roy also played by Warden, who runs the car lot across the street. Roy is hoping to claim title to his brother's property because Roy's paying off the mayor to put the new interstate through the area. After Luke disappears, it's all out war between the competing car shops, and no nasty trick is off limits as Rudy and his gang fight to keep Roy from taking Luke's property. Then Luke's daughter shows up.Written by

Estimated Laugh Count: 287 City, 410 Highway. Use these numbers only for comparison. Your actual laughs may vary depending on how you feel about used car salesmen, nude women, spectacular car stunts, and the President of the United States. See more »
during the opening scene, as the camera pans the Edsel mounted up on the post, you clearly see through the grill that the car has no engine. Later in the movie, dead Luke drives the car across the field and explodes it into the power station. See more »
[Rudy notices that some paint has washed off Manuel's cars]
Manuei! What the hell are you using; water based paint?
Sure. How much rain do we get around here anyway? If you don't like these, I'll get you some others. Here is my inventory.
Manuel, this is a picture of 250 cars. I can't make a deal on a picture. Take these around back and I'll think of something.

The film's closing credits state: "The producers wish to thank the governor, people and motion picture office of the State of Arizona for their cooperation in the production of this motion picture." See more »
This is one funny movie. Kurt Russell shows his comedic side and is hysterical - so are Gerrit Graham and Jack Warden. Robert Zemeckis made a gem very few people saw and this is my favorite movie of his. See it if you want to laugh like hell.
