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.

A Classic! It'll leave you happy!
19 November 2004 | by egg-5See all my reviews

I recently saw this movie at a screening in Los Angeles and was very pleasantly surprised. It's the most refreshing movie I've seen in a long time. It was filled with incredibly original, sweet silliness.

It's basically about a repo man and his son getting accidentally involved in a crazy road-trip caper. Eric Fleming was so natural in the lead. I can't believe he was also the writer and director! The relationship between him and his son (who is now a regular on ER) was heart-warming and hilarious. The entire cast was great, from Jim the baseball player to Robert Culp as the partner. Refreshing is definitely the word. I'm still laughing over the character Bigger.

Hopefully this will get released soon so my friends can see it... and so I can see it again.

It appears that this is Mr. Fleming's first feature. Great stuff. Looking forward to the next one!
