Reminds me of my trip to the car dealer
17 September 2019 | by borg1005-1See all my reviews

Entertaining film with interesting, well-played characters. An enjoyable 90 minutes without F-bombs being dropped every 60 seconds - in fact, none that I can recall. I ended up buying the DVD.

The selling techniques were a hoot and reminded me of some salesmen I have run into, played to perfection by Matt Kaminsky and Mel Fair.

I really enjoyed hating Fair's character and eventually warmed up to Kaminsky's b/s but decent salesman character.

One thing that really appealed to me was that Matt's wife was not the blonde bimbo usually seen in these types of movies. Brooke Baumer's solid performance as the stand-by-your man wife was a refreshing relief.

The kids were good, not that wise beyond their years smart-mouthing brats - another staple.

I sorta figured out the ending, but liked the way everything was wrapped up.

Watch this when you get a chance.
