Used Cars
1980

We didn't need a movie to tell us that used car dealers are trying to rip us off, but Used Cars hammers that point home anyway, with riotous results. It has elements of screwball comedy, but at its heart, Used Cars is a savage satire about America's drifting values and cynical politics in the post-Watergate era. Kurt Russell reeks of oily charm as a car dealer with aspirations of running for Congress, a place he figures he would fit in just perfectly.
