Great Almost Great-Horrible Movie

I was flipping channels about 3 a.m. the other night and came across Used Cars, which was an amazing trip down a lane of my very earliest child appreciation for crap/excellent movies. There was one summer when this movie was played constantly on my grandmother's fledgling cable channel (yes, there was only ONE channel back then) and my sister and I watched it incesssantly for weeks. It has all the elements: A young, cheesy Kurt Russell, old crusty Jack Warden playing dual roles, a non-sensical and moronic plot, plenty of smashed cars, naked models dancing on the hoods of rusted out Ford-sedans, a botched love story, and The Sting-style graft galore. Wow, is it a dumb movie, and wow, did I thoroughly enjoy watching it again.
And, Twitter too… Also on Facebook
