Kurt Russell is Rudy Russo a slimy, dishonest used car salesman working
for Luke Fuchs (Jack Warden) who yearns to be in Congress, where the
real payola is. When Luke dies from one of the schemes of his evil
brother, Roy (Jack Warden again pulling double duty, who owns his own
used car lot across the street) to get Luke's car lot, as his is going
to be bulldozed to make room for a new offramp. It's up to Rudy to hide
Luke's death from both Roy and Luke's daughter, Barbara (Deborah
Harmon), whom Rudy is falling for despite himself. This movie is one of
Robert Zemeckis's best films (right up there with the first "Back to
the Future"), but whereas that's more or less a kid's fantasy, however
great it might be. This is a true blue adult comedy that wears it's R
rating on it's sleeve. And is all the more hilarious for it. Filled
with a great many quotable lines, memorable scenes, and wonderfully
zany characters, it's no wonder that I love it so much.

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.
