Most of the time, I didn't know whether to laugh or shudder, and I ended up doing a lot of both.

Featuring a great turn from Kurt Russell, Used Cars is both a brilliantly funny comedy and a good reminder of just how interesting a writer-director Robert Zemeckis used to be.

It's also one of the funniest ruminations on American values, as the car showroom becomes a warped microcosm of society.

Sixties nostalgia from I Wanna Hold Your Hand shifts to bracing vulgarity circa late-'70s, just as Kurt Russell graduates from Disney to conman greasiness.

You'd be crazy to buy a used car from either one of these hucksters, but their pitch is irresistible.

Everything one would expect from an R-rated comedy from the early '80s is present and accounted for: gratuitous T&A, profanity that flies like poetry, then-timely potshots at famous figures, and plenty of impressive vehicular stuntwork.

The film's incessant assault on its characters and their perverse quest for the American Holy Grail (money and power) has the pacing and energy of a 1930's zany screwball comedy, but is much darker in spirit

Used Cars runs on a contemporary screwball motor with a slapstick chassis.

A foul-mouthed, bumpercrunching farce that is often funnier in theory than in fact but, even so, is a movie that has more laughs in it than any film of the summer except Airplane!

It's better than most Zemeckis movies -- for what that's worth.
