Used Cars was written, directed, and produced by the team of Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale, two young filmmakers who seem to be higher on kinetic energy than on structure and comedic instinct.

What might have looked like a great idea on paper has been tackled by filmmakers who haven't expanded it much beyond the one joke inherent in the premise.

The romantic subplot, like nearly everything else here, is a total lemon.

Used Cars is full of used characters, used ideas, and used jokes, many of which are in astonishingly bad taste.

Director/co-writer Robert Zemeckis has undeniable energy and flair, but it's being misspent on pretexts and situations that seem inexcusably gratuitous and snide.

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.

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.

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

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.
