Editorial Reviews

Whether he's pitching himself or the high-priced luxury cars at Turgeon Auto Sales, Joey O'Brien (Robin Williams) never lets a day go by without "doing" someone good. But Joey's schmoozed through life on cruise control for way too long...and now he's riding in the hot seat! Co-starring Tim Robbins (The Player), Pamela Reed (Kindergarten Cop) and Fran Drescher ("The Nanny"), Cadillac Man is a non-stop joy ride of comic lunacy! Joey O'Brien's got some serious troubles. A mafioso wants his hide. The women in his lifean ex-wife, a space cadet girlfriend and someone else's wifeare all trying his patience. And to top it off, Turgeon Auto's inventory is priced to goand so is he unless sales pick up. But just when Joey thought it could get no worse itdoes! Into the showroom walks Larry (Robbins), a lunkhead terminator with an axe to grind. He's notexactly looking for a new set of whitewalls. He's loaded down with explosives and looking for the man who's been "doing" his wife! Now in a life-or-death situation, Joey is forced to do the one thinghe does best...lie!

Format: VHS Tape
Critics (and I guess most audiences) seem to dislike this movie for looking like one kind of movie and yet turning into another and for not deciding whether it wants to be a comedy or a hostage drama. The beauty of the film the many times I have seen it is that it DOES make one both "laugh and cry," or, if not cry, "laugh and care" as though the characters are worth emoting with a little. Why is that bad? I don't know.
The other major criticism is similar, it is that the film should be either about sly carsalesman in a competition for their jobs or it should be about a hostage crisis and not spend the entire exposition setting us up for a car sales competition. Again, that the movie should pick what it is about more clearly, is the critique. This criticism seems thoroughly not to feel with the movie but impose expectations of formula unfairly on a surprising movie. The movie sets up the audience to empathize with the screwed up priorities of its screwed up protagonist (Robin Williams) only to put those priorities and all of his life in perspective with the insurgance of Tim Robbins' character into the situation.
It is a great movie about rediscovering what is important when there is a gun to one's head. AND a really funny comedy, so it is a movie that works both dramatically and comedically and genuinely turns me from a little sleazed by the beginning to feeling a little warm and gooey inside by the end. If only more films moved in that direction, daring to break with formula and introduce genuine drama while still managing to uplift the spirit by the end in a way that feels genuine, maybe we'd have more than one or two comedies worth watching every year.
Plus, Tim Robbins and Robin Williams are perfect in their roles and there's always the pre-nanny Fran Drescher to get a kick out of.
A movie that is definitely worthwile and deserving of the DVD release that it likely will be unthinkingly and unjustly denied.

Largely unknown and underrated, this film is truly marvelous. It was skewered by critics when it first opened with them calling it "uneven" and "odd." In fact, I hadn't known about it till a friend recommended it to me. When I rented it, I was truly touched. I understood that the film was supposed to be funny, but I can never say I truly laughed. Certainly not because it failed at this, but it is because these "jokes" and "one-liners" are who we are. This film represents the common men of society: hard-working, flawed, and sometimes easily manipulated. It carries out everything about the average joe (like me) so movingly and (oh yes) even powerfully that you don't know what genre this movie belongs in. In my local Blockbuster Video store, it is in the comedy section. In other video rental stores I've been in, it was in drama. Yet this movie belongs in a category of its own: the LIFE category. It is a film about the beauty and downfall of all of us. The cast: Williams, Robbins, and all the gals involved were perfectly cast in their stereotypical roles. It isn't a by-the-numbers cheery little comedy, but it is realistic and, just like in life, shows how we can start out from slapstick and work our way down to being held hostage at gunpoint having our lives on the line.

For us living outside the US Cadillac Man is a masterpiece of a light comedy, a sort of essential oil of Americana.
People and situations are both funny, real and so human, so far from the boring, rigid realities of old Europe.
We love it.

I thought the film was terrific. Robin Williams was as usual, brilliant. This was a dark comic gem about a man who loves being a salesman, having to make a sale for his life; and along the way, he discovers it -- his life, that is -- and with it, his humanity. There's rich humor here, pathos, feeling . . . I didn't look at the clock once, never wished the film further along. I note the negative reviews, and it's a good reason sometimes not to let advance reviews spoil your pleasure. Ignore the reviews. If you like Robin Williams, this is a film not to miss.

I saw this film back in 1990, when it first opened in theatres and I love it. Everything about it is extravagent: music, acting, set, dialouge, and plot. It is a funny yet suspenseful comedy/drama that will make you stick to your seat watching until the very end. Even during the closing credits, I wanted to sit through these to listen to that wonderful "Cadillac Man" song. Worth owning for the music alone!

That's the basic problem. This film can't seem to make up its mind whether it wants to be a comedy or a hostage drama.
The acting is really pretty good -- how can it not be with Robin Williams, Tim Robbins and Fran Drescher? But the audience never knows whether to laugh or cry.
Five stars for creativity and taking a big chance. Unfortunately it doesn't work.

Robin Williams is so sleazy in this movie that it's easy to dislike the film, but it's a fine performance with great chemistry between him and Tim Robbins. Lots of laughs, and in the end, it turns out to be quite a "feel-good" movie. Watch it more than once... it keeps getting funnier!

I enjoyed watching this and play it a lot. I love the comedy and craziness of Robin Williams! Tim Robbins character was sorta alright but I'm NOT a big fan of his films where his role as an actor really doesn't tickle my fancy! Anyway, good flick to watch!
