Editorial Reviews

Their licenses suspended, their vehicles impounded, a hapless band of misfits, malcontents and dreamers meet in traffic school. As it turns out, this isn't your ordinary run of the mill traffic school. The crew find themselves in the clutches of two over zealous police officers lead by the Judge to running the school so that the students are forever without licenses and cars. What ensues is a side splitting, tire screeching battle of wits. Who will be king of the road?

John Murray...probably the least known of all the Murray brothers (all four of which appeared in the 1988 film Scrooged)...of course everyone knows Bill (Caddyshack, Stripes, What About Bob?), and many are probably familiar with brother Brian Doyle-Murray (Caddyshack, Christmas Vacation, "Get a Life"), and then there's Joel (One Crazy Summer, "Dharma & Greg"), but what about John? He's least active in terms of a lengthy film career, and in the one film he actually starred in, he got crowded out of the spotlight by a an 80 year old woman named Nedra Volz...oh, I thought he was funny alright, but Ms. Volz tended to steal the show. Co-written and directed by Neal Israel (Police Academy, Bachelor Party, Real Genius), the film stars the aforementioned John Murray (Scrooged) and James Keach (Cannonball, The Long Riders). Also appearing in this ensemble cast is Jennifer Tilly (Bride of Chucky, Monsters, Inc.), Brian Backer (Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Ned Eisenberg (Million Dollar Baby), Wendie Jo Sperber (Bachelor Party, Back to the Future), Fred Willard (A Mighty Wind), Sally Kellerman (Back to School), Robert Conrad ("The Wild Wild West"), Nedra Volz (Lust in the Dust), and flash in the pan Clara Peller, best know as the old woman constantly looking for the beef in a series of Wendy's commercials from the 80s...one can't help but wonder is she ever found that much sought after beef...actually, she did, appearing in a spaghetti sauce commercial claiming to have found it, which ultimately caused her gig as the Wendy's `Where's the beef?' spokesperson to be cut short...apparently they didn't like someone piggybacking off their wildly successful ad campaign.

As the film begins we see various individuals, including wise cracking Dana Cannon (Murray), stopped for traffic violations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves 20 stars!!! July 15, 2005
Format:DVD
This film is the ULTIMATE 80's comedy classic!

20 years later and it is still funny! Nedra Volz definitely steals the show here...from driving on the airport runway, to sitting on a urinal (why is my back all wet?) to getting involved in an unplanned menage a trois, you have to love it! Other stand outs include the big chase scene involving the parade float and animals! Especially when the duck goes flying and in a fantastic Donald Duck voice goes "Oh s...!" And who can forget The Blood Drips Red On The Highway!

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving Violations a Very Moving Comedy! June 13, 2002
By Yendor
Format:VHS Tape
A movie notable to me and our family personally because a distant relative (an uncle) ended up being cast as an extra in one of the classroom or courtroom scenes of the film. We never found out about it until the movie came out on cable a couple of years later and we happen to see him in the scene. He's the asian guy with glasses sitting next to John Murray's character (Dana Cannon) when all the other characters in the film are being sentenced to traffic school. They actually exchange glances with each other when Murray is rattling on with one of his smart remarks during the scene. Otherwise, MOVING VIOLATIONS aims for a low brow audience and delivers. A simple and funny plot where various people with multiple traffic violations are sentenced to traffic school and have their vehicles impounded until they pass traffic school. They then band together when they uncover a scam by the police officer (James Keach) giving the traffic school course, to sell the impounded vehicles. They have to stop and expose his plot to the authorities. John Murray's character is a rehash of all characters of the more famous and older sibling Bill, from his previous work in SNL, STRIPES and GHOSTBUSTERS. However, because he is a "Murray" it is to be expected and his character is pretty funny as the as the [truck driver]. Good supporting cast from Jennifer Tilly, Fred Willard, Wendi Jo Sperber, Sally Kellerman, the "WHERE'S THE BEEF?" elderly lady from the old Wendy's commercials, and Robert "THE WILD,WILD,WEST" Conrad. Also, look for actor John Cheadle (BOOGIE NIGHTS, TRAFFIC,OCEAN'S ELEVEN) in a small role as a fast food drive-in window attendant. Note: Classic line: "When the going get's tough, the tough get's goin'...in the pants!"

5.0 out of 5 stars An underappreciated gem. August 4, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This classic puts the new "Dukes of Hazzard" movie to shame, and is on a par with the Marx Brothers, and other comedy greats. Its too bad that this movie isn't very well known, but finally gets the DVD treatment. The wit, the slapstick, the humor all flows naturally. John Murray is so amazing that you don't care that he's in his brother's shadow (although he would have been great if he could have been Steve Zissou's brother) yes, this one is much more worthy of my elite radar.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Are you going to be a good boy? Yes mommy, yes!" October 20, 2005
Format:DVD
I have been waiting years for this movie to come out on DVD and it is finally here! This movie may not be as well known as "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" or "Better Off Dead", but don't let that stop you from buying it - this movie is a freakin' RIOT! 'Moving Violations' is by far one of the best movies of the 80s, 90s, or any period for that matter. The cast is perfect and captures the great witty but goofy comedy we all love. Fred Willard is as funny as ever in this film - a must see! Buy it now before I have the judge spank you! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL AROUND GREAT COMEDY! August 30, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Lot's of laughs with this one. Can't believe it's still not available on DVD. I've had to use my DVD recorder and literally make one myself from the original VHS.

Absolute best part of this film is the casting of Nedra Volz as Mrs. Hoch. You'll remember Nedra as Adelaide on Different Strokes, and countless 70's and 80's TV shows. You just have to say to people "the little old lady with the bun" and they knew who she was right away.

Nedra was just fantastic in this movie. Tons of funny lines and scenes. Her bit with Clara "Where's the Beef" Peller at LAX still ranks as one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a movie. There's also her classic line "Why is my back all wet?" which is uttered while she is sitting on a men's urinal in a failed attempt to go to the bathroom.

We sadly lost Nedra at the age of 94 on 1/20/03. I knew her for over the last decade of her life and she was a truly delightful person to spend time with. This film is a great legacy for her. She loved it too!! Only thing she didn't like was having to curse. Flat out didn't want to do it. Director made her in the end. Of note, when they air the movie on TV, Nedra's curse scene is actually an entirely different version, which Nedra had come up with as the "clean" way to get a laugh. Rest in peace Nedra. Lot's of Hugs!
