Editorial Reviews

Al Klein (Christopher Meloni,Law & Order: SVU) and his longtime friend, Ash Martini (Dean Norris, Breaking Bad, Under the Dome) own a used car lot.   These two know every trick in the book when it comes to selling cars.  Martini is a good-time charley, who never settled down.  Klein, however, still pines for his ex-wife Barbara (Bridget Moynahan,(Blue Bloods&) who left him years ago for a more successful man.  After their son, Freddy (Devon Bostick, Diary of a Wimpy Kid) graduates high school, he decides to forego college in favor of selling cars with his old man.  But what's good for Klein might not be the best thing for Freddy, as Freddy quickly transforms from innocent young man into a jaded car salesman... leaving Al with a tough decision to make.

Inspired by a true story, Small Time is written and directed by 24 co-creator Joel Surnow and co-stars Kevin Nealon (Weeds, SNL),  Xander Berkeley (Taken), and Garcelle Beauvais (Flight).

Me renting "Small Time" after some late night On Demand surfing wasn't because I read "coming-of-age" in the synopsis. Films of that nature tend to thrive on performances alone and follow a very structured, very calculated formula that rarely brings ingenuity or surprise to the table. What brought me to this independent "coming-of-age" flick were two other things mentioned in the synopsis: the fact that it was set at a used car lot and starred "Breaking Bad's" Dean Norris as something other than a cop. Coming from a car business background myself and being a fan of Norris, watching "Small Time" seemed like a match made in cinema heaven. And, surprisingly, the experimental decision lead me to a satisfying one.

The story follows Al Klein (Christopher Meloni) and Ash Martini (Dean Norris), two longtime friends who own a used car lot. When Al's son Freddy (Devon Bostick) graduates from high school and decides to put college on hold for a summer selling cars with his old man, against the better wishes of his mother (Bridget Moynahan), Al has to make some tough choices to shape both Freddy's future and his own.

One of the film's strongest points are its characters and their relationships. For a movie that's less than 95 minutes long, it does an impeccable job of establishing histories and catching you up on the moment. The chemistry between Christopher Meloni and Dean Norris, Meloni and Bostick, Meloni and Moynahan- are all first rate and immediately believable. Credit belongs to the script (penned by Joel Surnow with semi-autobiographical experience) and to the actors who sell it. These are a cast of characters who are difficult to leave behind once the credits roll.

Another thing "Small Time" gets right is the business.

Life is complicated. We all learn as we go along about how to get along. Even honesty delayed is still a thousand times better than honesty denied forever. Small Time is about all these things, plus the shameful shenanigans of used-car salesmen. Small Time is a great mix of laughs, sincerity and growing up even when you're already an adult. A uniquely wonderful work by writer, director and cast. Does have some brief raunchy dialogue, but is worth staying until the end and even through the credits which show how everyone fared after the official ending.

Small Time is lovely and laughable time well spent.

Small Time just doesn't provide enough excitement to recommend. It's about a teenager (Devon Bostick) who just graduated from high school, and his career goal is to become a car salesman and work the business with his father. Devon doesn't want to go to college much to the dissatisfaction of his mother (Bridget Moynahan). Bridget takes it very personally that her son prefers the car salesmen business no doubt because she's divorced from Christopher and remembers the hard times they've had keeping the business going and the small amount of income rolling in. She wants her son to do something more productive with his life. This takes up a good portion of the story in the first half, and Devon working the business takes up the second half. It's not much believe me.

The movie sort of makes being a car salesman seem like a bum job which is completely untrue. I'd never be able to be a car salesman. Not in a million years. You have to be approachable, talkative, use creative wording in order to get people to buy your vehicles, make friendly conversation, understand the vehicle you're selling, etc (though surprisingly Devon doesn't seem to know much about vehicles and still makes it work). All characteristics I completely lack. Christopher Meloni even mentions during a conversation with Devon how simple it is to be a car salesman, even though initially Devon disagrees and think it's a difficult job... until he gets good at it.

And that's the basis of the story- Devon gets good at being a car salesman, and eventually turns arrogant, controlling, critical and belittles his fellow employees and treats people like dirt. This is a family type movie, in this case showing a son the proper way to run a business. "You shouldn't treat people that way".

Ash (Dean Norris) and Al Klein (Christopher Meloni) own a successful used car dealership that took a long time to get there. During that time Al got divorced from his wife Barbara (Bridget Moynahan) who sought security for their son Fred (Devon Bostick). Fred is now 18 years old and has a chance to go to Cal-Poly but would rather learn the used car trade from the father figure he missed growing up. This causes issues that only Al can work out.

This is a heart warming comedy for a mature family. The humor is not over powering, but it does work. The characters are flawed, but Al accepts this fact in other people more easily than they accept it in him. It has a happy ending and is something that approaches a Lifetime film minus the Puffs.

The film is "R" rated but contained no F-bombs, sex, or nudity. The sex references were sparse, but apparently coarse enough for the rating. I have seen PG-13 films far more crude. Solid 4 stars.
