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.

This was a great film. The acting was great, the story line was great, there's even a lesson to be learned. It is rated R for sexual content and I guess language. Still a good movie to watch.

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.

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.

This film was a pleasant surprise, though I'll stop short of calling it a sleeper. Acting was above acceptable and the storyline encouraging. I recommend it.

I enjoyed this movie. I liked the characters (I like the actors!), I liked the story. It was just a feel-good movie.

(But did anyone notice the phones of this movie? Not one person had a cell phone. There were many phones with the curly-q cords attaching the receiver to the base. And the cordless phone was old-school with the really long antenna that one had to pull out of the receiver. This movie was made in 2013 (released in 2014), why were there such old style phones?)

This is a story of two films that uncomfortably try to coexist. The first one about the used car business is quite good in explaining the intricacies of the trade and how to sell a product to a customer who may not need it or particularly want it. The family drama that takes up the heft of the film is somewhat lacking. It concerns a father trying to reconnect with a son after the kid's high school graduation by bringing him into the family business. Christopher Meloni is good as the father but Devon Bostick as the son leaves a lot to be desired. Bostick is one of those kid actors who are trying to transition into adult roles and making a mess of it. Bostick is so annoying and obnoxious that you want Meloni to convince the kid to go to Cal-Poly like he originally intended. What I would have liked to have seen is more time given to the relationship between Meloni and his African-American girlfriend which is left totally undeveloped. The film also purports to be a nostalgia piece and I guess it was set in the Nineties but the film has no sense of any time and place whatsoever. Not a complete waste of time though the film has a movie-of-the-week feel to it.
