"Bill & Hillary: the Early Years",
This review is from: Used Cars (DVD)
USED CARS was called a "sleeper hit" in the summer of 1980, but you'll understand why it never broke out when you listen to the interesting commentary by the filmmakers (a bungled ad campaign looks like the main culprit since the movie overcame it to achieve its "sleeper" or cult status). Kurt Russell also joins in on the commentary and I thought it was funny how he kept constantly comparing his character--the amoral car huckster Rudy Russo--to a young Bill Clinton.
This DVD is definitely worth it for the commentary alone, but the movie is still hilarious. One thing I have noticed introducing it to people now: our society hears so much profanity these days on cable TV and music and movies that the film's funniest scenes--when the car dealers hack renegade commercials into football games and the president's address--lose some of their punch.
