Cadillac Man Review

Image for Cadillac Man

Joe is a car salesman with a problem. He has two days to sell 12 cars or he loses his job. Adding to his troubles are two girlfriends, a missing daughter, an angry ex-wife and a crazy jealous husband toting a machine gun.

★★★★★

Robin Williams is surprisingly unfunny, directed by Cocktail helmer Roger Donaldson, as car salesman Joey O’Brien - a shyster with a string of hysterical women, a demanding ex-wife - pressed to make a string of important sales against the clock. Tom Robbins overacts horribly as an angry hostage taking husband of one of Williams' sweethearts. Perhaps this film would have benfitted from progressing to a full blown tragedy rather than the poor excuse for an eccentric comedy. Maybe then the image of a used car salesman as a good guy would be plausible. It certainly doesn't appeal as a slice of post-modern irony within the context of a goodball comdedy.

Even worse than it sounds
