On DVD and, its still a classic.

Plot for any who need a refresher

A charming smartass (Bill Murray's younger brother John Murray), a spacey rocket scientist (Jennifer Tilly of Seed Of Chucky), a nebbish puppeteer (Brian Backer of Fast Times At Ridgemont High), a terminal hypochondriac (Wendie Jo Sperber of Bosom Buddies), an auto 'doctor' (Fred Williard of A Mighty Wind), a blind old lady, a creepy gorehound and more, all have their licenses suspended and all sentenced to traffic school. But when a vengeful traffic cop (James Keach) and a crooked judge (Sally Kellerman) plot to sell everyone's impounded cars, the class hits the gas with their own plan for high-speed payback on a road full of Moving Violations!

Devolution here,

When Michael Jackson burned his hair off did he quit?

NO!

He called up his brothers and started a victory tour.

Possibly one of the best movies, I own it on DVD too.

A heavily underappreciated comedic masterpiece that deserves far more exposure today ("Well well, when the going gets tough, the tough get going in their pants!)

I liked it, although I can see why Bill Murray made it further in show business than his brother John........

Just bought and watched Moving Violations.
I´ve seen this before in the 80s and it is still funny.
Jennifer Tilly was very cute.

I love when James Keach chases John Murray into the bathroom and pulls him out by the legs under the stall. I hope for his sake he got the right guy?

LOL

Also, look out for Don Cheadle working the drive-thru near the end of the movie.

Man, great flick [Big Grin]

I believe the region 1 DVD recently went out of print so it might be hard to find now [Frown]

Drain out all the water, take in plenty of oil, grease up that back end, get out on the highway and go at full speed for about ten miles. See how it feels. [Wink]

This was one of the movies HBO introduced to me long ago - hopefully I'm not letting my nostalgia cloud my judgment but I still like it today!

Well worth the $3 I bought it for from deepdiscount a year or two ago (during one of those buy one get one sales on $6 movies).

Highly recommended!!

U14U,

Welcome to The Rewind!

The car lift scene taken in context with the previous scenes is very funny. It's the very fact that nobody with "common sense" would do this, that makes it funny.
