Cadillac Man  Comedy Directed by Roger Donaldson (Cocktail, Species, Dante’s Peak, The World’s Fastest Indian, Seeking Justice) this movie is another great example of duet movies of the nineties. Tim Robbins did almost the same thing seven years later with Martin Lawrence in Nothing To Lose, where he was also a bit crazy guy. Although this is a comedy, there are some serious aspects of this flick that I am sure you will notice. With great directing this flick portrays salesman in a different way that we are used to. The trouble that Joey (Robin Williams) kept avoiding for a long time is finally catching up to him and this “worst day of my life” vibe actually made this movie. We all had those days where shit just keeps happening and you’re improvising the hell out of the whole thing, trying to come up on top. In Cadillac Man this created a very vibrant atmosphere that kept the movie fresh after all these years. This sort of wheelin’ and dealin’ attitude is becoming more and more popular nowadays, where people want their life to be hectic and full of interactions so that they can say that they have “truly lived”. Joey is distressed car salesman with a lot of trouble on his hands. The women in his life are squeezing him dry while his boss wants him to sell 12 cars or he’s done. And that’s just the tip. In the most inconvenient time a crazed gunman takes everybody hostage in his dealership. It is up to smooth talking salesman to convince him to surrender. What will happen is up to you to find out.
