Car Wash (1976)

Synopsis: It’s laughs galore as disco soundtrack and lowbrow humour combine to liven up dead-end jobs in overstaffed and dying business.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket:Car Wash is an earthy, irreverent but affectionate look at a typical day in a Los Angeles car wash. An ensemble piece which interweaves the lives of employees, customers and passerby...Car Wash may qualify as the world’s first ‘disco’ movie.”

You Might Like This Movie If: You love this song so much you don’t mind hearing it played over and over again.

Really?: Wouldn’t George Carlin have simply written off the “black, blonde chick” who stiffed him, and gone back to driving his cab?

Rating: Car Wash is a bit juvenile at times, but it’s a nice, slice-of-life comedy, and an interesting time capsule from the mid-1970s. 8/10 stars.
