Movie of the Day…


Punk rocker Otto (Emilio Estevez) doesn’t know what to do with his life after he quits his job at the grocery and his girlfriend dumps him at a party.  That’s when, after drinking a six-pack (brand name: “Beer”) and thinking about life, he is befriended by Bud (Harry Dean Stanton), a repo man, When Otto goes home to ask his parents for money to go back to college, they reveal to him that they donated his college savings to a televangelist.  This is when he decides to pursue a career in repossessing cars for the Helping Hand Acceptance Corporation.  The whole movie revolves around a mysterious 1964 Chevorlet Malibu and the mysterious contents in its trunk, driven around by a UFO conspiracy nut.  Soon everybody at “Helping Hand”, their rivals, criminals, and government agents are all after the Malibu.  This cult classic is great because it has a little bit of everything: comedy, action, mystery, and sci-fi.  Oh, and it also has a pretty awesome surf/punk rock soundtrack.  Check it out.
