This is a likeable episode, and given the observed nature of the employment of the protagonist here it becomes amusing along the way as well.
How well would a used car salesman operate if he was forced to tell the truth without fail? It’s a cliché of course, but one that is explored endlessly in TV shows and movies. Still, by purchasing a car from a customer – who has already told him that the owner of the car is forced to always tell the truth – Harvey is indeed bound by the curse, and it begins to impinge on his business and his own life.
The story has its moments, and one wonders just how Harvey is going to offload himself of this problem. And while the eventual conclusion is an inventive one – who apart from a car salesman could be accused of constant lying than a politician? – it is just a little far-fetched to believe a Russian Premier would buy a car from a used car salesman in America?
Rating: Enjoyable in a mindless kind of way. 3/5
