In 1964 David Niven played a high class confidence man along side Marlon Brando's more gruff, low class con man. In 1988 Bedtime Story was remade into the hit film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Michael Caine and Steve Martin took up the rolls. In 2015 Jason, Jeff, and Trish take these two comedy classics about competing con men to task and see which is best at the gift of the grift.

On this episode we travel back to the lot of Used Cars (1980). The Robert Zemeckis directed and Bob Gale written film starring Kurt Russell, Jack Warden, Gerrit Graham, Frank McRae, Joe Flaherty, David L. Lander, Michael McKean, and Deborah Harmon comedy about competing used car lots posed a bit of a conundrum for the Invasion team who may have bit off more than they can chew with this one. Is it still road worthy or destined for the scrap heap? Find out on the best best deal on the internet, the Invasion of the Remake Podcast!
