Film is about desperate Real Estate salesmen in NY who sell parcels of land in Florida (they lie, swindle, cheat and eventually steal). Alec Baldwin's sales meeting in the beginning is a classic... prolly some of his best acting. It's a movie to watch when kiddies are in bed, R-rated for language.
Kindof refreshing as this based on a Mamet play, riveting dialogue and acting... no special effects, no car chases, no particular "eye candy", no bed scenes... yea, very unusual for a film!
And yes, I have been a salesperson my whole career thus far .

Hey! Look at mine!!! It was the first think that popped into my head.smartyman wrote:Mine was meant to be sort-of tongue-in-cheek and self-deprecating, but I'm not sure it comes across that way. Oh, well. I first used it around 10 years ago and I'm afraid I just wasn't imaginitive enough to come up with a better one when it came time to sign up here!
We bought the Turbo Python decal set, built a 1st place winner, name stuck like glue. Now the retired Turbo Python sits proudly in front of it's well earned 1st place trophy on my Tiger Cub's dresser.

But my son and I always built our cars for speed, never tried for the best of show too much, thus derbyspeed was fitting. I also decided to build a website which I used the name for.

And since I've been known to be odd on occasion, I decided to pay homage to the big guy and combine it.
