My friend and I need help with a movie title. We searched the IMDB and couldn't find anything.

Here's what my friend remembers:

The movie is a comedy....late 80's/early 90's.

The story:

The guy's gonna get married. He wants a car (a red sports car). He's going to pick it up in either Texas or New Mexico (some southwestern state?). He's going to take a bus there.

His fiance is afraid he won't get back in time for their wedding.

When he gets to wherever he's going, he finally gets the car and is driving home when it falls apart. So he teams up with the people who sold him the car and break into the factory to steal one (apparently the salespeople didn't know they were selling "lemons" and thus want a measure of revenge).

He spends the night with a girl (?) and races home to the wedding and gets married.

*

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know the title, but it sure sounds stupid.

Hey, you're usually more helpful than that.

Yeah, you're right. After I hit "submit reply," I regretted it. I blame a bad day at work. It won't happen again today.

Not much info about the actors.

My friend thought D.B. Sweeney was the lead, but she looked him up in the IMDB and didn't find the movie.

She thought it was someone who looked like him, which made me wonder if it was Thomas C. Howell (star of Soul Man?). She said it wasn't him.

We have no clue about the actresses.

I know exactly what movie you're talking about, and I remember every scene until the end (after they get married and go to some cheap motel on their wedding night). And that the woman that's trying to sell him the red car has that really freaky 80s look when women spiked their hair and that she looks like Annie Lennox.

Strangely enough, I don't remember the title, either. Maybe there isn't one.

EDIT: I think she also looked sorta like Brigitte Nielsen in Rocky IV with that scary spiked blonde hair look. But, the movie doesn't appear to be in her IMDB file. Probably because it has no title.

Was the car a knock-off Lamborghini?

I vaguely remember something like that in the plot. It was from It Takes Two (movies.yahoo.com)

or a little more info Here (imdb.com)

Sadly, I have seen that film. IT is as bad as it sounds.

That has to be it. Interesting that 24's Teri Bauer was the bride in that movie. It would have been cooler if it was Jack Bauer's wedding and he got called away from his wedding to stop some terrorist car manufacturer in Mexico, but oh well.

Well, I'm glad that mystery is solved.

Oh, you didn't say that Anthony Geary was in it! Now there's an actor!
