I don't get it. Any of you guys know what the used car salesman was
That line is in the movie because it is NOTORIOUS. It comes from one of Ian Flemming's James Bond novels. Flemming got a lot of shit for it. Everyone complained that is a disgusting way to describe a woman. Especially when you're saying she's attractive. Who would want to be compare to that?
Nobody knows why Flemming wrote that in his spy novel. BUT - True Lies is a spy comedy. This dorky character is a dumb jerk pretending to be a spy. So I'm thinking it's meant to creep us out (it worked) and illustrate that not only is the guy a creep he's cribbing the WORST spy lines he's ever read to fake his way into a woman's panties.
No evidence that Fleming wrote it. Find a reference if you can.
There is a reference that it was said about Paul McCartney.
Several reference to Bill Paxton, too.
