Casey Meadows (Deborah Foreman, Valley Girl), a dishwasher at an Italian restaurant, has just received an unbelievable job offer: the opportunity to work as a driver at the prestigious Brentwood Limousine Limited. Much to the shock and frustration of its posh, all-male chauffeur staff, Casey accepts the offer, but as she begins to settle into her new position, she discovers that working as a driver is more grueling than she could have anticipated. Finding herself having to contend with stoned singers, devious diplomats, and other raucous clients, she’s quickly at her wits end, but when she picks up a young man named Battle (Sam J. Jones, Flash Gordon), who’s just been dumped by his girlfriend, a budding romance quickly begins, only for Casey to discover that Battle is her bosses’ son!
Writer/director David Beaird’s light hearted cult comedy, MY CHAUFFEUR, playfully combines comedy and romance with adept observations on sexism and class conflict. A late night TV staple, Vinegar Syndrome brings this 80’s classic to Blu-ray, newly restored from its original negative and featuring an all new interview with its leading lady.
