Moving Violations is a 1985 comedy film starring John Murray, Jennifer Tilly, Brian Backer, Sally Kellerman, Nedra Volz, Clara Peller, Wendie Jo Sperber and Fred Willard. It was directed by Neal Israel. It is notable for starring the lesser-known siblings of many famous actors, and being the film debut of Don Cheadle.



Writer and director Israel himself attended traffic school[1]


The film was reviewed poorly by Janet Maslin at the New York Times, who described it as an "especially weak teen-age comedy even by today's none-too-high standards."[2] In a later appraisal, David Nusair of wrote that Moving Violations contains "enough laughs to be had here to warrant a mild recommendation."[3]
