Product Description

When asked to save a struggling auto dealership from bankruptcy, Jeremy Piven and his ragtag crew descend on a small California town to party and wreak havoc... and move some cars, in this outrageously funny comedy.

Amazon.com

Look out, Temecula, here comes Don Ready and his band of X-treme salesmen, rarin' to boost sales at a struggling car dealership over the course of a single hardcore weekend. That's the plan in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, a scattershot comedy featuring fast-talking Jeremy Piven as the slippery Mr. Ready, who knows how to lay on the discounts, the free food, and the personal appearances by bottom-tier celebrities. He and his for-hire team (Ving Rhames, David Koechner, and Kathryn Hahn) have three days to clear the lot, or the owner (a game James Brolin) will lose his business. The movie's at its funniest when going for non sequitur craziness (best exemplified by the zany-creepy vibe between Hahn and Brolin's ten-year-old son, played by Rob Riggle, whose glandular condition makes him look like a strapping 35-year-old). Good folks score in drive-by bits: Ed Helms does his best fatuous jerk, Craig Robinson glowers as a grumpy DJ, and producer Will Ferrell gets an extended cameo during which he spends much of his time falling from a plane without a parachute. (He's funny enough that you wish his role weren't confined to a flashback and a fantasy sequence.) The central role is tailor-made for Piven's skills, and he's suitably revved-up, but ultimately the movie leaves him stranded by trying to have it both ways: it can't decide whether it's a totally put-on sketch comedy or a more-or-less sincere redemption story. That won't fly, and the movie sputters accordingly. --Robert Horton

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard bombed hard at the box office this August for reasons I have yet to figure out. My wife and I expected nothing from this movie, and with the bar set so low we were astonished at just how gut-bustingly funny it was from start to finish. Jeremy Piven--so annoying is just about everything he has ever been in--finds a perfect groove in Don Ready, a used-car hustler who needs to impose his will on reluctant consumers the way the rest of need to breathe. He takes an almost prurient pleasure in these conquests which, by itself, would have been funny enough. The fact that he is joined by a team of similarly unscrupulous cohorts lets the movie maintain a comedic momentum which never lets up--start to finish. Ready and his gang (Kathryn Hahn and Ving Rhames, among others) are flown to James Brolin's car lot to spur enough sales for Brolin to keep his business from being taken over by...wait for it...Alan Thicke and Ed Helms. I have always maintained that Christopher McDonald, so slimy in Thelma and Louise, Happy Gilmore, and The Iron Giant, is one of the consistently best bad guys in the business, but Alan Thicke and Ed Helms give him a run for his money. They steal every scene they are in, and any remnant of the good heart that Thicke built up as the vanilla father on Growing Pains is obliterated within seconds of his appearance on screen. Their characters make a perfect foil for Don Ready, since they all share the lack of a moral compass and the open acknowledgement that there is no such thing as right and wrong--only winning and losing.

No stone goes unturned in pursuit of a laugh.

Probably the funniest movie I have ever seen. I work around a lot of people and pretty much have it playing non stop. Now no one can stop saying the one liners. Just an excellent under rated comedy

I really enjoyed this movie. Major parts of this movie can serve as a good motivator. However, you must acknowledge that motivation is a temporal emotional feeling that will dissipate quickly if you do not act on that which the movie motivated you to act-on/pursue.

Put a plan of action in place or at least have a conversation with yourself a minimum of 3-times per week about that which you are motivated; until it becomes a vision. You can do it!

Come on, man - if you've even been remotely associated with car sales people this should crack you up laughing. Love this flick. It's too bad the following scene was cut: "I don't know how you got onto this car lot blind man, but you're not leaving without a car."

That would have been the winner right there.

In any case, I know somebody who is just like nearly every character portrayed in the flick, and it cracks me up to watch.

Lotta people hate this movie, and I understand why - it's a used car salespeople movie - but as an inside joke, uproariously funny.

This is one of the only movies where I have laughed nearly non-stop from beginning to end.
This movie re-defines hilarious, and it is about sales and selling..which is my business.
I will watch this again and again.

This movie, sadly, is eerily accurate. Especially these traveling salesguys. Strippers, drugs and lies. This movie brought back some fond memories. I love it. It's definitely not for everyone, but it's got a great cast that appear in many great shows and movies. If you don't crack a smile or become endeared to at least one of the characters, you have no soul.

Ithis movie is silly at times that you still can't help but watch. I love Jeremy Piven's humor in movies like this, I like seeing David Koechner and the gang. It had some good apperance from other actors as well. Good movie to sit and watch. If you like moves such as Old School, The Hangover, Couples Retreat then I think you might like this movie.
