Critic Reviews for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard
A throng of outrageous supporting characters do little to salvage this stalled effort.
It's a grab bag of comic ideas, but some of the gags are impressively perverse.
This was funny in the beginning, no question, but then it turned into I thought a sort of a very stale comedy.
I laughed more than I thought I would (though of course hope springs eternal at the movies) and if I ran the Hollywood zoo, I'd give these particular screenwriters another assignment.
Audience Reviews for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard
Completely what I expected. Pretty terrible except for Will Ferrell. He was so funny.
Cast: Jeremy Piven, Ving Rhames, James Brolin, David Koechner, Kathryn Hahn, Ed Helms, Jordana Spiro, Craig Robinson, Tony Hale, Ken Jeong, Rob Riggle, Joey Kern, Jonathan Sadowski, Noureen DeWulf Director: Neal Brennan Summary: When businesses are failing, they call in Don Ready (Jeremy Piven), a fast-talking closer who can sell anything to anybody. Hired to rescue a flagging auto dealership during a Fourth of July sale, Don spends his days on the lot and his nights at local strip clubs. Everything's going swimmingly ? until he gets blindsided by love. My Thoughts: ''It had its moments of funny. It even had some good one-liners, but that's about it. The story wasn't really great. But all the characters made up for it. Kathryn Hahn as Babs was just hysterical. Will Ferrell's small part in this was pretty funny. Liked David Koechner as well. Just OK for me. Nothing special happening in this."
What can I say about this movie that's new and you didn't get from the trailer? It's funny, silly, a good time, has a great cast and the 1-liners are fantastic. Anchorman-ish, in the sense that you may not love it the first time you watch it, but the more you think about it and quote the movie, the more you'll like it. The cameo was amazing!!
