New in Theaters: The Goods:Live Hard, Sell Hard

Goodsposter Want a new car? Want a used car? No? Well even if you didn’t attend on purchasing one on your way in, you will end up buying one! That’s because Don Ready is your salesman! The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard hit theaters this past weekend, and the laughs were flying off the screen like cars off a lot. Don Ready (Jeremy Piven) is a smooth talking car salesman expert who could sale a car to a blind man. When a car dealership needs to sell cars fast, they call Don Ready. So when Selleck Motors owner Ben Selleck (James Brolin) saw that his business was on the brink of foreclosure, he wasted no time in calling in the experts. Ready, and his group of party hard and never let a customer leave without a car, sales specialist Jibby Newsome (Ving Rhames), Brent Gage (David Koechner), and Babs Merrick (Kathryn Hahn) haven’t had a vacation in quite some time, but that won’t stop them from heading to Temecula to help a car lot in dire straits. Can they bring Selleck Motors back to its glory days? Or is it too late for the struggling dealership?

Comedies have been on a good run this summer, starting with “The Hangover” which is still raking in money at the theaters. Then I also gave “Funny People” a good review. Well the laughs haven’t stopped yet. This movie is nonstop laughter. There are jokes coming at you like every three minutes or so. Not “oh that was kind of funny “jokes, but downright spit your soda out of your mouth funny. The cast worked great together and all had their share of the comedy. Then when you thought it couldn’t get funnier, Will Ferrell shows up in a cameo. Now I’m sure you may know, when Will does a cameo in any movie, he’s going to take it to that extra level. Well he didn’t disappoint in this role he played. He had me rolling in my seat every time he graced the screen. James Brolin was also funny in his role as he constantly made sexual advances at one of Don’s crew members.

Rounding out the hilarious cast was Ed Helms (The Hangover), Ken Jeong (The Hangover), Craig Robinson who played as a Deejay that didn’t much like taking request, and Rob Riggle (The Hangover), who plays a 10 year old boy trapped in a man’s body. Trust me its funny when you see it. I give this movie 2 ¾ cars out of 4. I was laughing all the way through it and it delivered joke after joke. The movie ran 1 hour and 29 mins. It was rated R for sexual content, nudity, pervasive language and some drug material. It was written by Rick Stempson and Andy Stock. It was directed by Neal Brennan. It was produced by Gary Sanchez Productions. It was distributed by Paramount Vantage.
