Movie Summary

Director:
Neal Brennan
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard is the 2009 car dealing comedy favorite from director Neal Brennan (Half Baked, Singled Out, Totally Awesome). Don Ready (Jeremy Piven), a car salesman-for-hire who travels around America with his crew helping out lackluster dealerships. The car dealership owned by Ben Selleck (James Brolin) is in trouble, struggling with rag-tag salesman, poor sales returns, and as Babs (Kathryn Hahn), one part of Don's crew points out, the place looks like a 'refugee camp for dirty men.'Along with his other two sidekicks, Brent (David Koechner) and Jibby (Ving Rhames), Don must sell all the cars off the lot or the dealership faces being sold to Stu Harding (Alan Thicke), another more successful dealer. His son is Paxton Harding (Ed Helms), a late-30's man whose real dream is for his boy band to finally get off the ground. Paxton is engaged to Selleck's daughter Ivy (Jordana Spiro), who Don also finds attractive. Soon Ivy, plus a long-lost son Don fathered when he was 10-years old, encourages him to think about finally settling down. Wall to wall ridiculousness ensues.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    The Goods motors along choking out enough lowbrow laughs to make for an agreeably nutty late summer ride.

  • 50

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    A comedy without a shred of obvious filmmaking and an endless stream of good, bad, sometimes terrible, often absurd jokes.

    Variety Brian Lowry

    The movie simply doesn't deliver -- living hard, selling hard and, before it's over, finally dying hard.
