I really didn’t think I was going to like “The Goods: Live Hard.  Sell Hard.”

Something about the comedy focused on used car salesman just didn’t hit me like it was going to be an enjoyable time.


I like Jeremy Piven.  I’m not a HUGE fan like some people.  He’s really really good in Entourage, and I’ve enjoyed what he’s done in PCU, Old School and a few other films.  In “The Goods”, it seemed like he was going to be trying too hard.

I went into the film with low expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised.

In addition to the great work by Rob Riggle and Ed Helms, there’s also some nice work by the supporting cast which includes Ken Jeong (who isn’t featured enough in this film), Ving Rames, David Koechner, Jordana Spiro and Kathryn Hahn, not to mention one of the best cameos of the year.

It only got a 5.8 on IMDB.com, but I think it deserves higher than that.

Not too much higher, but certainly in the 6’s.

As far as recommendations go, I’d say that the Entourage fans should see it, and any guys who enjoy moderately low-brow humor and gratuitous nudity (of which there isn’t too much, but some would say there’s enough to matter).

Glad I saw it.  Glad I wasn’t expecting too much from it when I did.
