Rowdy Red Band Trailer for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard
by Alex Billington
July 27, 2009
This newest red band trailer for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard is a lot better than the previous tame and lame version. This newer one is a lot more rowdy and a lot more vulgar, but of course, that's what they need to show people to get them into theaters - because I don't think anyone wants to even see this. I know I don't. The comedy in this just looks terribly stupid, nothing at all in it looks funny, not even Jeremy Piven or Ed Helms. But that's probably just me, and I'm sure a lot of other people will probably enjoy it and I've got no problems with that. Anyway, if you want a better sense of what this will be like, then watch this trailer.
Watch the red band trailer for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard:
Who is Don Ready? Salesman? Lover? Song Stylist? Semi-professional dolphin trainer? Ready is all of the above, except for a dolphin trainer. When he's asked to help save an local car dealership from bankruptcy, Ready and his crew descend on the town of Temecula like a pack of coyotes on a basket full of burgers.
The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard is directed by first-time filmmaker Neal Brennan, of only some episodes of "Chappelle's Show" and the TV movie Totally Awesome previously. The screenplay was co-written by newcomers Andy Stock and Rick Stempson. Paramount will debut The Goods in theaters on August 14th.

I love a good dumb comedy like anyone else. But this has no energy and seems to be using humor from the Nerds and Porky's era. Maybe we'll see a better trailer later, but for now it looks like a renter at best.

well Ed Helms rules

This movie seems close to ripping off the classic movie "Used Cars" with Kurt Russell and Jack Warden.

Funny, cars aren't that amusing, isn't that industry dead? It'd be more hilarious filming some guys coming home from their jobs to tell their families they were getting laid off from the auto plant, now that would be hilarious.

That looks awful.

Another spray of bile from Mr Billington. Sir, your blog is essential reading. Why do you cheapen it with these misguided and totally unnecessary opinions? Why not simply let your readers decide on the merits of trailers? Connecting Hollywood with its audience? More like doing your damndest to alienate them.

Anybody remember "Used Cars" with Kurt Russell? This movie kinda reminds me of that movie. But that movie is a classic.

I love Jeremy Piven, but Ed Helms really looks the shit in this one. I'll be there.
Rob on Jul 28, 2009
I dunno, this movie looks funny to me.
Andrew on Jul 28, 2009
I like Jeremy Piven and I like everyone else in the movie, but this doesn't look good at all.
SkaOreo on Jul 28, 2009
Looks like I'm in the minority here, looks fucking funny as hell to me.

Don't short-change Neal Brennan. To say that he is "of only some episodes of "Chappelle's Show" is almost slanderous. Neal was Chappelle's PARTNER in writing for many years and played a major part in creating some of the funniest skits from that show (which, for the most part, still stand up as relevant and hilarious). Just saying...

Great actors in a B movie.
