    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Feels forgettable, even though, in the moment, it's often very funny. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Although Will Ferrell materializes for a goofball cameo, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard lacks a key element that his "Talladega Nights" and "Anchor Man" both had - that is, somebody to like. show more

    The oh-so-out-there mentality earns some chuckles, but that, along with Piven's preening, gets very trying. A hard sell is still a hard sell. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A cheerfully energetically and very vulgar comedy. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Sloppy, grimy but quick on its feet, which puts it ahead of certain other (“The Hangover”) R-rated comedies (“The Hangover”) we’ve seen this summer (“The Hangover”). show more

    You put up the cash, the movie clunks. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Jeremy Piven's infamous "sushi defense" for skipping out on a Broadway role is easier to swallow than his performance as a scuzzy auto liquidator who sees the light in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    How can a movie as overstuffed with funny people as The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard be so listless and leaden? show more

    If you are a fan of brainless comedy that willed with bits that seque magically into some semblance of a plot…then The Goods is for you. show more

    Overall a fairly funny movie, but is very strong with many laugh out loud moments. It\'s worth watching and I\'ll probably watch it again.

    Come on, it wasn't that bad! You have to be in or have been in the car business to really appreciate the movie. Brings back fond memories of my tent sale days! If your not a car person you won't see the humor in it.

    Another thoughtless boner comedy that needs to include ****** to induce laughter. Go see District 9 if you seek thorough entertainment. Best film since (whatever sci-fi film you last saw and loved).

    Oy, I would have seen this movie-but, I got food poisoning from a bad dish of shell fish and had to drop out of my role as a movie goer.

    Jerrry Piven is not and never has been funny...well except in Old School where Kilby's Porsche landed on his head and exploded.

    what the hell people you obviously have no taste in humor. This movie was so funny, like what the **** how could anybody complain about it. You should all be put down and sent to a home for not saying this movie was really bad. You know what movie was really bad, TROPIC THUNDER. that movie ***********, yet people actually went online and wrote reviews saying it was funny. yeah, this movie had some non funny parts, but not every movie can be as funny as like the hangover, or step brothers. you people need to get a life, i almost didnt see this movie because you ******** said it was dumb.

    This is the worst comedy I have EVER seen in my life! Seriously, the worst. I was a big fan of Pivens, but not anymore. This is just low rate, desperate for laughs, pathetic film. I sat there wondering if I (or anyone else in the theater) would laugh at anything. One laugh only. I see a lot of films, have directed a lot of MTV videos and can honestly say that this film is a complete waste of time and money.

    Sorry to say, it was not just bad, but really bad. I didn't laugh once during the whole movie. Several people got up and left, I should have joined them.
