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

    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

    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).
