Here's A Randy Lil' Red-Band Clip To Help Sell You On THE GOODS: LIVE HARD, SELL HARD!

Beaks here...

Given the cast and the behind-the-camera talent involved, I'm ready to roll THE GOODS: LIVE HARD, SELL HARD straight off the lot without a test drive. Directed by Neal Brennan (co-creator of CHAPPELLE'S SHOW) and produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (huge Steven Bauer fans), this looks like an attempt to revive the car salesman comedy - which, now that I think about it, hasn't exactly thrived over the last thirty years. There's USED CARS (classic), CADILLAC MAN (pretty damn good) and... anything else? Jeremy Piven is a spot-on choice for a venal Roy L. Fuchs type, but I'm just as excited about the supporting cast with which they've surrounded him: Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Tony Hale, Ving Rhames, the incomparable Charles Napier... all capable men. And then there's the lady: Kathryn Hahn. Probably best known for her brusque romancing of John C. Reilly in STEP BROTHERS, Hahn seems like she's one scene-stealing role away from a major breakthrough. Will it come courtesy of THE GOODS? Let's watch her work (with the great Ian Roberts)...
THE GOODS: LIVE HARD, SELL HARD opens nationwide on August 14th.

    Not amazing, but it's funny enough.

    Funny stuff

    by semiretard

    Nice to see the Upright Citizen's Brigade guys popping up in a lot of stuff. Ian Roberts is hilarious in this clip.

    errr, I like Piven but...

    by OutlawsDelejos

    I don't wanna see him as a headline act.

    Was this scene supposed to be funny?

    by DrunkyMcLush

    Another failed comedy produced by a talentless "comedian" and a talentless "director".

    I laughed I cried I sprayed red fluid from my anus.

    That is not hyperbole. <br> <br> If I have to judge the film on that clip, then it will be a sucking vortex of anti-comedy. <br> <br> Next time you mention USED CARS, make sure it is in reference to a comedy rather than a lecture series.

    the clip

    by The InSneider

    Is this movie "August Blow-out" or whatever?

    by theBigE

    When Will Ferrell was making Anchorman this site posted someone's script review of Ferrell and McKay's used car salesman movie. I'm assuming this is the same film, correct?

    i saw jeremy piven pay $200 on a t-shirt

    That's the one to go with. The other just reminded me of the Derrick Comedy youtube thing, you know, the Mystery Team folks.

    Ian Roberts!

    by ltgalloway

    He is the man! No one plays anger into comedy better than Ian Roberts. One of the few people who can make you laugh as he is murdering you.

  • July 21, 2009, 11:01 p.m. CST

    Kathryn Hahn....

    by thecomedian

    Is the funniest woman in Hollywood that no one knows about yet. She is fucking hilarious.

    I might have mercury poisoning when this comes out

    by MaxCalifornia.

    This clip sucks harder than Jeremy Piven's excuses.

    The auto industry can provide better comedic material than that.

    I know. I've worked in it for 16 years.

    Fuck "Raaaaaandy"

    by D.Vader

    He's really not that funny.

  • July 22, 2009, 12:48 a.m. CST

    Uhhh.... what did I just do?

    by D.Vader

    Somehow I misread this entire thread and thought this was another "Funny People" viral video. Bizarre. I retract everything I said because its completely unrelated to the real topic at hand: Katherin Hahn's boobs.

    Comedy:Funny subtitle

    by Zeegloo

    I'm sick of this Will Ferrell-brand comedy. God dammit. Talladega Nights was a turd, and Dewey Cox had its moments but in the end wasn't all that much better. This one will end up in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart in a year and a half.

  • July 22, 2009, 1:57 a.m. CST

    But she is funny

    what Piven doesn't wanna face...

    by itsjust_notcool_anymore_baby

    after Entourage, he's fucked. May as well dig his grave and place down the tombstone with the name 'Ari Gold' on it.
