The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

I don't usually do movie reviews, but I was so pleasantly surprised by this one. I didn't get a good rating on Netflix, so I had low expectations. Maybe that helped. But it was funny and entertaining, so yay.

A used car dealership is about to go under and as a last-ditch effort, they call in the big guns: a team of hot-shot used car salesman who plan for a weekend car-selling extravaganza. There's a little romance, and a lot of things to make it rated R (nudity, language, but not too much violence).

About half-way through I figured out how to categorize it: it's like a Wil Ferrell movie. It's silly, random, purposefully offensive, and hilarious in a completely offbeat way. And then Wil Ferrell showed up and confirmed it. He's just a cameo, but it explains a lot. The rest of the cast is all people you'd recognize but maybe not be able to place. Some are from NBC shows like The Office and Community, others had non-leading parts in movies you've probably seen. (Remember Marcellus Wallace?) Anyway, they know what they're doing. So, if you like that kind of thing, I recommend it.
