Opening on August 14th is director Neal Brennan’s “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard”. The film stars Jeremy Piven as a used car salesman named Don Ready and it’s filled with tons of familiar faces from the comedy world. Unfortunately, based on the clips, I think they needed a few more comedians, as I was not impressed with the footage.
While I’m a fan of what Jeremy Piven does on “Entourage”, and I’d love for him to make the leap to the big screen, I don’t know if this is the film that’s going to do it. Judge for yourself after the jump.
Here’s the synopsis:
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 ailing local car dealership from bankruptcy, Ready and his ragtag crew descend on the town of Temecula like a pack of coyotes on a basket full of burgers. Selling, drinking, selling and going to strip clubs is their stock and trade. And they do it well. What Don doesn’t expect is to fall in love and find his soul (cue heartfelt piano).
