DVD: The Goods: Live Hard, sell Hard (15)

Click to follow

What a narrative needs is enough motivation and obstruction to make you ask – can he/she/they succeed? Do that and even a dumb-ass film like The Goods, Live Hard Sell Hard can fill some small vacuum in your life.

So: a failing family-owned car sales business must sell 211 cars or go bust. Who you gonna call?, that's right, Don "The Goods" Ready (Jeremy Piven). But (premise) can he "move the metal"? Will Don win the heart of the blonde (Jordana Spiro) and get over himself? Will Ving Rhames ever "make love"? Can the protestant work ethic prevail? Well, duh. It's lame, but perfect for, say, a "team-building" weekend sales jaunt.
