In a desperate attempt to save his rapidly failing used car dealership, Ben Selleck hires a crack team of "car mercenaries" to ramp up sales during the Fourth of July weekend. Led by the fast-talking, foul-mouthed, self-assured Don "The Goods" Ready, the group has three days to sell over 200 cars. But as Don undertakes his newest mission, and quickly falls for the boss's daughter Ivy, he realizes he'll have to trust more than his cars and his crafty skills in deceit to make a success out of the daunting weekend.

The Trans Am at Selleck Motors most likely wasn't used in the making of Smokey and the Bandit. The most telling sign of this is that the interior is golden brown, and not dark blue which was the color of the interior in the original Bandit car. See more »

Impressive List of Supporting Actors Leaves its A-Game at Home
Simple fun with a few legitimately hilarious moments, The Goods never quite manages to reach the point of becoming an honest success. A thin plot routinely sets the mood for great payoffs, but then proceeds to miss ever-so-slightly with the punchlines, like it knows how to be funny but is afraid to fully commit. It boasts a tremendous cast of supporting actors, drawn from no less than a dozen genuine classics, but Jeremy Piven fails once again to graduate into a reliable lead and that front-office vacancy leaves the picture feeling hollow. A grab bag of potentially funny ideas and situations that don't always deliver, it's the kind of flick you might expect to catch on Comedy Central at 3AM. Very similar to Wet Hot American Summer in that respect.
