In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
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 »

The Goods is an over the top movie, filled with an unoriginal formula and blended in with a mixture of complete raunchiness and high powered Comedy. It shows no mercy in various scenes, but keeps the adrenaline pumped and vulgar humor abroad and nonstop. Its nice to know we can see the always amusing Jeremy Piven in something other than an overrated HBO TV series.
Don Ready, a great example of a really likable protagonist, is leader of a group of car salesmen; Baps (Kathryn Hahn), the foul mouth lady, Jibby (Ving Rhames) a tough guy in search of making love, and Brett (David Koechner), Don's assistant and back-up brains of the group.
They are called to Selleck Motors, a car dealership suffering on 4th of July weekend. Don promises the owner he will sell all 211 cars on the lot. If failed, the lot will be closed. Typical cliché plot involving the hero trying to save a place, seemingly failing at the end with a minor and yet unexpected (but still expected) twist, then working everything out and the credits role and were left with a questionable movie open for a sequel.
The "Going out of business" plot has really come a long way. Much like the film Used Cars it will sure to be a forgotten about movie, but a cheer up when watched. David Koechner and Jeremy Piven give great appearances as well as good cameos like Will Ferrell and a funny scene from Ken Jeong. Although ultimately forgettable, I can't say The Goods is memorable. Though it's definitely worth a watch.
Starring: Jeremy Piven, Kathryn Hahn, Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Ed Helms, and Ken Jeong. Directed by: Neal Brennan.
