On his latest expedition, Dr. Rick Marshall is sucked into a space-time vortex alongside his research assistant and a redneck survivalist. In this alternate universe, the trio make friends with a primate named Chaka, their only ally in a world full of dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures.
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.

During the scene where Don is making a tandem skydive into the Selleck dealership, there are a number of obvious mistakes regarding the parachute gear: You can see there is no main parachute connected at the "three ring circus" connector point on the main harness as the two are in the aircraft doorway; There is no drogue parachute used during the freefall; Under canopy, there are only 5 or 6 straight cords connecting the parachute to the harness, instead of 10 to 12 split lines; The parachute the two land under is very small (less than 200 square feet), instead of the 400 - 500 square feet required for a tandem rig; and when Cessna Jim pulls his parachute up after landing, it is not connected anywhere to the harness.

Ben Selleck (James Brolin)'s car dealership in Temecula, California is struggling. For the 4th of July weekend, he calls in mercenary salesman Don Ready (Jeremy Piven). Jibby Newsome (Ving Rhames), Brent Gage (David Koechner) and Babs Merrick (Kathryn Hahn) are Don's team of traveling experts. Don falls for Ben's daughter Ivy (Jordana Spiro). Ben's son Peter (Rob Riggle) is a child in a man's body. Wade Zooha (Tony Hale) and Teddy Dang (Ken Jeong) are some of Ben's incompetent salesmen. Stu Harding (Alan Thicke) and his son Paxton (Ed Helms) own a rival lot.
The comedic gags come fast and furious. There are plenty of comedic talents to push the jokes to the edge. I like some of the jokes. I'm a big Jeremy Piven fan but he has never been leading man material to me. He's great at playing a scene stealing side character. This movie needs a comedic leading man star at its center to push it over the top.
