75
A cheerfully energetically and very vulgar comedy.
63
Sloppy, grimy but quick on its feet, which puts it ahead of certain other (“The Hangover”) R-rated comedies (“The Hangover”) we've seen this summer (“The Hangover”).

Ed Helms and Ving Rhames score laughs. But the breakout is "Step Brothers'" Kathryn Hahn as the tough (sales)girl who keeps up with the boys.

Feels forgettable, even though, in the moment, it's often very funny.

You put up the cash, the movie clunks.

Although Will Ferrell materializes for a goofball cameo, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard lacks a key element that his "Talladega Nights" and "Anchor Man" both had - that is, somebody to like.
40
The oh-so-out-there mentality earns some chuckles, but that, along with Piven's preening, gets very trying. A hard sell is still a hard sell.

Jeremy Piven's infamous "sushi defense" for skipping out on a Broadway role is easier to swallow than his performance as a scuzzy auto liquidator who sees the light in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.

Miami Herald
How can a movie as overstuffed with funny people as The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard be so listless and leaden?

Premiere
If you are a fan of brainless comedy that willed with bits that seque magically into some semblance of a plot...then The Goods is for you.

Tediously one-note comedy.
