    Who is Don Ready? Salesman? Lover? Song Stylist? Semi-professional dolphin trainer? Ready is all of the above, except for a dolphin trainer. When he's asked to help save an ailing local car dealership from bankruptcy, Ready and his ragtag crew descend on the town of Temecula like a pack of coyotes on a basket full of burgers. Selling, drinking, selling and going to strip clubs is their stock and trade. And they do it well. What Don doesn't expect is to fall in love and find his soul (cue heartfelt piano). "The Goods: Live Hard * Sell Hard" stars Emmy award-winning actor Jeremy Piven ("The Kingdom," "Entourage") and Ving Rhames ("I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," "Mission: Impossible III"). The film is the first production from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions, directed by Neal Brennan, creator of the hugely successful Comedy Central hit, "Chappelle's Show."


    Jeremy Piven in Ari Gold mode is obviously the reason this lower-budget comedy was greenlighted, but the secret weapon here is Neal Brennan, a former special ingredient from "Chappelle's Show" who makes his directorial debut. This is the second project from Gary Sanchez Productions, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s company, but let’s hopes this one fares a bit better at the box office than The Foot Fist Way. However, I have to say: It would provide some sort of surprise and relief if Ferrell and McKay could find a better way to title their project than their reliable colon/character name formula. Sounds nitpicky, I know.
