After the jump I’ve got a new R-rated clip from The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard – the Don Ready Story, the Will Ferrell/Adam McKay-produced comedy that feels like a rejected idea from the Anchorman/Talladega Nights brainstorming sessions (which it probably was). It stars Jeremy Piven as a God among used car salesmen alongside Ken Jeong, Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Ed Helms and a ton of other comic actors in bit roles. If The Hangover was the exception to the studio rule that you can’t make big money on an R-rated comedy with no proven box-office stars, The Goods will prove it. It’s not terribly unfunny, it just feels… stale. And I’m eating Bugle Snacks right now so I think I know a little something about stale.
(That’s Kathryn Hahn in the clip)
