I don't know how or why I never heard of this movie when it was in theatres but since my husband is a car salesmen it was recommended to him and it's pretty funny, it's got a great cast.

If you enjoyed Anchorman and Dodgeball, you will love this! Dec 6 2009

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard bombed hard at the box office this August for reasons I have yet to figure out. My wife and I expected nothing from this movie, and with the bar set so low we were astonished at just how gut-bustingly funny it was from start to finish. Jeremy Piven--so annoying is just about everything he has ever been in--finds a perfect groove in Don Ready, a used-car hustler who needs to impose his will on reluctant consumers the way the rest of need to breathe. He takes an almost prurient pleasure in these conquests which, by itself, would have been funny enough. The fact that he is joined by a team of similarly unscrupulous cohorts lets the movie maintain a comedic momentum which never lets up--start to finish. Ready and his gang (Kathryn Hahn and Ving Rhames, among others) are flown to James Brolin's car lot to spur enough sales for Brolin to keep his business from being taken over by...wait for it...Alan Thicke and Ed Helms. I have always maintained that Christopher McDonald, so slimy in Thelma and Louise, Happy Gilmore, and The Iron Giant, is one of the consistently best bad guys in the business, but Alan Thicke and Ed Helms give him a run for his money. They steal every scene they are in, and any remnant of the good heart that Thicke built up as the vanilla father on Growing Pains is obliterated within seconds of his appearance on screen. Their characters make a perfect foil for Don Ready, since they all share the lack of a moral compass and the open acknowledgement that there is no such thing as right and wrong--only winning and losing.

No stone goes unturned in pursuit of a laugh. The movie opens with a scene of Don Ready convincing an entire flight that the future of our republic hinges on his right to smoke on the plane, during which he seduces a naive flight attendant not because he wants to but just because he can. Other highlights include the beating of a Korean-American by salesmen whipped up into a gingoistic frenzy by Don Ready's recounting of Pearl Harbor, an openly racist/homophobic/misogynist elder salesman who despite every opportunity never learns the error of his ways, the uncomfortably sexual pursuit of a man-child by an under-sexed female sales rep, and an uncredited cameo by Will Ferrel whose character dies in the most ludicrous and hysterical fashion imaginable and whose meaningless death Don Ready, as expected, carries as a token burden (however paper-thin and utterly absurd). And in a throwaway role as a DJ who believes that audience song requests are little more than a subterfuge for slavery, the Office's Craig Ferguson expresses a quiet pain and rage without any trace of humor-killing irony. He's like a black Leslie Nielson.

So, do Don Ready and his team sell all of the cars and save the lot? What do you think? The plot exists only as a vehicle for the jokes, and to the film's credit almost all of the jokes are character driven--this isn't a story that relies on slapstick as a crutch. As such, it is one of the funniest movies released this year, and it definitely deserves to be seen. So ignore the naysayers on RottenTomatoes and enjoy yourself. You won't regret it.

Format: DVD
Adolescent humor-yes. Bad jokes-yes. Gratuitous nudity-yes. But it all seems to work, perhaps because Will Ferrell didn't star in this Will Ferrell movie. He did manage a small role, which he typically smelled up. The movie is based on an occupation I don't believe exists, which is a crack team of migrant expert car sellers. They get the call to save a dealership. The movie has some laugh out loud lines like DJ Request saying, "Nobody tells DJ Request what to play." Or "Did you ever have a relationship last longer than a lap dance?" Besides the smelly scene with Will Ferrell, Ed Helms was fairly bad. I loved Ed on the Daily Show, but face it, he can't act. Rob Riggle did a good job as a 10 year old. The movie moves along smartly through the first day of sales after which the plot suddenly changes direction. Piven seriously examines his life, the car dealership is being sold, etc etc. At this point the movie goes down hill. This was supposed to be a senseless comedy about selling cars, not a bad lesson on establishing roots. Had the movie stuck to the original formula of car cheats and left out Will Ferrell altogether, I would have gave it 5 solid stars.

Ithis movie is silly at times that you still can't help but watch. I love Jeremy Piven's humor in movies like this, I like seeing David Koechner and the gang. It had some good apperance from other actors as well. Good movie to sit and watch. If you like moves such as Old School, The Hangover, Couples Retreat then I think you might like this movie.

Not that bad, you will get the expected amount of laughs Dec 1 2009
By Steve Kuehl - Published on
Format: DVD
I do not believe this to be as bad as listed here, and my customers have given the type of feedback expected for a raunchy Piven flick (sporadic rated R humor mixed with slow spots - but overall a film you do not hate or regret watching).

The story follows a traveling veteran crew (all excellently played: Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Kathryn Hahn, and the outstanding Jeremy Piven) of salespeople who help save flailing car lots. The raunch factor and one-liners are in full swing, but delivered in just a way that the sight gags and slander are funny throughout. The second and third acts drag a little as can happen in these kinds of films, but the ride of laughter and witty interaction outweigh the semi-sappy subplots. I have always liked Jordana Spiro and maybe this will help raise awareness on her previous work with My Boys: The Complete First Season.

The DVD has nothing for special features. The picture quality is intermittent but holds out during those important strip club scenes, and the sound is adequate. Hope you get a few laughs out of this. Rated R 100% - even in the first two minutes...nice work.

Brazenly Silly Feb. 5 2014
By mr. contrarian - Published on
Format: DVD
If you like a majority of Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell comedies, it's a slam dunk. If you hate most of them, don't bother. A group of super sales dynamos are hired to save a struggling used car lot and get rid of back inventory. Each one is quirky and peculiar in their own way. The existing owners and old salesmen are just desperate and clueless. The clash of the two groups makes for a couple of laugh out loud moments. This isn't reinventing the wheel. You will laugh but you will also forget most of it.
