Becky and I went ended up in the new movie The Goods on Friday at the AMC theaters in Highland Ranch, CO. The Rotten Tomatoes website at The Goods describes the movie as follows:
“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…”
Becky and I walked out of one bad movie on Friday night, Spread, and into another one, The Goods. After we left Spread because it was so terrible, we decided to go and see The Goods and that was another big mistake. I think we’re going to go and catch District 9 tonight and hopefully that will be better than these two films were.
The Goods has a few good laughs, very few, but for the most part it’s nuts like that movie Anchorman or some of the other crazy Will Ferrell movies. I would liken the humor to what you would find in Land of the Lost, except their is a massive amount of cussing, bad situations and plenty of sex again in this film.
The story is about a failing car dealership who calls in a “closer” for the weekend with his crew of misfits to sell cars and they make no bones about it, that’s what they do. Obviously, the people who wrote the script had some knowledge of the car business, but it’s really ridiculous and stupid. For example, the owner of the car dealership turns out to be gay and wants to sleep with one of the guys on the Don Ready crew. The woman on Don Ready’s team wants to have sex with the owner’s ten year old son who is trapped in an adult’s body.
There are a couple funny parts, but once again this is a movie that is not even worth renting. We would have left had we not already left Spread. Our advice is to save your time and Don’t Bother seeing this one either.
