The Goods trailer: Click above to watch the preview after the jump

The used car salesman is typically thought of as a bit of a slime ball. You know the guy. Hair greased to the side, cheesy sport coat, promises you anything to get you to buy. But if you get down to brass tacks, a real used car guy can flat out ball on the sales floor. The creators of Talladega Nights and Step Brothers want to take the used car salesman to a new level of awesomeness with a new movie called The Goods, and Jeremy Piven is playing the Don Ready, the lead character. Sounds like a match made in heaven.

Judging from the two-minute preview, The Goods looks like equal parts Used Cars with Kurt Russell and just about any movie Will Ferrell ever made. Piven plays the ring leader of a used car sales person dream team that goes out to any dealer in need of help pushing metal. He smokes, he drinks, and he swears a lot, but he also gets the job done. Hit the jump to watch the preview and judge for yourself. There is also an unedited version of the trailer (beware, lots of swearing) that exposes the upcoming movie as what it really is: vulger, politically incorrect, and probably very funny. Hat tip to Adam.

      The site didn't believe I was "Edsel Ford" either.

      I can't wait for all those GM references.

      BTW on the Google Finance news-group I have read how GM calls the BK in their letter to the customers: "court-supervised process to accelerate the reinvention of our company".

      One of the best trailer this year... definitely better than transformers2.

      Must see this with my friends!

      The authors here have really become desperate for news stories. This isn't auto-news.

      It seems Mr. Piven is still suffering from mercury poisoning. It's clouding his judgment about choosing films.

      On the other hand, his hair re-growth is doing great!

      When the trailer contains not one funny moment, that's a bad sign.

      That looks awesome. Pivens is such a douche, but he's so funny to watch.

      Definitely watch the restricted trailer.
        • 5 Years Ago
        YEEEEESSS! I smell a Best Picture nomination!!!!

        Seriously, at least the trailer is hilarious. That might be enough
        to lure me down to the local MegaPlex.

        Are we talking about p*ssy?
        • 5 Years Ago
        The restricted version keeps freezing up for me. Lame.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Watching for sure.

      I doubt you'll see any GM references there Yamasaki. ^^ Probably support for the US automakers and maybe some stabs that even in Chapter 11 GM sells more cars than Toyhonda.

      BTW here is the real trailer
