I’m still not completely sold on The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, the Jeremy Piven ensemble comedy about car salesman coming out on Friday. But a few clips from the movie have at least ratcheted up my enthusiasm level, and I have to admit a certain fondness for much of the cast (Jeremy Piven, Ed Helms, David Koechner, Tony Hale, Rob Riggle, Craig Robinson, and Ving Rhames) and a boat load of cameos. (Has anyone ever considered what would happen to the space/time continuum if Ving Rhames and Michael Clarke Duncan appeared in the same film? That’s some “Torchwood” shit right there.)
The clip below explains the death of McDermot (Will Ferrell), who fell to his death from a plane with a pack full of dildos. I actually prefer Ferrell in cameo roles (he’s also a producer on The Goods). He was as good as he was on “SNL” because he’s perfect in small doses (which is why his best films are the ones where he’s part of an ensemble, and not the whole goddamn movie). Unfortunately, I’m guessing this is the extent of his screen time in The Goods, so the Ferrell draw alone is not enough to get my ass in the theater seat (Ed Helms, however, may be).
Anyway, here’s Will Ferrell. Dressed as Abe Lincoln. And a whole lot of dildos (dildoes?). Does this sell anyone on the movie?
