Thums UP for The Goods. Live Hard. Sell Hard.

Despite an unwieldy title, I strongly recommend The Goods to anyone.

Anyone who wants to laugh and enjoys being sideswiped by "off-colour" humour.

Ooooh -- a double affectation! The Russian judge gives it an 8!

I might be wrong, but I think that the term "over the top" may have been invented for this movie.

Smarmy National Lampoon-ism is the style o' the day here.

Just like 'Querque

[pronounced just like Kirky. . .].

I have hair on my balls and I sell cars. The end.

PS This doesn't mean the movie isn't a piece of shit.

But did you ever objectively look at Caddyshack, or Animal House? Caddyshack -- no story, lousy script, unreconcilable actors. Classic. Animal House -- production values limited, a 1977 crowd at a 1962 college -- classic. Pieces o' sh^t

The Goods ain't half bad

I'm sold based solely on your comparison to Caddyshack and Animal House. This could be one of the three Best Movies Ever.

The only thing I'm concerned about is the "off-colour" humour. I don't know if I'm ready for that.
