IMDB Synopsis: When millionaire James King is jailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.
“Get Hard” is not one of Will Ferrell’s best comedies and I am starting to get a little worn down by Kevin Hart. To be fair there are some big laughs in this movie but there are a lot of jokes that fall flat as well.
Ferrell is playing his usual man child persona and is somewhat successful. Hart is also playing his usual character who is aloud to ad lib way too much and overreact to every situation.
This may be worth a rental or watching on Netflix but it is not really worth a trip to the theatre. Some are saying that the premise is racist and offensive. That I disagree with. If this was a bolder comedy that really went for some dark laughs as well as some human insights about racism then It could of been something more. Instead it settles for the usual stuff.
