Get Hard Movie Review

Look ma, no weights. Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart star in Get Hard

Mayo and Chocolat

Rotten Tomatoes Plot: Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart headline this Warner Bros. comedy about a wrongfully convicted investment banker who prepares for prison life with the help of the man who washes his car. Etan Cohen directs, with Ian Roberts and Jay Martel handling screenwriting duties.

I like potty humor (in small doses) as much as the next guy; but I'd rather die than be part of Get Hard's intended audience. For starters, I'm not 18 years old (going on 10) with an affinity for overt racism and prison rape. That's the crux of this film, thanks to abysmal writing (Martel/Roberts) and blind selling-out by stars Ferrell & Hart... two talented comedians that should know better. Parts of it are funny, "You're about to get 20 likes on InstaFuck," but the majority is childish, crude and offensive. Who knew Hart was into dwarf-tossing? Same difference.
