Get Hard

To say this movie is hilarious is an understatement. A personal thank you goes out to the people who thought to put Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart together. Ferrell spares no expense with his comedy, pushing the limits to everything from stereotypes, class warfare, racial bias, wealth envy, and any other subject you could think of.

Get Hard, directed by Etan Cohen, is about millionaire James King (Will Ferrell) who’s arrested for fraud  and bound for San Quentin. It’s then, that James turns to the man who washes his car, Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) for advice on how to survive on the inside. This in turn, sets off a hilarious sequence of events as Darnell begins to train James for survival, all the while, posing as an ex-con.

Now this film is rated R for a reason. The jokes are crude, perverse, sexual, racial, and everything in between. But if you’re a person whose humor has no bounds? Then you’re going to love this film. There’s a great dynamic between the types of comedy that each of them deliver. Although both are huge brand names in comedy, it was clear that they were both comfortable working side-by-side. I’ll go even further and ask why they haven’t been paired together before? Without giving too much away, if there’s a new film to see this weekend, its Get Hard. What would a comedy be without a feature from everyone’s favorite high vocabulary word attempting miscreant in T.I.? He’s seen a lot of features himself this past calendar year.

At 100 minutes in runtime, its safe to catch a late-night showing. You’ll spend so much time laughing you won’t have time to feel fatigue. Get Hard gets a 9 out of 10. If you haven’t seen any promo for this movie we have the trailer featured below. This is a must-see for the weekend.
