Get Hard

Rated R 100 min. 2015

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart star in this film that punishes both actors' respective fan bases. Ferrell stars as James King, a financial trader who finds himself on the wrong end of a fraud scandal. Facing a long prison sentence, James reaches out to the only person he knows that he assumes would have first-hand experience with life on the inside: car detailer Darnell (Hart). Unfortunately, Darnell is just a family man willing to take James' money in exchange for bogus advice. Screenwriter Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) makes his directorial debut, and while he has shown talent behind the keyboard, he desperately needs more experience behind the camera. Although he displays a nice visual touch, one can't help but believe it was the endless possibility for jokes involving prison rape and racial stereotypes that made the young filmmaker agree to helm the picture. Cohen shows promise, but he more than anyone should know that great films begin with the script.
