Get Hard: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

A combination of two great comedian with Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell running the show automatically tells us to watch it, and we will have a good time. Yes, we were excited to see this pairing since Kevin Hart rocked his last film in "The Wedding Ringer," and Will Ferrell continues his funny antics in "The Anchorman 2." However, the film really didn't quite offer something fresh even they had an interesting premise which can already be seen in the trailer.

James (Will Ferrell) has it all, a beautiful home, a lot of money and a gorgeous fiancee. However, he is convicted for fraud and only got 30 days ahead of him before he is brought into prison. He meets Darnell (Kevin Hart) whom he assumed that survived prison asks for help to prepare the biggest challenge of his life. With Darnell needing some extra income to support his daughter, he agrees to help James, but he needs to research more as he doesn't know anything about the life behind bars.

You already had two brilliant men when it comes to comedy, but the material hasn't given them a lot of options to show their talent. They are both stuck within the offensive racist material they had to work with and make it funny. In fairness to Hart and Ferrell, they've given their best in turning some of it to produce some laughs, but it wasn't enough to make this film afloat. There are a lot of potentials in film and make it an entertaining comedy flick, but sadly it misfires along the way. 

Overall, Get Hard wastes the talent of their lead stars. It could have been better if they didn't give them a lazy material to begin with.
