To me, this movie is perfection.
Please don't spend money on this.
Don't listen to the negative reviews
"Dick-ade doesn't sound like a significant improvement over dick."I hate when people complain about offensive humour (talking to all the feminazis, SJW's, neckbeard MRA's and culture vultures) because it is mindlessly immature and funny in situation like this. To start, this movie had a decent premise, kevin hart has to teach Will Ferrell to survive in jail. Awesome idea for a comedy. Does this movie fulfil it's potential? Kinda. On one hand, the chemistry between the two actors is great, I love how will Ferrell has to fit in with the ghetto and I loved the amount of slapstick comedy this had to offer. However, there were some points in the movie where I thought it would be easier to just move the conversation along as nothing particularly funny was happening. Overall, Get Hard will make you laugh for the majority of your experience and is filled with offensive humour and stereotypes.67/100

"Get Hard" is a very simple title for this 100-minute movie from last year and it is also a very simple film I dare say. Don't be fooled by the director's name, he has nothing to do with the Coen Bros. And what I find the most shocking here is the number of writers who worked on this project. How can so many people not realize that the script is pretty bad and try to improve it. Oh well.. I guess they did and just couldn't do anything about it as they don't have the talent. You cannot really blame lead actors Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart as it is basically impossible to turn this screenplay into a quality movie, no matter how good their performance would be, not that they were particularly good though. I believe this film is just another on in the endless line of films that exist that were really only made to get some cash and not with any creative ambition at all. I am almost a bit embarrassed to say that I somewhat liked the idea of a rich white man who has to go to jail and a black man trying to get him ready for it, even if it is all very absurd of course. There was some comedic potential in here and I believe a skilled writer could have turned this into a decent watch. But he would need to be way better than the people who worked on this one here. I just hope they won't make a sequel anytime soon, no idea if this was successful enough commercially, but if so they will for sure. That's how it works sadly. I don't care about it though. "Get Hard" was a really weak film. Stay away.
I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this movie. There were moments when I could not stop laughing but there were also times when the whole thing felt too forced. Will Ferrell tried to shock and gross you out too many times. Kevin Hart on the other hand was hilariously sweet as the family man. He gave energy to the film and stopped it from becoming totally low-brow.The overall story was fairly predicable but there were some nice surprises as well. Maybe if it hadn't been so awkward in places then I could have rated it higher. Also if I see Will Ferrell's butt one more time I will need to gouge out my eyeballs. Not cool.Not a bad movie but not great.
Most of this type of comedy is not what I prefer. I am glad that this one was not what I was expecting."Was it interesting?" The pacing was good. The story was just predictable enough to fit the comedy. There were a few surprises.1.5 out of 3."Was it memorable?" The performances were well done, though the baddies were rather underwhelming. The family dynamic was good.1.5 out of 3."Was it entertaining?" The combination of writing made for these particular comedians was what really helped make this enjoyable.2 out of 3.Starting with 1 (because it's the law), 1 + 1.5 + 1.5 + 2 = 6 A movie I wouldn't mind seeing again, though wouldn't go out of my way to. I would recommend it in passing.
