CRITICS CONSENSUS

A waste of two fine funnymen, Get Hard settles for tired and offensive gags instead of tapping into its premise’s boundary-pushing potential. Read critic reviews

MOVIE INFO

When obscenely rich hedge-fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is convicted of fraud and sentenced to a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him one month to get his affairs in order. Knowing that he won’t survive more than a few minutes in prison on his own, James desperately turns to Darnell (Kevin Hart) — a black businessman who’s never even had a parking ticket — for help. As Darnell puts James through the wringer, both learn that they were wrong about many things, including each other.

CRITIC REVIEWS FOR GET HARD

Hart and Ferrell make this movie raunchy, silly, hysterical and fun.

Obvious, lazy, tone-deaf, and mean-spirited – and that, friends, is hard to laugh at.

For a movie that wants to send a message about privilege and prejudice, it displays a clumsiness and exemplifies a lot of the ignorance and thoughtlessness it wants to rage against.

TOP CRITIC

It’s all awful enough that you expect the movie to end with a title card that proclaims, “Don’t worry, guys – we have gay friends and black friends. We’re cool.”

A confused and contradictory mess.

I wanted to tell the film-makers where to shove it, but having seen the movie it’s clear that they’ve already done so.

Occasionally offensive-but what R-rated comedy in the last ten years isn’t?-but worse than that, it takes the easy way out and in the process wastes the opportunity to dig a bit deeper and make the class warfare comedy a bit richer.

The film exists in an alternate reality, where lots of guns are waved and no one gets shot, and where deadly situations pop up but result in barely a drop of spilt blood.

They’re a pretty incredible comic duo even in a remarkably average film.

Get Hard features the type of jokes you’d expect from a title that’s an innuendo itself. The outrageous laughs almost make the plot unimportant but ultimately fit the style Ferrell is known for.

Uninspired and unfunny, Get Hard is further evidence that Ferrell needs a career intervention.

Instead of lampooning racial difference or satirising white collar crime, it opts for the easiest, most crowd pleasing humour, and hammers the screen with jokes that get old almost as soon as you hear them.

AUDIENCE REVIEWS FOR GET HARD

    Ferrell has fallen from grace and all the choices he has made over the last few films have been quite bad. This film is only funny thanks to the stars, not the filmmaker or writers. The film should have been much better, but like most of the modern comedies, this fails to showcase a reason for existing. This was lacking from the very beginning and went nowhere very quickly. 26/12/2018.

    Comedy movies in my opinion should be rated differently than every other genre of movies. Get Hard is good for some laughs from 2 of the most popular comedic actors of the last decade. It’s not a great movie but very rarely are comedies great movies.

    Pretty average. I missed the end and I don’t feel too upset about it. A few laughs, but pretty juvenile.

    Only the stars manage to sell this groanworthy collection of bad and inappropriate humor, and that only barely. Somewhere in the midst of the dreck though are a coupla bits of decent comedy, sustaining your dwindling interest in this predictable mosh of toilet dispensibles.
