Get Hard Movie Review


This is one of those throw away comedy movies.

It pains me to say this, but Will Ferrell hasn't been funny to me in awhile. When I heard this movie was coming out, I was legit excited because they are my two favorite comedians out right now. Their lip sync battle on Jimmy Fallon had to be one of the funniest things I've seen all year. so of course the anticipation was high for when I wanted to see it, and it was sort of a let down in a sense. Kevin was Kevin for this movie, no problems there at all, it was more so Will that I was concerned about. The jokes were kind of tired and stale, and I was expecting a little more from the fact that you have two of the funniest guys on the planet right now sharing the screen. I think the reason why the movie made so much money was simply because of star power in the movie. When people hear Kevin HartWill Ferrell & even the name T.I. is going to be in the movie, they are going to go see it. But if this was just a movie with Will in it, I don't think it would have been as successful as it is.

Like I said above the cast was solid, they all did the best they could, the script in my opinion should have been a little better. I mean the plot is pretty much to the point and you know something was going to happen that resulted in him not going to prison at the end, but like I said before, when you have two big names like that, the quality jokes should just be flying, but they simply weren't. I'm not saying that the movie was completely unfunny and a waste of time by any stretch of the imagination. I went back and watched it again without any expectations the second time around and I chuckled a little. So there is some funny in this movie if you're not expecting it to be an all time classic.

I've actually saw this with some friends and half was like it was ok and the other half thought it was pretty funny, so I guess it depends on your taste in movies and what not. But if you did see it I'm interested in hearing what you think about it. Just leave it in the comments below.

Until next time guys!
