Get Hard is meant to be a comedy, but the only joke is how it ever got made as it falls into the age-old dull trap of white/black buddy comedy where it plays the race card as if the films of the ’70s and ’80s never existed.
Will Ferrell plays millionaire James King, who is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, and then turns to Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to prep him to go behind bars.
Also starring Alison Brie, give Get Hard one a miss when it’s released in the UK on March 27th 2015.
A second trailer has now been released, if you care to watch it…
