Just me or is Kevin Hart better opposite white dudes?
12 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say I'm one of the few people on earth it seems that's not the biggest fan of Will Ferrell but this is my favorite Will Ferrell movie hands down. And I'm sorry but in my opinion movies like Ride along, About Last night and Think like a man too just weren't as funny to me as The Wedding Ringer and Get Hard. Is it just me or is Kevin Hart better opposite white dudes? So Will Ferrell's character James gets caught up in a typical white collar crime and is soon to do jail time. Kevin Hart's character Darnell is in the process of trying to start his own business but is stuck being valet at James' office building. Naturally one night James vents to Darnell and the idea presents itself that Kevin should train him and make him "hard" for prison life. The problem is Darnell has never been to prison.

He enlists the help of his cousin played by T.I to help him understand prison life and when training James seems impossible Darnell goes through his cousin's gang to try and get him protection on the inside. That is until Darnell realizes there's no way James could've committed the crime in the first place since he's so clueless. The two then come together to try and find out who actually did.

There's a brief summary for you but the chemistry between Will and Kevin was very hilariously reminiscent of the chemistry between Tim Robbins and Martin Laurence in Nothing to Lose. And I know I'm not the only one who thought of them when seeing that hilarious scene with Will and Kevin in the car replacing the "spider on the head" with a shank.

This comedy shows that the rapport between comedic actors is what truly makes comedies memorable and strikingly funny.
