Storyline

Kevin Hart plays the role of Darnell--a family man desperate to get enough money to buy a house in a better area to benefit his family's well-being. He is hired by James (Will Ferrell), a wimpy stock trader who is about to go to prison for 10 years, to prepare him for life behind bars. The catch is that James thinks Darnell is an ex-con--not because Darnell told him that, but because James just assumed. Written by The Twiz

Predictable
4 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nothing original - just a series of stolen monologues taken from past N.Y. & L.A. studios' formula of: 1. Stereotyping black and white views of each other (well, OK, ball park 90% were from the white camp). 2. Stereotyping rich and poor and their accompanying behaviors; as well as each toward the other (well, OK, 90% mostly put-downs of the wealthy). 3. Loads of obscenities for those still stick-stuck in that compensation stage of life (ages 13-17), or just as a convenient multipurpose tool to replace language never learned in school. 4. Lots of sex/drugs references to support #3 above and most importantly to give a dull, if not boring, script an edge. 5. Predictable martial arts action exchanges throughout the film as well as their eventual outcomes. Martial arts obviously rescued by stunt doubles and camera angles. 6. Ferrell looked tired; Hart looked stuck-in-a-rut. 7. Boils down to typical mental movie junk food, ball park: (80% of what comes out of the N.Y. & L.A. studios; 90% out of Bolly studios; 95% of releases from both Mexican TV & film studios).
