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

Wait for on demand

Get hard is a comedy starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. It's about James King(Will Ferrell) ,a millionaire is doing great until he gets nailed for fraud. He goes to Darnell(Kevin Hart) asks for help, how to make it through prison. Now seeing the trailer, it seemed like a okay comedy and with the reviews being bad, I had low exceptions, but it was actually a pretty funny comedy. First off, Will Ferrell is amazing, he is always funny. He is honestly the best part of the movie. If the movie didn't have him, it won't be as funny. Now I don't very like Kevin Hart, I like his stand up but his movies just aren't that funny to me, but I will say he was actually very funny in this. The story was very weak In the beginning but as you get to main point of the whole movie, it picks up and gets funny. I will say that this movie says lots and lots of mean jokes towards many races, so of your a person who doesn't like those jokes, get hard Is not a movie for you. Over Get hard was a good comedy with some great moments but you can wait for on demand or redbox
