    It matches up two comic actors and instead of clashing or canceling each other out, they bring in the best possible result: A comedy with twice the laughs.

    I don’t believe that Get Hard sets out to be hurtful, and there are some good gags... but it does seem dumb and dated.

    Ferrell and Hart have a genial, easygoing chemistry and Get Hard manages to score more than a few good points about facile assumptions and toxic hypocrisy.

    If the jokes in Get Hard were a set of Jeopardy categories, they’d read as follows: Things Will Ferrell Puts Up His Butt, Butt Rape, Shots of Will Ferrell’s Bare Butt and Satirical Comparisons of Violent and Nonviolent Crime Not Excluding Mentions of Balzac.

    Whatever one makes of Get Hard’s contribution to our ongoing national debate about race, class and sexuality, there’s no denying that too much of it simply feels cheap, flailing and tired.

    Beyond a leper’s handful of jokes that actually connect, this might as well be Ferrell’s most abysmal piece of work since the disastrous "Land of the Lost."

The film is full of flat underdeveloped characters, that you never feel for, and the plot which had some potential falls flat, partially due to sporadic pacing.

The film relies heavily on stereotypes, racism and homophobia to get it's laughs. The film has a "countdown" premise, where the main character James King (Ferrell) has just a month to get prepared for jail by his mentor Darnell (Kevin Hart) for a crime that he didn't commit. I feel like Ferrell has a lot more comedic lines than Hart and that Hart was there mainly so that Ferrell could make the jokes. The best way I can put it is:

    If you like shows like Family Guy, you'll probably like this.
