Get Hard (2015)
Starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Tip "T.I." Harris, Alison Brie, and Craig T. Nelson
Directed by Etan Cohen
There are a few laughs in Etan Cohen's Get Hard and when they land, they succeed quite well. However, there are just too many long stretches of time where either the comedy falls flat or the screenplay keeps hitting the same notes over and over again. This certainly isn't a politically correct movie and for that I appreciate its insistence on trying to push the line, but the "white guy pretending to "be black"" joke can only be utilized so many times before one's eyes start to roll. Ferrell and Hart are both fine and their interactions together make up the funniest aspects of the film, but Get Hard is too repetitive to really be successful.
The RyMickey Rating: C-
