This Friday Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart may become the next unlikely comedy duo in cinema when “Get Hard” hits theaters.
When millionaire James King (Ferrell) is found guilty for fraud, the law does not take kindly to his actions and sentences him to San Quentin, one of America’s most ruthless prisons. Upon this knowledge King hires Darnell Lewis (Hart) to help him toughen up before he starts serving time – because he’s black. Unknown to James, Lewis has never been to prison. During Jame’s last month as a free man, Lewis will introduce James to a plethora of thugs and absurd prison “training” that seems like it could be comedy gold.
From what we see in the trailer, Ferrell once again goes out of his way to make himself look as ridiculous as possible. Whether he is attempting to live the thug life, crying loudly or dishing out the worst threats in the world, Hart appears to play the perfect straight man to Ferrell’s blathering idiot.
For the love of God, please let this be as funny as it looks.
