GET HARD

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - TB

Di­rected by Etan Co­hen. Star­ring Will Fer­rell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie, Ed­wina Find­ley, Craig T Nel­son

When a Waspy mas­ter of the uni­verse (Fer­rell) is charged with in­sider trad­ing and sen­tenced to 10 years in San Quentin, he en­lists the only black man he knows (Hart) to teach him how to sur­vive. A pleas­ing de­tour into the world of Boyz N the Hood al­lows for var­i­ous gangstare­lated shenani­gans led by rap­per TI. It’s a shame that Get Hard, a film that sets out to satirise stereo­types, has come un­der scru­tiny for its use of, well, stereo­types. 16 cert, gen re­lease, 100 min
