Seriously! How much do you love Will Ferrell? Okay, How much do you love Kevin Hart?
You know, you have seen the trailers, you love these guys. You are looking for a laugh. You are not easily offended. This is not a kid movie – so get a babysitter, go out with your significant other and #GetHard!

Get Hard follows James King who is the man when it comes to stocks and trades on his “fall from grace”. James turns to Darnell to help him get ready for San Quentin in 30 days. This movie, has you dying from the get go….or at least when James wakes up and the gardener is at his window…..and he is there too….draw your own conclusions…lol.
I think my favorite scene is when James is talking to Darnell’s cousin for protection (after a HUGE Lil Wayne Wardrobe mishap) and his come back was how to make him (Darnell’s cousin) more money. Or maybe it was when he had “Mayo” embroidered on his beanie…LOL…who does that? hahahaha
I call them the best comedy duo since Chris Farley and David Spade. Look – if you don’t remember…then maybe you need to go back and look…AFTER you go see GET HARD.
Kevin Hart is so funny….with his self…wait…he and I are the same height…
This is a great buddy movie, especially a group of friends. You can watch the friendship develop in the movie…a little predictable in some scenes…but pretty funny!

I do want to stress…there is a scene that is NOT appropriate for children under 13. Maybe even 17 (depending on how much your child knows about sex). It will make the guys inhale…and go “Awww Man” and the ladies may say “What the?” but still….I would not recommend taking your 4 year old or your 10 year old (I won’t let my 15 year old go) to watch this. This movie is for GROWN PEOPLE.

Get Hard will be in movie theaters Friday, March 27, 2015.
