Get Hard, if you couldn't tell by the trailer, is a racist, trashy movie that will surely be forgotten come the end of the year, after I've released my worst of 2015 list of course. The jokes rarely work, but I do give them credit for consistency. They're consistent in content, filling up their entire runtime with racist jokes that are never funny. The only times I did chuckle, and trust me when I say this wasn't at all often, were the brief moments when they'd discuss something else, such as Will Ferrell sitting in a car with a knife in his head discussing how Kevin Hart is his father, which he obviously isn't. It's the only scene in the whole film that manages to stand out, and it's one of the only moments I remember giving off a slight chuckle to.
What also manages to bring this film even further down is the screenplay, if there was even one present when they were filming. It's not the jokes, it's not the cast (well, it's technically both of those, but that's not what I'm talking about right here). It's the lack of story and predictability of the outcome. Not a lot happens story wise. Most of the characters are the same as they are at the start of the film, the plot goes exactly where you expect it to go and 85% of this movie is simply preparing for rape, and that sure as hell isn't funny to watch. Will, I don't care how inconsistent some of your movies are, just go back to doing things as hilarious as Anchorman. Please let this be a one-off.
