Get Hard

Comedy


 

When an Banker is wrongfully convicted for fraud, he enlists the help of the man who washes his car.

"Get Hard" is exactly what you'd expect it to be: stupidly nonsensical and immature. With repetitive jokes about prison rape, ethnic minorities, class status and homosexuality the focal point, this film is borderline offensive, occasionally funny, but ultimately wears itself too thin. The progression of story is also stunted significantly due to how much time is devoted to the antics of a makeshift prison. The idea of an actual narrative almost seems a second thought. By no means a side splitter, but not entirely void of the occasional laugh either - perhaps I'm just getting soft.
