Typically overwrought Hollywood comedy

The crudely titled "Get Hard" is a version of "Pygmalion" the likes of which George Bernard Shaw could never possibly have imagined.

Here the roles have been reversed, with the learned professor transmogrified into a streetwise working-class regular guy (Kevin Hart), while the lower-class flower girl has become a highly successful hedge fund manager (Will Ferrell). When the latter is unjustly convicted of embezzling funds and sentenced to ten years in prison, the desperate man turns to Hart to instruct him in the fine art of staying alive behind bars.

Hart and Ferrell do yeoman work with some pretty shoddy material, which boils down, essentially, to a 100-minute-long prison-rape joke, with homophobic attitudes that are, quite frankly, shocking to behold in the second decade of the 21st Century.

There are a few funny moments when Ferrell spends an afternoon with Hart's relatives in the 'hood, but the movie is clearly more concerned with indulging in crude slapstick than in delivering anything even remotely resembling biting social satire.

A GAME YOU CAN WIN

James King (Will Ferrell) is a rich broker on his way to jail. Darnell (Kevin Hart) washes his car. King has got 30 days to get his affairs in order and hires Darnell (Kevin Hart) to teach him to "get hard" so he won't be bullied (or worse) in prison. Most of the film consists of Hart teaching Ferrell a bunch of dumb stuff doing racial and gay humor. Eventually they get around to gee, maybe he is innocent, let's figure this out.

Most of the humor was juvenile. Some scenes they carried out too long. The disgusting scenes tended to be short. I admit that I had to laugh out loud several times during a film that the audience certainly enjoyed more than I did. At times I felt I was watching "48 Hours" meets "Trading Places." I am not a fan of either star in this film. They can't act and individually I don't find them funny. They seemed to do well acting as a straight man for each other so neither one hogged the scene. Soft 4 stars.

Guide: F-bomb, sex. Brief nudity including Ferrell's butt or body double.

great comedians but not clicking in this

James King (Will Ferrell) is a highly successful trader and just made partner by Martin Barrow (Craig T. Nelson). He is set to marry the bosses' high maintenance daughter Alissa (Alison Brie). Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) is a hard working car wash owner trying to get ahead. At his engagement party, James is arrested for fraud. The evidence is fake but he's sentenced to ten years in maximum security anyways. He thinks Darnell is an ex-con and pays him $30k to teach the ways of prison.

Individually, these are great comedians. I rather have them play buddies but this still works a little. It's a lot of prison rape jokes and being gangster. It's more stupid than funny. Nevertheless, it still has a few funny moments.
