Place Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell next to each other and it looks like they belong on a Maury episode. You know, the episodes featuring couples that are complete opposites. Kevin Hart is just a few inches away from joining the Little People of America, and Will Ferrell is just a few inches away from joining the circus.
Thankfully, director Etan Cohen realized the potential greatness of a Ferrell/Hart comedy and created a film specifically for the two comedy greats. Get Hard follows millionaire James King (Will Ferrell) after he is nailed for fraud and receives a 10-year prison sentence. James has just 30 days to prepare for life in prison, so he asks Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to help him get hard.
There is just one problem. Darnell has never been to prison. Check out the official synopsis down below…
“When millionaire hedge fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison. Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to “get hard” and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other.”
