Get Hard is the new film from Tropic Thunder director, Etan Cohen, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, and this week we are being treated to the new, very much not safe for work, trailer. The film goes down the ‘odd-couple’ route of comedy, pushing an affluent, white male, together with a hard-working but struggling black man, garnering its comedy from the wrong assumptions the pair have about each other.
The film follows the life of James (Ferrell), a millionaire hedge fund manager. When he is jailed for fraud, he turns to Darnell (Hart), the first black man he meets, to prepare him for his long stretch behind bars, however Darnell is much more than James’ stereotypical assumptions. With money in it for Darnell, the pair do whatever it takes to prepare James for jail, and I’m sure, learn a lot about each other along the way.
Judging from the trailer, the film promises some politically incorrect satire, which I’m sure will find an audience giving the huge fanbases of the lead stars.
Get Hard also stars Alison Brie, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and Craig T. Nelson, and lands in UK cinemas on 27th March.
