Get Hard

Critics Consensus

A waste of two fine funnymen, Get Hard settles for tired and offensive gags instead of tapping into its premise's boundary-pushing potential.

  • It's all awful enough that you expect the movie to end with a title card that proclaims, "Don't worry, guys - we have gay friends and black friends. We're cool."

  • A confused and contradictory mess.

  • Ferrell has stuck to the formulaic farce that made him a star, even as his roles have been shifting from antic instigator to bewildered straight man.

  • Dumb, juvenile comedy has its place when it's funny. Unfortunately, too often in Get Hard, it's not.

    Mar 27, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • From its juvenile double entendre title to its fascination with prison rape and homophobic humor, "Get Hard" practically announces itself as an offensive, tired and unimaginative comedy in nearly every scene.

    Mar 27, 2015 | Rating: 2.0
  • Get Hard packs an impressive gag-rate into its fairly thin premise.

    Ferrell has fallen from grace and all the choices he has made over the last few films have been quite bad. This film is only funny thanks to the stars, not the filmmaker or writers. The film should have been much better, but like most of the modern comedies, this fails to showcase a reason for existing. This was lacking from the very beginning and went nowhere very quickly. 26/12/2018.

    Comedy movies in my opinion should be rated differently than every other genre of movies. Get Hard is good for some laughs from 2 of the most popular comedic actors of the last decade. It's not a great movie but very rarely are comedies great movies.

    Pretty average. I missed the end and I don't feel too upset about it. A few laughs, but pretty juvenile.

    Only the stars manage to sell this groanworthy collection of bad and inappropriate humor, and that only barely. Somewhere in the midst of the dreck though are a coupla bits of decent comedy, sustaining your dwindling interest in this predictable mosh of toilet dispensibles.
