Critic Reviews for Road Hard

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (11)

  • It's about looking at life as an accumulation of disappointments and having the will to work for something better.

    April 10, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In the final reel, the tone suddenly shifts from laughs to a deliberately quirky romance that feels forced and, worse, doesn't work.

    April 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Comedian Adam Carolla mines his own career experiences to amusing effect in his semi-autobiographical dark comedy about an embittered stand-up comic.

    March 16, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Carolla, who co-wrote and co-directed the picture with Kevin Henchis, has a way of making his remarkably stiff screen presence endearing. He plays Bruce with gentle self-mockery and a touch of genuine pathos.

    March 6, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This feature directing debut for Adam Carolla and frequent writing/producing collaborator Kevin Hench is an amiable, nicely assembled semi-autobiographical fiction that will please the former's fans.

    March 6, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The truth is, I found "Road Hard" to be a low-key gem, a consistently funny albeit conventional story about a guy who's almost always the funniest person in the room, and is almost always his own worst enemy.

Audience Reviews for Road Hard

  • Dec 02, 2015
    A stand-up comedian who had a flared-out popular career returns to the road. Almost nothing about this movie works. Obviously autobiographical (the protagonist starred on "The Bro Show" instead of "The Man Show" and his ex-partner is a late-night talk show host), Adam Carolla's starring vehicle is a sad, atonal mess of a predictable plot with stale jokes and bits that are as unimaginative as they are poorly delivered. The film wastes its first and second acts on repetitive plot events that serve only to set up one of the most predictable third acts I've ever seen. Only Howie Mandel's cameo is at all funny, with the rest of the supporting characters either completely unimaginative (his daughter who serves only to provide means for exposition) or trite excuses for preconceived bits (David Alan Grier's stand-up about African American names being similar to the names of medications). The end of the film reveals that it was crowd-sourced, and this film is almost bad enough to make me believe in the studio system. Overall, fuck this movie and everyone who gave money to make it.
