Get Hard – film really funny but not appropriate for kids

get hardFilm and television reviews by our resident autistic film critic Maymay.

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.

This movie was really funny but there were some scenes that I wish weren’t there. Do not take little kids to see this. It is not appropriate for kids at all. I think this movie was made for Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. I liked That Darnell’s cousin Russel was a real  thug. I liked that James King was listening to Icona Pop’s I don’t care song. My favorite part was when Darnell was pretending to be a thug around his wife and she whacks him. She was great and I couldn’t stop laughing at that part. For someone who was pretending to be a thug Darnell seemed pretty good at it. I liked Makayla because she was a sassy little girl but adorable at the same time. Do people do this in real life? Do they really prepare to go to prison? I’m really curious. I don’t think Mayo and Chocolat are good thug names though. They don’t really say I’m a thug. I don’t really know what a thug is, but I think this movie was a funny way to show what it means to be one.
