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.
