I was really offended by Get Hard. Not because of the jokes about race or sexuality, I was offended because it was just not funny. A jaw dropping misfire starring two of the funniest actors on the planet, this one feels scripted and forced, with absolutely no chemistry between the two. And who casts Kevin Hart as the straight man? His role is pretty much setting up jokes for Ferrell and those jokes falling flat. Imagine “Trading Places” with Eddie Murphy showing restraint…or Sandra Bullock being given all the jokes in “The Heat”. For whatever reason, Hart gets too few moments to shine. There are a couple genuine laughs…but not enough when these two are the stars. Get Limp is more like it.
