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.

Andrew O'Hehir

A confused and contradictory mess.

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

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.

Ferrell has made shaky projects work on pure star power before, but even he seems to have given up on this one. The audience is strongly advised to follow his example.

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.

It trucks in stereotypes (black, white, Latino, female -- the list is long) and plays clumsily with sexuality. Still, the movie's greatest and altogether familiar sin is that it's stupid.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The movie is smarter than you would think, but it ultimately succumbs to the recent trend of going for overly raunchy cheap gags for laughs.

James Berardinelli

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

Wesley Morris

Get Hard turns out to be a far cry from something like Trading Places or even the clever first half of the class-insurrection comedy of Tower Heist.

There are some good laughs here and there.

A comedic duo like Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart would be hard to disappoint, and they don't. But the film's problem is its utter dependance on jokes… More

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart can be funny but you'd never know it from this lazily written time waster. Even the title is a double entendre that sounds like… More
