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.

Alison Willmore
BuzzFeed News

It's all awful enough that you expect the movie to end with a title card that proclaims, "Don't worry, guys - we have gay friends and black friends. We're cool."

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

Obvious, lazy, tone-deaf, and mean-spirited - and that, friends, is hard to laugh at.

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.

J. Olson
Cinemixtape

A deformed composite of every buddy comedy ever made, sliced and diced to the point of total anonymity. The characters aren't buddies and the premise isn't comedic.

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.

Dan Mecca
The Film Stage

Too often the filmmakers rely on lowest-common-denominator prison rape jokes and lazy plotting to allow for action-comedy set pieces.

Pretty average. I missed the end and I don't feel too upset about it. A few laughs, but pretty juvenile.

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

Another throwaway comedy from Ferrell? yeah pretty much. Despite the fact this guy is mega famous and has made some solid movies, his filmography is top heavy… More
