Get Hard (16-Mar-2015)

Director: Etan Cohen

Writers: Etan Cohen; Jay Martel; Adam McKay; Ian Roberts

Keywords: Comedy

A financial executive facing hard time for alleged improprieties seeks advice for surviving prison.

Wealthy hedge-fund manager James King, a tone-deaf white man insensitive to the realities of hard-up black car washer Darnell Lewis's life with his wife and young daughter, is arrested at his birthday party by federal agents eager to nab him for fraud. Afraid of life behind bars, specifically being raped in prison, James turns to "black friend" Darnell -- a mild-mannered man who must pretend to be a thug -- to learn how to "get hard" for the clink.

An interesting premise, all-star cast, and moments of inspiration are wasted on an overabundance of cheap gay jokes.
