Ladies and gentleman, the moment has come, it-comedians Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell have finally crossed paths in the hilarious new prison comedy Get Hard. In the film, we find both characters complete opposites of each other. Ferrel has it all, and Hart wants it all.
Ferrell plays a rich investment banker named James King, who is sentenced to prison for stealing millions of dollars from clients. With 30 days until he’s convicted, he seeks out the help of a conceived street-savy ex-convict Darnell (Hart) to toughen him up and get him prepared for his prison sentence. The funny twist is that Darnell has never been to prison and sets up bizarre prison scenario’s for King as a result.
This is the directorial debut of screenwriter Eaten Cohen (Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder, Men in Black III) and has a strong supporting cast featuring comedian sweetheart Allisone Brie, T.I., Paul Ben-Victor, and more. Check out the full trailer below.
Last nights opening of Saturday Night Live was one of its best in recent memory. First off, Taran Killam deserves a standing ovation for his scarily spot-on impression of Sam Smith for “A Very Somber Christmas” Special. He took on Smith’s popular “Stay With Me” hit with a holiday twist. We were hoping Taran would flex his vocals for the entire song, but the special was quickly interrupted by an unexpected PSA from Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) – yes, you read that correctly.
Myers reprises his beloved Austin Powers character and makes a long anticipated return to SNL to poke fun at the “Guardians of Peace” hackers, North Korea and Sony for giving evil a bad name. His jokes also include mocking the GOP and also making fun of Myers’ own The Love Guru for being a box office disaster. To top off the brilliant skit, the world’s most evil hairless cat Mr. Bigglesworth makes a cameo for all you Austin Power fanatics. Check out Myer’s return to SNL below, and witness Dr. Evil back on the scene and as evil as ever.
