An education in incarceration
Director: Etan Cohen
Screenwriters: Jay Martel and Ian Roberts
When millionaire hedge fund manager James (Will Ferrell) is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell (Kevin Hart) to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison.
Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to “get hard” and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things—including each other.
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart join forces in the feature comedy Get Hard, also starring Tip “T.I.” Harris, Alison Brie and Craig T. Nelson.
The film is directed by Etan Cohen, making his feature directorial debut following a successful writing career, with credits including Tropic Thunder. The screenplay is by Jay Martel & Ian Roberts and Etan Cohen, story by Adam McKay and Jay Martel & Ian Roberts. Chris Henchy, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are the producers, with Ravi Mehta, Kevin Messick and Jessica Elbaum serving as executive producers. This film is rated R for pervasive crude and sexual content and language, some graphic nudity, and drug material.
