James King (Will Ferrell) is a millionaire with everything he ever wanted. However, when he is convicted of fraud and set for a long jail sentence he turns to his valet car cleaner Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) to prepare him for life behind bars.
One of 2015’s most talked about upcoming comedies, starring two of America’s favourite funny-men. This is an almost guaranteed box-office success in terms of comedies, but I’m not fully convinced of it’s actual quality. Will Ferrell is a very funny guy and has made very funny movies, he has however made a few less funny performances during his career and I think when he tries to play characters in uncomfortable situations – like this one here – then he can be a bit uncomfortable to watch. Also I’m not a huge fan of Kevin Hart, so I’m sure you can understand why I’m not as excited by this film as some people are.
That being said, this is a film that is sure to attract a big crowd! Set for release on the 27th March this year, I am definitely going to go see it, but I’m not expecting it to be a completely gut-busting laugh fest.
