New Get Hard movie got mostly negative reviews from top critics. Warner Bros. Pictures released their new comedy flick, “Get Hard,” into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that it didn’t sit well with most of them, getting only an overall 34 score out of a possible 100 across 41 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Will Ferrell, Craig T. Nelson, Kevin Hart, Tip “T.I.” Harris and Alison Brie. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a decent 75 score, saying: ” It matches up two comic actors and instead of clashing or canceling each other out, they bring in the best possible result: A comedy with twice the laughs.”

Inkoo Kang over at TheWrap, gave it a 65, stating: ” Ferrell and Hart don’t bring anything that we haven’t seen from them before, but they create a bouncy, playfully defiant rapport. It’s promising enough that you wish they could have made a movie in which they’re just making us laugh, instead of leaving us wondering how every third scene could be made less offensive.”

Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 50 score. He said: ” If you love rape jokes, Get Hard is your movie.” Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 50 as well, saying: “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. And yet I didn’t hate it because Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart had such terrific comedic chemistry.”

John DeFore from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 50 grade, stating: ” A passably silly but lowbrow buddy comedy.” Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 42 score. He said: “Get Hard is not only a bad movie but a profoundly wasted opportunity.”

A.O. Scott at The New York Times, gave it a 40 score, saying: “The highest praise I can give Get Hard is that it is not quite as awful as it could have been.”

Tom Russo at the Boston Globe, gave it a 38 grade. He said: ” Audiences are going to want to brace themselves, too – for a movie that refuses to recognize when it’s going too far, with its wince-eliciting jokes about jailhouse rape in particular.”
