Will Ferrell continues to lose his comic touch with Get Hard, an unamusing and degrogatory excuse for a comedy that finds him in cahoots with Kevin Hart. Millionaire hedge fund manager James King (Ferrell) is unlawfully convicted of fraud. With a month before his ten year prison is due to start, King turns to family man Darnell (Hart), who’s after a quick buck, in a bid to prepare himself both mentally and physically.

Review: Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie (2012)

US comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim bring their unusual (and quite frankly bizarre) style of humour to the big screen with Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie – a film more likely to anger than entertain. Having been loaned $1 billion to make a film, Tim and Eric turn in a six-minute travesty to their financiers. Unhappy with their attempt, the executives demand to be reimbursed. Finding themselves broke and at a complete loss, the duo decide to accept an Continue reading “Review: Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie (2012)”
