Director: Etan Cohen
Starring: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart
Finally, after the moronic Anchorman II, Will Ferrell redeems himself in this comedy which will have audiences laughing out laugh and anticipating the next gag.
James King (Ferrell) is a wealthy but brainless fund manager who has been framed for embezzlement and fraud. With his jail sentence in a maximum security prison to commence in 30 days, he enlists the aid of an alleged black ex-con (Kevin Hart) to prepare him in self-defence for the violence and sexual assaults which he will most likely encounter.
The gags just keep rolling freely and as you would expect in a Ferrell comedy, there's plenty of crude toilet humour and colourful language which may disenchant sensitive movie-goers.
Racist innuendos are prevalent and the sequence in which Ferrell attempts his first oral sex experience in a menís public toilet is hilarious, but ultimately crosses the line of decency.
With major reviewers panning this film and the American black and gay population being stereotyped and ridiculed throughout, it will be quite interesting to see how it performs at the all-important US box office. JAKE
