Because Kevin Hart is everywhere right now and because Will Ferrell hasn’t had a starring film role since 2013’s Anchorman 2, the two are teaming up for the comedy Get Hard. Ferrell plays a prison-bound hedge fund manager who recruits Hart to be his guide to life behind bars. Man-child antics and slightly racist jokes surely abound. If that doesn’t entice you, then perhaps a supporting role from Community’s Alison Brie will? Get Hard opens nationwide on March 27, but The A.V. Club and Warner Bros. have an opportunity for you to catch it on March 23 for free.

An official plot synopsis and trailer can be found below.
“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.”
