Critical mass: Movie review roundup for April 3

GET HARD (R)

Directed by: Etan Cohen.

Starring: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie, Craig T. Nelson.

The pitch: When a millionaire is sentenced to 10 years in a maximum security prison, he turns to the only black man he knows to teach him how to deal with being behind bars.

The formula: Face judgment with “Let’s Go To Prison.” Get sentenced to moments from “The Longest Yard.” Serve out your time with “Ernest Goes to Jail.”

Go see it: If you never miss a Kevin Hart movie.

Don’t go see it: If negative stereotypes in movies make you angry.

Hard to remember: Play a game where you try to remember the last Will Ferrell movie that was a big hit. “The Lego Movie” doesn’t count because he wasn’t the star. “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” in 2004 may be the answer.
