Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart's 'Get Hard' Comedy: Racist Or Satire?

(FOX 11) Is Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart's new movie "Get Hard" racist and homophobic -- or funny? It depends on who you ask.

Some are labeling the new R-rated comedy as ignorant and offensive, but Ferrell, Hart and other comedians say critics are missing the point of social satire.

The movie is about millionaire James King (Ferrell) found guilty of fraud, who turns to Darnnell Lewis (Hart) to prepare him for prison life.

Deadspin film critic Tim Grierson stopped by Studio 11 LA Wednesday to offer his take on the film.

"Get Hard" hits theaters Friday.
