Kevin Hart is the biggest little man on the planet right now. His success is the perfect combination of hard work and perfect timing. He is practically standing alone on the comedy circuit and he shows no sign of slowing down. With the momentum, Hart is taking the full dive into the movie business. Which has been met with mixed success. I’m not exactly sure what attracts comedians to buddy roles, but Kevin Hart is in full buddy mode. He starred alongside Ice Cube last year in Ride Along, and will be pairing with Will Farrell later this year in Get Hard. The wedding ringer is probably his best film to date, and he owes a lot of it to Josh Gad. Their on-screen chemistry is great. Unlike Ice Cube in Ride Along, who amped up Hart’s antics, Josh gad mellows Hart’s formula out.
The Wedding Ringer’s premise is pretty simple. Doug is your stereotypical awkward guy with not many friends, actually… no friends. Some how he seriously out kicks his coverage and lands Gretchen portrayed by Kaley Couco-Sweeting. His wedding is rapidly approaching and he needs to come up with a best man and groomsmen. Jimmy Callahan is a best-man for hire, he’ll provide you with everything you need to fill out your wedding party. There is only one important rule, once it’s all said and done he’s gone. His clients are purchasing a best man, not a best friend.
