Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Carolla's wide-ranging resume includes writing, voice-over work, talk-show appearances and a popular podcast, but it's light on acting, and he shows why here ...
Fresh: This feature directing debut for Adam Carolla and frequent writing/producing collaborator Kevin Hench is an amiable, nicely assembled semi-autobiographical fiction that will please the former's fans.
Rotten: Jokes, anger and sentimentality mix uneasily in comedian Adam Carolla's directorial debut (with co-writer Kevin Hench), "Road Hard."
Fresh: Comedian Adam Carolla mines his own career experiences to amusing effect in his semi-autobiographical dark comedy about an embittered stand-up comic.
Surprisingly lame and unfunny
Like many of Adam's fans I had high hopes for this. Even donated a good chunk of change. But the movie is obvious, predictable, not very funny sloppy and kind of dumb. It's clear he made this while doing a bunch of other things. It lacks commitment. I smiled a bit but never laughed. Most of the comedy was extracted from over used bits from his podcast. The attempt at drama was embarrassing and lame. Adam is a sharp wit, an uncanny observer of the human condition but as an actor he totally lacks emotional depth and credibility. He often proclaims that acting is easy. Well, he makes bad acting look like a breeze and his performance here proves why his sit-com career can't gain any traction. Please Adam. Do everyone a favor and stay away from acting.
“Road Hard” Funny, Funny, Funny
As a major FundAnything contributor my wife and I were invited to the “Road Hard” Premier Screening in December. “Road Hard” is funny, funny, funny. I laughed more than I have in years. If you have seen Adam Carolla in "The Hammer" you may expect his acting to be weak. His acting is very good in this movie. It will probably be rated "R" due to profanity and nudity, there are 7 Boobs in the movie, not 8, 7. You'll figure it out if you see it. In summary, Adam Carolla has created a hit movie that will be enjoyed by men and women. A great date movie and something to see if you just need to feel good. I would not pay $2400 to see it again, but $15 for “Road Hard” is one of the best entertainment purchases you can make.
Keep the pirate ship afloat
I've listened to ACS everyday in a factory in Michigan hoping to one day make my own film. If iTunes could let me pre order this more than once I would. My names Will Dunlap and I show support with hard earned cash. Get it On.
