The Critics Corner - Night School

Starring: Tiffany Haddish,

Kevin Hart, and Taran Killam

Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 1 hr 51min

After a minor set back at his BBQ salesman job, Teddy Walker goes back to school to earn his G.E.D. After schemes and persuasion fail, he resorts to hard work and neural reprogramming to overcome his obstacles to become the man he wants to be.

Night School, earns two out of five, Roof Jumping Monkeys. The acting was as good as could be expected and the production value was good enough. The execution of the story fell short of expectations. This movie relies on the star power of Kevin Hart, it certainly brought me in. There are few laughs that really earn it. The taint of political humor and race shaming hinders the story from reaching true comedic genius and keeps it from being worth the money to see on the big screen. Best to go see something else.
