Loved it! As usual Kevin Hart is loud and funny. I laughed so much. Its worth a watch or two. You wont regret it. Not sure why others didnt like it, they have no sense of humor. ;)

Not funny til Tiffany Haddish comes on... then
Verified purchase
...slightly more funny but not by much. Terrible writing, clunky lines. There are pauses between the actors that are awkward. Actors repeating themselves as if it's funny "that's what's up." Jokes that don't land. Jokes that are confusing and not funny. I love Kevin Hart but I guess this is just a bad script. So much potential with this cast but this movie tanks. Watch anything else with Kevin Hart (Get Hard, Fool's Gold, Central Intelligence) or Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) and laugh a lot more!

Please keep politics out of movies
Verified purchase
People want to escape politics and be entertained when we watch movies. There are 2 shameless anti-Trump comments in this movie. This is also one of Kevin Hart's least funny movies.

5 Stars For Tiffany n Kevin , , , ,a low and I mean LOW 4 for the movie itself
Verified purchase
the rest of it was just a low four. I mean it's all right, but it's not like we haven't seen this formula done ad nauseum, the writer needs to brush up on originality. I feel like there was S LOT of as libbing from KH and TH to make this movie rise above the crop. Without those two fine and FINE talented and I mean highly talented actors I wouldn't even have wasted a cent on this. But the chemistry between the night crew was okay and sometimes funny enough to keep it floating at a 4 cuz without Tiffany and Kevin this would have been lost in time and celluloid space somewhere between in the 1 and a 2. movie limbo whre all the " why did I waste hours of my life warching this (insert preferred profanity here)".

Some good fun with Hart and Haddish
Verified purchase
Night School matched the established stand-up comedian that had broken into movies Kevin Hart with the new up and coming stand up entering into acting Tiffany Haddish. The premise was that Hart as Teddy was a successful salesman who lost everything. He decided to restart his life by going to night school taught by Haddish as Carrie to get his GED. There was nothing earth breaking about the story but it was good fun.

What drives the film is the interaction between Hart and Haddish. From the first time they meet at a stop light they go at it. That continues throughout the film. The one liners and insults come quick and fast.

Some of the supporting characters get to shine as well. Taran Killam as Stewart the school principle tries to talk black when he thinks he’s being tough. Romany Malco as the paranoid Jaylen who is one of Teddy’s classmates, etc.

Really?
Verified purchase
So just because you get a GED have a better life, this movie should have never made it to the big screens, wasted my time. I am an educated person and have everything, but this movie put working class people down, basically telling them what their doing is not worth it, neither them and neither their families. People have circumstances that can make them better off them selves but they are still smart, valuable human beings. Just because you have a degree does not give anyone the right to make them feel less. There is people who never had family and support, there are others who does not have luck. we all are important in society, money only make us greedy, naïve and materialistic, sudden we forget who we truly are and our values. Education is only great when you can actually better off your self and family starting with principles.

very disappointed of this message. !

Loved it!

I don’t know why so many people just don’t like this movie — it is hilarious! Especially the actress that played the night school teacher! The movie truly inspires us not to give up and keep moving forward to achieve our goals: as the major character was finally graduated because he’d been doing his best, retaking his test until he eventually passed it! I laughed a lot, and am happy that I got a chance to watch the “Night School”!
