Night School

REVIEWS

From Malcolm D. Lee, a director with perhaps one of the most critically diverse filmographies of his generation – responsible for 2016’s breakout hit Girls Night, and the slightly less appreciated Scary Movie 5 – comes Night School, starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish.

The film, which centres around a group of 30-something troublemakers having to return to high school to graduate, doesn’t exactly look like the kind of film that took seven writers, including Hart himself to complete. It features the usual cookie-cutter assortment of slapstick gags and short man jokes that you’d expect from such a Hart-led comedy vehicle, but the trailer looks a lot more funny than his most recent movies.

Still, while he’s not going to win any new fans or Oscars for this film (it’s extremely unlikely, anyway), Night School is sure to keep Hart’s followers happy and the box office dollars rolling in.

The bottom line
Typical Hart-led comedy with slapstick gags.
