Night School [2018] ★★½

It’s not original in any way, but “Night School” has the most important ingredient of them all: Kevin Hart. I wasn’t thrilled with the early reviews, but having seen it myself, I can already categorize it as a “guilty pleasure”, the kind you find yourself coming back to every now and then. Hart plays a likable man who finds himself forced to attend night school in order to pass the GED exam, which will allow him to work in a decent company. That’s it for plot. Nothing special or revolutionary. But it’s the way that Hart handles his material that makes the ride worth taking. He’s a fearless comedian that knows exactly how to entertain his audience, even when the movie itself doesn’t offer something new. So if you’re looking for an entertaining comedy that delivers on its promise, look no further. “Night School” is a fun ride.
