What to know

critics consensus

It's ironically rather short on standup from Mr. Hart himself, but structural problems aside, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain offers another example of why he's achieved mainstream success on his own terms. Read critic reviews

  • By the end of the show/film, we learn that Hart is in fact living his dream, yet we still all know that he can only go up from here.

  • At only 75 minutes long, you question whether the better medium might have been cable TV or VOD and not a theatrical release.

    March 21, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • I could have done without [the] pointless framing device, but there is some funny and highly incorrect material here.

    August 29, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Kevin Hart's (Along Came Polly) audience loves him, but if you're not in love yet, this probably won't start the infatuation for you.

    August 9, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Hart's impressive physicality and the background special effects, which become their own running joke, are a smokescreen disguising how poorly written his rambling gags actually are.

    August 8, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • I so wanted to be moved to genuine laughter, but it came in only fits and starts.

Audience Reviews for Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain

  • Sep 20, 2014
    It's fairly short than anticipated with plenty of cut scenes that ruin the authenticity of his performance but Let Me Explain is just a reminder of how Kevin Hart's comedic charm has exploded and has made him a pop-culture idol. 3.5/5

    Kevin Hart Let Me Explain is a decent little stand up movie, but it's too short. There's a little skit at the beginning and by the time he gets on stage, there's only like an hour of actual Kevin Hart. The standup he performs is for the most part, really funny.  Kevin Hart fans will love it. The standup show is at Madison Square Garden and by the comments of Kevin Hart at his show, this obviously means a lot to him. That adds a cool new element to the show.

    Going into this film I said to myself, "I hope this isn't a flop, and I hope he doesn't begin to go downhill from here". Wow was I wrong. Let me put it this way.....it takes a lot for me to cry tears from laughter.....this stand-up did the job. One of the funniest things I have ever seen. Period.
