Night School Reviews

January 10, 2020
An enjoyable comedy that's held back by too many minutes and poor pacing in the middle.

Night School has all the trappings of the usual Kevin Hart movie, but his brand of over-the-top, self-deprecating humor is in top form.
November 23, 2018
The energy and laughs of this low-brow comedy come from the upbeat banter between the irrepressible Kevin Hart and the splendid Tiffany Haddish.

Any film that celebrates the value of education and its ability to improve one's prospects deserves major kudos. Kevin Hart has a huge black audience in the US so it seems he's keen to work in some positive messaging amidst all the pratfalls.
October 25, 2018
Overall, Night School is full to the brim of gags and goofy antics but a lack of empathy for the characters whose motivations are inconsistent and sometimes flawed means that the comedy is not always effective.

Hart and Haddish have comedic chemistry though, easily seen (and laughed at) when the two cap on each other through the first act of Night School, before Teddy embraced hard work under her tutelage.
October 11, 2018
To say that there is tension between Teddy and his teacher is an understatement. It's comedic war, to be frank, with an ensemble of students who all have their own brand of powerful comedy.

Somehow its underlying goofy energy and positive message about the importance of education and second chances should leave viewers feeling entertained if they're not expecting high art.

The dynamic between [Kevin] and Tiffany worked..I love to see when comedians interact with each other in film, you can always tell when they go off-script, and they had a nice off-script back-and-forth.

The film is a vehicle for Haddish, whose timing and delivery make the jokes jump off the page.

What makes this different from what passes for comedies these days is that it's not about humiliating its characters.
September 29, 2018
Hart's shtick, in which he frequently ends up being the butt of a joke, is still strong.
September 29, 2018
A worthy comedy. Not the funniest movie of the year, but something you can enjoy going to see.
September 29, 2018
It's worth going to see...they don't really know how to end it...I got some laughs out of the movie, and I thought the supporting cast was great.

[Hart] knows his strengths, and with Night School he plays into them.
September 28, 2018
Night School may not deliver straight A's, but the one-two punch of Hart and Haddish aces chemistry.
September 28, 2018
There are just enough laughs to make "Night School" worth it, if you're in the mood. Even when it's not hilarious, there's a comic spirit that's active and never flags, from scene to scene.
September 28, 2018
It has more of a social conscience than most of [Kevin Hart's] other vehicles but keeps the laughs coming too.
September 28, 2018
The cast is first-rate, and the laughs keep coming.
September 28, 2018
Crude, profanity-heavy comedy also offers real lessons.
