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.

Such sexual tone-deafness is especially infuriating because the film is almost enlightened in other areas.
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
There's a lot of sophomoric silliness Night School feels obligated to perform. But there's a heap of good intentions behind it, and enough big laughs to make us want to forgive it in the end.

If forced to choose, skip Night School -- a remedial-level comedy with Kevin Hart [and Tiffany Haddish].
September 28, 2018
It's to the credit of Lee and his collaborators that Night School pitches a comedic tent big enough to contain something silly for everyone.
September 28, 2018
Haddish is given little to work with - a fact that is almost criminal considering how her rising star power over the past year is almost entirely indebted to her charisma and disarming slapstick style.
September 28, 2018
Hart and Haddish are both wildly gifted comedians, but "Night School" doesn't allow them to riff.
September 27, 2018
For all her improvisational skill and that of her top-billed costar, the much-vaunted Hart-and-Haddish pairing never pays dividends. It feels more like Half-and-Half.
September 27, 2018
Night School's sextet of writers, Hart being one of them, have a lot of individual jokes they want to tell. But nothing really adds up to a whole story and there's nothing they want to say.
September 27, 2018
Night School is a straightforward concept that relies too much on the charisma of its performers to carry a weak script. It didn't do its homework.
September 27, 2018
On occasion this Kevin Hart vehicle dabbles in real-world situations, but for the most part it's a feature-length sitcom that doesn't take full advantage of the wonderfully talented cast and settles for being ... OK.
September 27, 2018
The film's poster has that classic '90s fold-your-arms-and-lean pose, and indeed it feels like a timeworn story that's been dusted off and given a 2018 makeover.
September 27, 2018
Only a fool would say that Hart and Haddish aren't hilarious. But only a dumbass would argue that their new comedy isn't the worst kind of lazy, laughless, paycheck-begging twaddle.
September 27, 2018
Haddish is now in high demand, but her glorious-and deserved-ascent doesn't mean every project is worthy of her.
September 27, 2018
The movie gives some depth to its misfits, and ultimately sends the valuable message that nobody should be ashamed of who they are.
September 27, 2018
The actors aren't the problem with "Night School"; the material is.
September 27, 2018
The Haddish-Hart chemistry isn't totally combustible, but this good-natured back-to-school comedy has its moments.
September 27, 2018
All the ingredients for a perfectly reasonable comedy would appear to be in place, but nothing catches fire, basically because Hart really has no one to play off.
September 26, 2018
Night School squanders Hart and Haddish's rapport by having the latter play it straight, the gross and raunchy stuff reined in by the rating and feel-good life lessons.
