Night School is the kind of comedy that just keeps getting in its own way.

Somewhere in here lies a sweet movie about overcoming learning disabilities, but the sixty screenwriters have buried it under endless cynical repartee.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 28, 2020
In front of the camera the performances seem laboured and fully phoned in. Behind the camera there seems to be minimal direction or structure. And in front of the screen? You'll have given up too.

An enjoyable comedy that's held back by too many minutes and poor pacing in the middle.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Night School has a strong comedic cast lead by Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish, but even the two of them combined can't save the film from its weak script.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
July 18, 2019
An ideal movie starring Hart and Haddish would make them comedic equals along the lines of Cheech & Chong or Laurel & Hardy. Instead, they're more like Martin & Lewis, Abbott & Costello and Groucho/Chico/Harpo & Zeppo.

The supporting cast had funnier moments than the leads.

This silly film doesn't gloss over the embarrassment that comes with learning challenges, and the commitment required to overcome this adversity.

May 1, 2019
Could've been a more consistently enjoyable comedy as opposed to the hit and often miss product it ultimately plays out as.
April 11, 2019
The premise, though promising, isn't very original, and director Malcolm D. Lee's execution isn't very inventive.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 20, 2019
Try as he might, director Malcolm D. Lee can't recapture the near-transcendent raunchiness of his hard R-rated Girls Trip within the softer, cuddlier PG-13 formula.

I enjoy Kevin Hart on occasion and it seemed like a cute premise. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the film.

February 20, 2019
Little more than a collection of uninspired plot points and go-nowhere improvs that have been edited together almost at random, this is a film that somehow manages to be even more listless, lifeless and mirthless than the trailers hyping it suggest.

"Night School" could have been better. A LOT better. Instead, we get a meandering story where the plot is sparse and the jokes are even sparser.

January 27, 2019
Generic, messy, flat, over-extended and all-too-earnest, running for nearly two hours with sentiment and silliness where its scant narrative should be
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 25, 2019
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.
January 1, 2019
Unlike Hart's other high-concept comedies, there is simply not enough laughs or character development to give Night School a passing grade.

December 21, 2018
The film's messages of never giving up and working hard to triumph over adversity are good life lessons but are buried under a bland, unfunny, generic shell.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
November 4, 2018
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.
