Night School Plot

Teddy Walker – portrayed by Kevin Hart – is a successful salesman whose life takes an unexpected turn when he accidentally blows up his place of employment.

Forced to attend night school to get his GED, Teddy soon finds himself dealing with a group of misfit students, his former high school nemesis and a feisty teacher who doesn’t think he’s too bright.

Critics’ reviews

Opinion is divided on this one. While Peter Travers from Rolling Stone said Night School is “a movie that never should have happened,” Tara McNamara from Common Sense Media said:

Haddish and Hart are a comedic dream team: Her blunt, oh-no-you-didn’t style is the perfect foil for Hart’s brand of “let me explain” humor.

Furthermore, Owen Gleiberman from Variety said the movie quickly turned into a “mid-life ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’ for the age of the gig economy.”
