Reviews: Night School (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Chris Barsanti @ PopMatters
    • Excerpt: Yes, Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart are too good for this by-the-numbers mess, but that’s modern comedy: Throw some stars out there and see what they can do.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: There’s just enough laughs from the supporting characters to not make the film terrible, but it’s still a mediocre comedy that wastes Hart and Haddish.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Night School may carry over the director, breakout star, and crew from Girls Trip, but it left everything behind – especially the laughs.
  • [New] | Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Hart and Haddish are enjoyable balls of energy and could find laughs in reading from the phone book, but with “Night School,” it’s a shame the script they’re working with in tandem is regrettably only average at best.
  • Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: Perhaps there’s something modestly subversive in creating a film about a man who couldn’t finish high school because of his learning disabilities who finds himself trapped in a world where a lack of education leaves him with few options. “Night School” is a lot of things, but accidentally insightful might be its biggest benefit.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Hart and Haddish are always winning, but the material lets them down.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: The director of Girls Trip reteams with scene-stealing supernova Tiffany Haddish in Night School. (Kevin Hart is also there.)
