Universal Picture’s Night School, starring the comedic dream team of Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish, is a movie for everyone who’s ever failed at anything—in other words, it’s for all of us. (Unless you’re one of those people who’s never had a panic blackout when staring at a math assignment, in which case you need to leave immediately so that rest of us can talk about you behind your back.)
The comedy centers around high school dropout Teddy Walker (Kevin Hart), a guy who’s used to quitting when the going gets tough, and his night school teacher Miss Carrie (Tiffany Haddish), who refuses to let him take the easy way out when it comes to getting his G.E.D. When they meet, it’s like an immovable, face-serving object slamming into an unstoppable, 5-foot-tall force, and the result is the funniest movie you’ll see this year. Their banter sessions are so hilarious that even if the movie was literally just 2 minutes of them talking, it would be worth the price of admission–but as it happens, all 111 minutes of the film are ridiculously good. Check out the trailer below:
He meets with the ridiculous principal (whose misguided attempts at swagger are LOL-worthy) and signs up for night school, thinking that getting his G.E.D will be a breeze. But things don’t quite turn out that way for Teddy and the other misfits in his class (one of whom is a convict who Skypes in from prison and shanks people in between learning about the pythagorean theorem), because in order to graduate, they’ve got to pass an absurdly hard test given by an intimidatingly tough teacher, Miss Carrie.
The movie hits theaters September 28, and you better believe that we’ll be there, posting up to watch with 8 buckets of popcorn. We’re also going to spend the next 5 months talking only in sound effects, so prepare yourself for that.
