Preview, Kevin Hart taps into that Tiffany Haddish magic for “Night School”

He’s a drop out who mastered the art of closing the sale, but who needs to start over in order to get a gig on Wall Street, where salesmen and women are masters of the universe.

She’s a teacher collecting a little extra pay — “None of y’all’s business” why — by teaching night school. That’s where the Little Man can get his GED on.

White folks “Talking black.” A punchline in this funny trailer. Black folks running through a repertoire of comic gestures common to African American stand-ups and TV and film funnywomen and men.

“Night School” also features Rob Riggle, and was directed by Malcolm D. Lee from a Kevin Hart & Team script. So a little “Girls’ Trip,” a little “Get Hard,” and a little late for what looks like it could have been a summer comedy. Sept.
