Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish co-star in this comedy, and with the way audiences treat comics as if they have expiration dates, there’s no telling how well this will do, even if it’s great. And the trailers aren’t selling that, thus the “stunt” in this one.
Hart’s had a great, long run, a Will Ferrell not Adam Sandler (where you see the comic stop caring, right there on screen) career arc. He leaves it all up there, and much respect for that. No phoning it. Yet.
Haddish? She has three films out this fall. If she’s burning through her 15 minutes, it’s going to happen with one or more of these three. “Girls Trip Sequel” in the works, a cable series she’s mad about being underpaid for, over-exposed for the sort of comic she is.
It has five credited screenwriters and a 1:51 running time, long for a comedy.
But I’m looking for laughs from these two and hoping for the best from “Night School.”
