Still in the theaters, Night School is still serving up laughs and gets passing grades. Star Kevin and producer Will Packer, who partnered for the hit Ride Along and Think Like a Man series, bring their signature style to Night School. The comedy from director Malcolm D. Lee (Girls Trip, The Best Man franchise) that co-stars Lee and Packer’s Girls Trip’ breakout star Tiffany Haddish follows a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in the longshot chance they’ll pass the GED exam.
In Night School, we meet Teddy Walker (Hart), a successful salesman who—after losing his job when he accidentally destroys hi workplace—is forced to attend night school at his former almost-alma mater, Piedmont High School, to get his GED. If he passes, Teddy will once again be gainfully employed and continue to impress—although quite deceptively—his successful girlfriend, Lisa (Megalyn Echikunwoke of TV’s “House of Lies.”
At school he falls in with a group of misfits also trying to get their GED, meets his match in his no nonsense teacher, Carrie (Haddish)—the mentor who sees right through Teddy’s manipulative ways—and once again faces his former high-school nemesis, now turned principal, Stewart (Taran Killam of Saturday Night Live, once mocked by Teddy in high school and who now finds himself in a position of delicious payback.
Sound the alarm for Night School!
