NIGHT SCHOOL (M)
LESSONS GO UNLEARNED AS CLASS NEVER SHOWS UP, US, 111 MIN In this so-so-with-a-dash-of-oh-no comedy, Kevin Hart plays Teddy, a fast-talking salesman who wants to become a financial analyst. However, this vocational transition won’t be getting started unless Teddy finishes off a high-school diploma he never quite completed. So our hero reluctantly trudges off to his old alma mater to rectify the oversight. Help will come from his teacher ( Girls
Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish, largely wasted here). Hindrance will be supplied by a principal who has hated him since childhood. A few mild laughs on offer, and a heck of a lot of groaners, as can occur with the kind of movie that describes a condition like dyslexia as “learning herpes”.
