Kevin Hart returns to high school in new comedy

Steven Guzman

After failing to finish high school, newly unemployed Teddy Walker, Kevin Hart, must attend night school in order to receive his General Education Diploma in the new comedy “Night School.”

Following an explosion that destroys his grill shop, Walker is left struggling to find another occupation. Though multiple people, including “Parks and Recreation” star Ben Schwartz and “Saturday Night Live’s” Taran Killan, try to help him, his lack of a high school diploma significantly limits his job options.  

His first day of continuation school, Walker realizes he and his instructor, “Girl’s Trip” and “Keanu” star Tiffany Haddish, won’t get along well and eventually lands a job at a Christian-themed chicken restaurant.

Among them is a group of other dropouts such as Mila, Anne Winters, who is being forced by her family to complete high school, Theresa, Mary Lynn Rajskub, who got pregnant during her teenage years and comedian Rob Riggle. Walker now has to put up with the troubling group of adults in order to get his life back together.

Rated PG-13, “Night School” premieres on September 28.
