Night School, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish ‘s comedy about adult troublemakers forced to get ready for the GED exam during night classes is not all that I’d hoped.
My very favourite moment in the whole nearly two hour duration of the movie is the beginning. Reason being, that’s when it had the most promise. Unfortunately though, from that point on my interest in the characters just decreased more and more as the film continued.
I definitely think that the movie should have been at least 20 minutes shorter. I like what it had to say about second chances and how instrumental the right teacher can be in getting the best out of seemingly difficult students. Nevertheless, I wanted the film to have my whole attention, without my mind wandering as it played. It’s therefore not as funny or engaging as the trailer had me hoping.
Give it a chance if you’re a big enough fan of Haddish, Hart and Taran Killam Just know that you probably won’t consider it one of their best movies.
Killing Gunther is a new action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger that I really want to see. Written, directed by and co-starring Taran Killam, Arnie plays the world’s greatest assassin who’s working to make sure that all the eccentric assassins fed up with him and focused on trying to kill him do not succeed…
I don’t remember the last time I saw Arnie looking this stylish and happy in a movie. I definitely like it.
A quick question… at some point during and after watching this trailer, did you also get a sudden urge to grab your neck? I’m grabbing mine right now and every few minutes as I type this post. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, go ahead and rewind the video back to 1:44.
Fingers crossed that Killing Gunther turns out well because I’m always in the mood for a promising comedy that no one expected.
Allison Tolman, Bobby Moynihan and Aaron Yoo also star.
