Blu-Ray Spotlight: Kevin Hart Gets A Much Needed Education In ‘Night School’

Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are the stars behind the comedy Night School, but it’s a talented ensemble cast that basically steals the show. Fans of the stars will probably satisfied by their banter, but there are a ton of jokes to go around in the comedy.

Teddy Walker (Hart) is a BBQ salesman who accidentally destroys his workplace during a romantic evening with his longtime girlfriend lisa (Megalyn Echikunwoke). After his huge mistake, Teddy turns to night school to get his GED and land another job. Teddy’s teacher, a tough nosed woman named Carrie (Haddish), is not charmed by his supposed charm, and this time out Teddy will actually have to be serious about school

Teddy’s classmates include a convict (Fat Joe) who attends class via Skype, a neglected housewife (24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub), a conspiracy theorist (Romany Malco), a clueless but loving dad (Rob Riggle), a waiter (Al Madrigal) who lost his job thanks to Teddy, and a rebellious youth (Anne Winters). Saturday Night Live vet Taran Killam rounds out the cast as Stewart, the high school principal who, along with having a strange fixation for the Morgan Freeman flick Lean on Me, has a bone to pick with Teddy.

Special features on the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD versions includes feature commentary, an extended cut of the flick (it runs four minutes longer at 115 minutes), gag reel, alternate opening, several featurettes and audio commentary from director Malcolm D. Lee (the DVD comes with the extended cut, delete scenes, and alternate opening). Fans of Night School should definitely check out the 13 minutes worth of deleted scenes, as they give more screen time to Teddy’s classmates and his girlfriend. These sequences are not features, by the way, are not in the extended version (which probably means the original version of the feature ran close to 130 minutes).

Night School is now available on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
