When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there's enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

In 2001, high-school student Teddy Walker drops out of school when he's unable to concentrate during a crucial test. In 2018 he works as a barbecue-grill salesman and dating a wealthy woman named Lisa, and has developed a careful financial strategy that allows him to maintain the illusion that he is better off than he actually is. But his life falls apart just as he learns that he will inherit control of the store when the current manager retires: As he proposes to Lisa in the shop, he accidentally triggers an explosion when a champagne cork pops open a gas tank; the manager runs away with the insurance from the explosion. Teddy's friend is willing to give him a job--if he can earn his GED.
Why is everyone reviewing this like it's The Godfather? It's Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and about a man who goes back to High School to get his GED. If you were expecting "depth" then the problem starts there.
Night School got plenty of laughs in my theater, especially from the guy trying to prevent the robot uprising. "Who you looking for fam?"
Tiffany Haddish's character was flat, but her and Hart did well for the thin material they were working with.
I went for a few laughs, I got a few laughs, it's not that deep.
