Kevin Hart is the man! He definitely proved that earlier this week when he was honored with his own star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. Although that is an amazing accomplishment an even bigger and world record feat was when his show sold out the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia with 53K people in attendance! The movie records his live performance and what (fictionally) almost kept the show from happening.
The film begins with Kevin and Halle Berry attending an illegal poker game mere hours before his show in Philadelphia. Although they are there to make money, Kevin, unsurprisingly infuriates the other players with his antics resulting in a “near death-meets James Bond--meets Goldfinger” that will have you floored. Kevin’s actual show is what really takes the cake. Yes, he goes there and says exactly what he thought about his then fiancee, his children, and even his father. Life in the suburbs definitely does not seem to suit when he is dealing with rude raccoons, Starbucks addicts, Black girls in disbelief, and oh yes--sex toys!
Be prepared to life, cry, and then bring your own sutures to stitch your sides back together after dealing with his shenanigans. You will love to hate Kevin Hart for this one, but you will definitely crave to see more of him. Instead of asking him “What Now?” perhaps it should be “What’s Next?” Encore, Kevin, encore!
