The release of raucous comedy Girls Trip last year put two names firmly on the map as ones to watch in comedy: director Malcolm D. Lee and actress Tiffany Haddish who was quickly agreed to be the unselfconscious comedienne this era has been waiting for. It should be good news then, that the two have teamed up once again, this time for Kevin Hart vehicle Night School. Sadly, it most definitely is not.

A movie starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish shouldn't leave you with the lingering sensation that its concept would have worked a lot better on the small screen.

Let me just rain on your parade upfront, to get it out of the way: Night School is not the big Girls Trip follow-up film for Tiffany Haddish that you might have been hoping for.

You can't help but think that someone should put these two in a movie together. A real movie, which "Night School," like more than a few big studio features these days, isn't quite.

All the ingredients for a perfectly reasonable comedy would appear to be in place, but nothing catches fire, basically because Hart really has no one to play off.

Night School might just be enough for a lazy Friday night if you're happy to set the bar somewhere damn near subterranean.

Only a fool would say that Hart and Haddish aren't hilarious. But only a dumbass would argue that their new comedy isn't the worst kind of lazy, laughless, paycheck-begging twaddle.

A lot of the jokes miss - some in a very cringe-inducing way - but there are enough to make it easy enough to giggle along.

For all her improvisational skill and that of her top-billed costar, the much-vaunted Hart-and-Haddish pairing never pays dividends. It feels more like Half-and-Half.

Night School has a lot to learn about how to live up to its potential, but it squeaks out a passing grade in the end.
