Storyline

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.

A good cast and some amusing scenes somehow make this generally unfunny, fairly lengthy, instantly forgettable picture an entertaining time while it lasts.
26 October 2018 | by domtaylorSee all my reviews

I expected 'Night School' to be terrible, however it was actually a pleasant surprise. Sure, it wasn't brilliant; the already weak plot was entirely driven by the jokes, there was no real room for character development, and the film delivered no belly laughs, yet somehow it managed to provide some sort of entertainment. There were enough amusing moments to keep the comedy afloat, and while they never made me full on laugh, they managed to put a smile on my face every now and then. The cast all did good jobs with the material that they were given, and they kept things engaging even when the narrative was going nowhere. However the film did feel quite lengthy, and some already unfunny scenes dragged on for way too long. On top of that there was some noticeably bad ADR. On the whole though, I found 'Night School' to be an enjoyable watch when it was on, despite it being instantly forgettable. 6/10
