If you were expecting another Grown Little Man, this isn't it.
For the first 9 minutes of the program, I didn't even detect any attempts at humor. An "after party" is being hosted by Kevin Hart, where his friends, associates and guests take turns interacting with Kevin with sort of a rowdy, party feel. It would be like if you walked around a wedding reception with a camcorder and taped various drunks making lame comments to one another for 9 minutes.
Then Kevin announces to one of his entourage that he needs him to "call the Garden to tell them he is on his way down there to get some shizz off of his chest."
The friend responds "Kevin all this food and you want Olive Garden man, fo real?"
Annoyed by his friend's lack of understanding, Kevin snaps back "No, Madison Square Garden..."
When his lackey argues about the need to call Madison Square Garden, Kevin gets fired up and tells him "I'll punch you... I will double punch your face. I'll break both of yo eyes."
Now, it was clear to me that because of Kevin's animated facial expressions and his 'hip hop inspired' manner of speech, this was intended to be funny If this sounds like a real knee slapper to you, then you will be in for a real treat with the rest of your viewing experience. If, like me, this doesn't even make you consider cracking a smile, let alone muster up a weak, half-hearted chuckle... then I think you will find the rest of Kevin's attempts at humor to be much of the same.Read more ›
Ultimately, it was a let-down, and confusing as well.
The first part of the movie was funny, and when Kevin pledged to "Explain" a lot of things, I was all ears.
But then the film took a bizarre and unexpected turn into megalomania which was boring and baffling (I ended up skipping it). Who was Kevin trying to impress? Obviously, not the fans watching the movie who don't care if he killed Denmark or not. We're just there for the jokes.
Finally, the Madison Square Garden performance began, but something was off. Although the stage caught fire, Kevin never did. He failed to hit his stride, but I kept waiting.
There is no doubt about it that Kevin is a genius. His physical actions and voices are usually so spot on, he's like a brilliant, one-man Shakespeare play. But very little of this sparkling genius was evident in this lackluster and "phoning-it-in" performance.
I did not even seen him go to his physical edge with his physical actions and facial expressions like he usually does; it just seemed to me he wasn't trying.
His material was half-*ssed and poorly edited. It just seemed to be a random hodge-podge of leftover standup he decided to make into a new show. He made few, if any, unique observations about life. He was mildly funny, but nowhere was his genius evident.
In addition, I did not feel he "Explained" anything he said he would at the beginning of the show. I thought there was going to be a comedic payoff for the beginning of the jokes planted at the beginning of the show. There never was. The audience was left holding the bag.Read more ›
