‘me time’ review (netflix)

With his family away, a devoted stay-at-home dad enjoys his first me time in years by joining his hard-partying old friend on a wild birthday adventure.

Do we really need yet another Kevin Hart comedy this year? To be completely honest with you, it’s arguable that “Kevin Hart comedy” is actually its own genre of film. The difference between that and a normal comedy? A normal comedy is actually funny and has a strong script and entertaining characters that make you smile and put you in a good mood.

Hart’s films are almost always devoid of any of these qualities, making it virtually impossible to fall head over heels for one of his comedies. We were already tortured to one of his films this year in the form of The Man From Toronto which was a colossal dud with a horribly unfunny script.

Fast-forward to now, and we have Me Time. And… drumroll please… it’s also terrible. This is a one-hundred-and-one minute long movie that feels like two-hundred-and-one minutes. It’s an awfully boring, ridiculously unfunny, and shockingly messy film that never once attempts to be legitimately humorous, instead opting for the most dry humor possible.

The script here is, of course, the main problem. John Hamburg directed and wrote this film, and unfortunately, didn’t do a very good job at either. It truly never seemed as if he knew what he was doing which makes sense seeing as how he previously wrote and directed films such as Why Him? and Night School which were both awful, the latter of which also starred Hart [Got to disagree on the latter, I enjoyed it! – Editor Phil].

Hart is not the problem in any of his movies, really. It’s more so that he picks the most questionable movies to star in. We all know how genuinely hilarious he is, but he always tends to pick the worst projects to showcase that. One of the only exceptions recently has been the two newest Jumanji movies.

Unfortunately though, he also almost always portrays himself in every single film and in Me Time, it’s no different. At this point, we all kind of know what kind of performance he’ll hand in when we see his name attached to any given project. Same with Mark Wahlberg, really. Speaking of which, the chemistry between the two here is incredibly bland and not at all believable.

Me Time was such a chore to sit through. It’s not like we haven’t all seen the same movie from Hart over and over again, so you’d think that we should all be used to this quality level from him, but, it turns out that isn’t the case. Me Time is an extremely bad comedy that shocks you with just how bad it is at nearly every turn.
