I rate this movie a B because the comedic chemistry between Kevin and Tiffany was great! I laughed through the whole movie. The plot was meaty between the different characters. Each student really had their own reason for going to night school and some type of personal struggle thereof. The scenes developed around those personal weaknesses, to expose the character’s drama, capture our empathy or sympathy, and then quickly conquer the struggles — without taking away from the main imperfect journey between Teddy and his fiancee Lisa.
The relationship between Teddy and Lisa will be viewed by many of you as “that’s me,” or “see, that’s why I can’t find a good man.” Teddy did what a lot of men do (and sometimes women) which is what I like to call “introducing me to your representative” during the first few dates. Teddy did not work a “corporate” job per se like Lisa, and their friends viewed that as Teddy and Lisa dating out of their league. Teddy gave the impression that he was doing great with a flashy car, nice clothes, and plush apartment. He was able to cover up his successful facade for a long time until his nemesis, Stewart, set him up and burst his bubble.
There are multiple lessons to learn from this movie that you may be able to relate to, such as being someone that you’re not, being overwhelmed by conspiracy theories and unfounded perceptions, letting your mate bully you and destroy your personal identity and greatness, or even thinking your good looks will carry you all your life.
I’ll stop here, because I don’t want to give away too much. No matter what you glean from this movie, you will enjoy the abundant laughter and the life lessons. Enjoy, and don’t forget to let me know what you think.
TTFN (Ta Ta For Now), DanaSimone!
About these Peetimes: It was hard getting Peetimes for this movie due to the ongoing comedic scenes. Don’t dilly dally on your pee runs. Most scenes were funny and added something to the plot. Just when I thought I had another good Peetime at about 1 or 2 minutes, plot happened and ruined another opportunity. If you’re a “reel” Kevin or Tiffany fan, you don’t want to miss any of their scenes together.
The 1st Peetime is a good one, if short. The 2nd is fine, but you’ll miss some humor. That’s just unavoidable in this film.
Alert: Excessive profanity around 35 minutes in, lasting about 5 minutes.
