Me Time is another Kevin Hart and Netflix painful mess

Follows a Dad who finds time for himself for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away. He reconnects with a friend for a wild weekend.

Me Time is yet another Kevin Hart and Netflix movie collaboration, two months ago we got The Man From Toronto but I guess that wasn’t enough. Finding anything to say here is a struggle because this is the exact same thing as a lot of other Kevin Hart movies, instead of The Rock it’s Mark Wahlberg who gives such a dull performance that it’s actually quite hilarious at times. The positives mostly come from a few comedic bits and at times the chemistry of Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg somehow breaking through the script to deliver some great moments. There’s also the chemistry between Kevin Hart and Regina Hall plus this family dynamic that is genuinely sweet. But everything else is a complete and total mess particularly the writing that has no clear goal of what it wants to do, the family dynamic I mentioned earlier while sweet does not get explored as much as it should have. It’s sort of tacked on with the rest of the movie that’s filled to the brim of unfunny scenes, the climax just sort of happens it’s like they realized they had to finish the movie up and quickly tried to think of a way to end it not caring if it ends up being a mess. Finally there’s the tone of the movie that clearly wants to be comedic but tacks on the serious family dynamic that is barely explored and is only decent enough thanks to Regina Hall being such a great actress. Overall Me Time is definitely better than The Man From Toronto but that is most certainly not a compliment. This is exactly what you would expect a movie starring Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg to be like.

Me Time is available on Netflix.
