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.
The geometry problem Teddy solves on the board is actually a very basic 3-4-5 right triangle, which can be used to demonstrate the Pythagorean theorem. See more »
When Teddy and his classmates are sneaking in the Principal's office, Teddy says to Theresa she needs to stall the principal, but she thought she needed to flirt with him. She then starts talking about hearing a guy saying "I'm gonna crack that up like a walnut.", but her mouth actually says "...crack that butt like a walnut.", which was used in the trailer. See more »

It may seem odd, but I was actually looking forward to this movie. They had been promoting it for months upon months, and I thought, "This might actually be pretty funny." Well, I only found it to be *moderately* funny. Kevin Hart does what he normally does, Tiffany Haddish does what she normally does, and character actors like Rob Riggle and Mary Lynn Rajskub show up and do some schtick that's amusing, at most. The best scenes were in the trailer, they try to squeeze just the tiniest bit of drama from learning disabilities, and the film editing is surprisingly poor. I even noticed a scene where you could tell it was dubbed over. What more can I say? I just expected more from this film.
