In 2001, high school student Teddy Walker drops out of school when he finds himself unable to concentrate during a crucial test. Years later, in 2018, he works as a barbecue grill salesman while dating a wealthy woman named Lisa, having developed a careful financial strategy that allows him to maintain the illusion that he is better off than he actually is. However, his life falls apart just as he learns that he is going to inherit control of the store when the current manager retires. As he proposes to Lisa in the shop, Teddy accidentally triggers an explosion when a champagne cork pops open a gas tank, with the manager taking the insurance from the explosion and running away..
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.
