Storyline

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.

Trivia

Despite the fact that the plot of this movie depends on the conceit that Teddy (Kevin Hart) must attend night classes before he can take his GED exam, Georgia (like many, though not all, U.S. states) does not require students to take any classes before being eligible to take the high school equivalency exam.

Goofs

There is an entire scene at the start of the film at the dinner table when Teddy's sister and father tell him that standardized tests give you 400 points for writing your legal name on the test, yet when he takes the GED, you see him type his nickname in the cover page. See more »

Quotes

Mila: Aren't you a little old to be a pop-star?

What did you expect?
14 October 2018 | by knicole123See all my reviews

I rather enjoyed myself with this film. I know the formula and the headliners style of comedy so I knew pretty much what I was getting into.

I laughed and found some rather sweet moments in the film. Say what you want about Kevin and Tiffany but they both STARRED in a PG-13 film that is fun, light and has some pretty important messages... it's never to late to accomplish anything and sometimes it really only takes that one person to believe in you.
