Night School (2018)

Night School is an easy-going, lighthearted comedy that’s meant to impress all. Hart is in the role of a man who makes a return to school to get his GED for better job prospects.

In the movie, Hart is surrounded by a bunch of colourful characters who add a good layer of comedic fun to the narrative. Another plus point, the film is rated PG-13 so it’s not as raunchy and adult-oriented as many of Hart’s films.

Central Intelligence (2016)

Can’t get enough of Rock-Hart banters? Central Intelligence is a film you can’t miss. Hart in the role of an accountant is dragged by his friend from high school (played by Rock) to participate in an important covert operation. Well, you might have already guessed – nothing goes as planned.

It’s important to highlight that Central Intelligence is an average script that gets the majority of its soul from the Rock-Hart duo.  The action-comedy features many scenes that you are going to want to rewatch.

About Last Night (2014)

About Last Night revolves around a man and a woman who pretend to be a couple for a night, and then decide to continue the pretence to see how it works out in real life. The movie is a remake of the 1986 movie of the same name which in turn is based on a play titled ‘Sexual Perversity in Chicago.’

Witty and funny, the film explores the themes of love and friendship in a rather amusing way. About Last Night’s isn’t very different from romantic comedies, but it does take a different approach which many consider to be praiseworthy.

Ride Along (2014)

Ride Along is a decently funny film that features Hart in the role of a security guard who has to go to extreme lengths in order to marry his girlfriend. His hurdle: His girl’s police officer brother who doesn’t seem to think he is good enough for her.

No doubt, the film lacks a bit of plot-strength, but Hart’s onscreen virtues more than make up for it.

Get Hard (2015)

A wealthy hedge fund manager (Will Ferrell) is wrongfully convicted of fraud and is sentenced to 10 years in prison. Desperate, he reaches out to a car wash attendant (Hart) to prep him for life in prison.

Though chucklesome, Get Hard is oftentimes obnoxious – as a result, it may not be the film of choice for those into mindful comedy. That said, the chemistry between Ferell and Hart is quite entertaining.


Best Kevin Hart Movies

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

A group of teenagers as their magical avatars get trapped in the jungle world of Jumanji through an old game. Now, they must overcome dangerous obstacles and challenges in order to make it back home.

Best Kevin Hart Movies

Fatherhood (2021)

Based on Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love by Matthew Logelin, Fatherhood is a beautiful tale of a single father trying to raise his little daughter.

The film features Hart as Matthew Logelin which is an against-type role for the actor. Despite all odds, he pulls off the character wonderfully earning praise from both viewers and critics. What’s more, the emotional depth of the narrative wrapped in decent comedy captivates till the credits roll.

35 and Ticking (2011)

35 and Ticking centres around four friends, all over 35, who find themselves struggling to build and maintain the life they always dreamed of.

Their pre-mid-life crisis results in a number of hysterical moments, and they have different methods of dealing with those. 35 and Ticking isn’t a particularly special piece of art, but it is entertaining and many can relate to situations in some capacity.
