REVIEW: Me Time (2022) - Starring Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg

Review by Jon Donnis
A 95-minute buddy comedy you say? With Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg? I'm in!

Kevin Hart stars as Sonny Fisher, he is a stay-at-home dad, his wife Maya (Regina Hall) works as a talented architect, Sonny is pretty much the perfect dad, but one day he realises he needs some me time, especially as a millionaire playboy seems to be sniffing around his wife.

After playing golf with some old Asian women who hustle him, and then making himself sick, eating too much BBQ, he tries the local strip joint where he sees the babysitter. This "Me Time" is not going well.

All the while his best friend Huck Dembo (Mark Wahlberg ) who he hasn't seen in years keeps trying to get Sonny to come out with him, eventually Sonny realises he needs more and agrees to go celebrate Huck's 44th birthday.

And of course, this is where the craziness begins. Whether it is fighting a mountain lion, an out-of-control party or pooping in his rival's bed. This is a good old fashioned buddy comedy that works.

The Good
Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg have great chemistry, and this is a really fun film, some of the jokes are a bit childish, but that is what I want in a good buddy comedy. At 95 minutes this is super easy to watch and enjoy. If you are a fan of either Kevin Hart or Mark Wahlberg, then you will enjoy this film.

The Bad
Some of the comedy might not be for everyone.

I am a movie fan, I enjoy watching films, and this film although not for everyone, is exactly what you would expect out of a Kevin Hart film.

I score Me Time a solid 8/10
