New In Theaters Review: Kevin Hart: Laugh At My Pain

Kevin Hart’s Laugh at My Pain comedy tour, which grossed more than $15 million in ticket sells over a 90-city performance, came to theaters this past weekend. The filmed version of what is being called the most successful comedy concert in history.

I have to admit, that I have been watching how Kevin Hart has been growing in popularity in the past 2-3 years. His other filmed comedy shows, I’m a Grown Little Man and Seriously Funny are two of the funniest comedy performances I’ve seen and a long time. Either one of those two could have gone to the theaters and made money. Instead Kevin came back with even more fresh and hilarious comedy, as he opened up even more looks into his personal life. In this movie he talks about everything from his father being on drugs, to his mother’s funeral, to his recent divorce. Nothing is held back, and Kevin makes sure that while he’s telling you these past times in his life, you’re going to laugh your behind off while he’s doing it. It’s been such a long time since a comedian has been able to pull off getting a comedy show filmed for the theaters, and no one deserves it more than Kevin Hart. He has remained keeping his routines new and more hysterical than the last, in each one of his performances, while also giving out funny comedic gems via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube appearances.

One of the biggest things you can say about Kevin Hart is that he’s loyal to his fans. This movie showed that. For the hour or so time that Kevin is performing his routine, I was laughing till my gut hurt. In the beginning of the movie he takes the audience to where he grew up in Upper Darby Pennsylvania. Then after the performance there is a short bank robbery themed skit, featuring himself and his Plastic Cup Boys comedic crew of friends. It felt good to go back to the theater and watch a comedy routine. I gave this movie 3 ½ laughs, out of 4. I laughed so much that the time flew by, and at the end I wanted more. The movie runs 1 hour and 29mins. It’s rated R for sexual content and pervasive language. It was directed by Leslie Small. The film was distributed by Codeblack Entertainment.
