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.

Goofs

The entire plot depends on the conceit that Teddy 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. See more »

Quotes

Carrie: I don't even eat Cheetos! You know why? Because it sounds like cheaters!

Better than expected
14 December 2018 | by tonimysticSee all my reviews

Literally better than expected. I only expected kevin Hart to be high pitched and screaming and Hadish to be sarcastic; that's it. But this was an actually an entertaining movie with emotional bits with truly addressing a problem that most people make fun of. I liked it and recommend it.
