In 'Me Time,' the new Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg Netflix comedy, there is a scene in which Hart's character Sonny has a day to himself for the first time in a long time.
He has spent years as a stay-at-home dad to his two children (the very cute Che Tafari and Amentii Sledge
He takes his job extremely seriously, preparing Instagram-worthy lunches and managing the household while his wife Maya (Regina Hall) is at work.
We're informed she's a successful architect, but we'll get to that later.
Sonny has a simple plan for his day off: he wants to go golfing. He's looking for an underground BBQ spot.
He also wishes to perform a couple more things in private. But nothing goes exactly as planned. Unfortunately, his lacklustre experience mirrors that of the film itself.
'Me Time' wastes a good premise, a talented cast, and an apparently limitless budget.
In this cinematic comedy drought, it didn't have to be anything spectacular.
'Me Time,' written and directed by John Hamburg, who previously handled "I Love You, Man" and "Along Came Polly," is a fantastic premise that pairs a typical straight man with a wild and eccentric childhood pal.
