In a moment that may seem like déjà vu to some given Kevin Hart’s trending film The Man from Toronto was only recently released, the Philadelphia native is back with another comedy for the summer. This time he’s teaming up with Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg. 

Now while they aren’t necessarily known for partnering up in films, the two do appear to be friends in Hollywood. In a pretty funny interview Hart did with Ellen on her daytime talk show, he jokes about why he and Mark Wahlberg can act together but not be workout buddies. Check it out.

As previously mentioned, Kevin Hart stars in the film. This time around, Hart is portraying a stay-at-home dad who desperately needs a night out, away from his adulting responsibilities. Hart is no stranger to the comedy genre having played Calvin in Central Intelligence, Ben in Ride Along, Darnell in Get Hard and Jimmy in The Wedding Ringer

Starring alongside Hart as the former best friend who helps Hart’s character "have fun" is Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg has previously been featured in Uncharted as Victor, in Instant Family as Pete, in Infinite as Evan and he received an Oscar nomination for his role as Dignam in The Departed

Joining these A-listers on film are Regina Hall (Girls Trip, Black Monday), Luis Gerardo Méndez (Narcos: Mexico, Charlie’s Angels), Jimmy O. Yang (Space Force, Silicon Valley), Carlo Rota (A Perfect Plan, Titans) and Tahj Mowry (Smart Guy, Baby Daddy).  

Me Time plot 

Netflix describes the plot of Me Time as the following: 

"With his family away, a devoted stay-at-home dad enjoys his first me time in years by joining his hard-partying old friend on a wild birthday adventure."

If we had to elaborate, we’d say the movie shows what happens when a family man tries to shake things up in his life by calling upon the one person he knows has no limits when it comes to having a good time. Unfortunately for the usually straight-laced dad, things get too wild and surpass what even he could have imagined.

The Los Angeles Times said, “Me Time is less of a movie than it is a bulletin board filled with half-thought-out premises for dirty jokes.

ABC News remarked, “Despite the star presence of Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg, this laugh-starved, buddy comedy is crushingly dim-witted and disposable.”
