At the Movies – “Small Foot” and “Night School”


Plenty of choices at the movies this weekend. 

Looking for scares? There’s “Hell Fest.” For laughs? There’s “Night School.” There’s even something for the kiddies, “Small Foot! “

Here the guys behind the Broadway musical “Something Rotten” want you to wonder if the reason Bigfoot is so elusive is because he’s just as scared of us as we are of him. 

There’s a Yeti community hiding high atop a mountain, with characters voiced by celebs like Channing Tatum, Danny DeVito, and Lebron James. They break into song often, which you think would draw attention to their whereabouts. 

James Corden plays a nature TV host in need of a big story and this is it! He gets to do his “Carpool Karaoke” thing, performing Queen’s classic “Under Pressure.” 

The box office winner is either here or “Night School,” which pairs Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish on the big screen for the first time. Hart is student and Haddish teacher. That’s really all you need to know. 

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the same guy who gave Haddish her breakout role in last year’s “Girl Trip,” how can it not be a trip? Hart needs his G.E.D. and his teacher is heart-less. 

Hey, she’s got quite a class on her hands: Rob Riggle, SNL‘s Taran Killam, and Parks & Rec’s Ben Schwartz. 

A class full of Zac’s, and one Screech. Not a Lisa Turtle to be found. 

“Small Foot” is rated PG and “Night School” is PG-13.
