    Intermittently funny. But the movie's first 20 minutes is devoted to tediously showing how his career has taken off around the world. That might be fine if this were a documentary, or if it were done more artfully, and with humor — since we go into the movie expecting a 75-minute laugh-fest. show more

    If you were to judge Let Me Explain purely on its performance portion, filmed at Madison Square Garden during Hart's 2012 tour, the film would merit a full extra star. But at 75 minutes, it feels too skimpy to rave over. show more

    Some of Hart’s set — including jokes about his security team and an inspired recounting of a disastrous trip to a dude ranch — is hilarious. And his profane outrage is often funny enough to sell the weaker writing. show more

    Diverting but not enough to expand Kevin Hart's fan base much. show more

    It’s a brief movie, and perhaps all that preamble is meant to justify the ticket price. The best advice is to walk in about 25 minutes after the lights go down. You’ll still get all the laughs, and you won’t have to hear about Hart’s YouTube hits. show more

    Peter Keough Boston Globe

    Few comedians talk so much to get a laugh, and sometimes the strain shows... And the directors don’t do him any favors by the annoyingly frequent close-ups of audience members in convulsions of laughter. show more

    Kevin C. Johnson St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    The film is flat and lazy, and the audio mix is so low it sounds as if the audience is barely laughing. His cable comedy specials have better production values. show more

    In Let Me Explain, you’re never NOT aware that you’re watching a gifted, rubber-faced/rubber voiced performer (his “Laugh at My Pain” concert film was a surprising hit in 2011) work too hard to make inferior material go over. show more

    Wait for this to show up where it belongs — on cable. show more

    The Kevin Hart brand is clearly doing well, but Let Me Explain doesn’t seem interested in providing anything more than a surface-level presentation of the product. show more

    Review by a White girl: Kevin Hart\'s Let Me Explain was funny as Hell! I don\'t agree that the only funny part was the stand up. The introductory scenes were an integral part of the story and the move was entertaining from start to finish!

    The epitome of the confusion regarding the current treatment of Paula Deen(though well deserved). 75 minutes of racist epithets and misogynistic ramblings from a repeatedly self avowed runt. SOOOOOOO not funny
