Kevin Hart: What Now?

Stand-up comedy suffers in a large performance space—the comic loses intimacy with the audience, and the laughs take longer to work their way through the crowd—yet this Kevin Hart concert movie is predicated on the show's size: shot in August 2015, it documents his sold-out, record-breaking performance before more than 50,000 people at Lincoln Financial Field in his native Philadelphia. Hart delivers a solid set despite the massive crowd, and appropriately, the funniest material deals with his newfound fame (a fan takes his picture while he's trying to relieve himself in a stall of an airport men's room) and wealth (his sons are private-school softies who can't cope when the WiFi goes out). To beef up the running time, Hart and directors Leslie Small and Tim Story have bracketed the concert footage with a James Bond spoof, which is as tired as it sounds but gives Hart a chance to look great in a tux and goof around with Halle Berry and Don Cheadle.
