At the beginning of this week, I was expecting to regale you all about my experience attending an advanced screening and Q&A for Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. starring Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown. Alas, I woke up on Wednesday morning with a back pain flare-up and used my already approved half day off from work to rest, choosing to stay home and miss the screening.

In an unexpected turn of events, I received an advance screener of Me Time starring Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Hart to (hopefully) make me feel less sad about missing the other screening. It didn't completely make up for the fact that I was no longer in the same room as Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown, but it did relieve some of the sadness.

Kevin Hart plays devoted stay-at-home dad Sonny Fisher. He's spent most of his time focused on volunteering at his kids' school and let his identity outside of being "dad" fall to the wayside. He unexpectedly finds himself with some much need "me time" when his wife Maya (played, coincidentally, by Regina Hall) forces him to stay at home while she takes a trip with the kids to visit her parents.

While trying to prove he isn't a boring homebody, Sonny reconnects with his estranged best friend Huck Dembo (played by Mark Wahlberg) who is well into his 40s and still hasn't really grown up or figured out what to do with his life. Chaos ensues and Sonny gets sucked into a wild weekend that could potentially change the course of his life as he knows it.

This movie was bonkers. You think you're heading into a fun little buddy movie with some shenanigans and end up getting...well, this movie. The situations that Sonny and Huck find themselves in are insane. It's hard to take any of it seriously. Even the "high stakes" don't feel very urgent. As you expect (or, at least, as I expected), things come to a head with Sonny and Huck and then one of them has a realization that changes everything. It should be a really emotional moment of clarity and it just...didn't do anything for me.

I enjoyed watching it as I was watching it, but it's not a movie that I would revisit regularly (or really at all unless someone else wanted to watch it). As a single parent who does basically everything with her kid, this movie at least reminded me that I should take some time for myself away from my child so there's that at least. I don't have a lot of praise to give this movie, but I also don't have any hate for it. It was a solid "meh" for me.

Me Time stars Kevin Hart, Mark Wahlberg, Regina Hall, and Jimmy O. Yang and is available now streaming on Netflix.
