In 2001, high-school student Teddy Walker drops out of school when he's unable to concentrate during a crucial test. In 2018 he works as a barbecue-grill salesman and dating a wealthy woman named Lisa, and has developed a careful financial strategy that allows him to maintain the illusion that he is better off than he actually is. But his life falls apart just as he learns that he will inherit control of the store when the current manager retires: As he proposes to Lisa in the shop, he accidentally triggers an explosion when a champagne cork pops open a gas tank; the manager runs away with the insurance from the explosion. Teddy's friend is willing to give him a job--if he can earn his GED.
The geometry problem Teddy solves on the board is actually a very basic 3-4-5 right triangle, which can be used to demonstrate the Pythagorean theorem. See more »
Carrie farts on Teddy in the hexagon. Teddy remarks about the smell. Carrie replies it is a gas: methane. Methane is a component of farts, but is in fact odorless. The gas that makes farts smell is hydrogen sulfide. She teaches chemistry, as seen on the whiteboard, so she should know this. See more »

This is a cute comedy. It definitely has its flaws - predictability, awkward dialogue and relationships that never get explored although they're hinted at - but the message is good and characters make you laugh. Tiffany Haddish is a great addition to the movie and a joy to watch.
