Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Kevin Hart's (Along Came Polly) audience loves him, but if you're not in love yet, this probably won't start the infatuation for you."
‑ , Toronto Star
"He is, maybe, a little too frenetic, too frequently at full speed. But when he gets rolling, the laugh lines come quick, one after the other, and he kills."
‑ David Haglund, Slate
"The laughs are frequent, with Hart's energy and timing having grown and been honed to more than fill the vast, cavernous space of Madison Square Garden."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The less said about the specifics of the act the better -- wouldn't want to spoil the punchlines -- but Let Me Explain is a notch above Hart's last concert film, 2011's Laugh at My Pain."
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"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."
‑ Genevieve Koski, The Dissolve
"Once Hart finally gets onstage his act can barely live up to the hype."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"He tells elliptical stories that go on so long and take so many weird detours that they end up being funny even when they shouldn't be."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"I'd rather attend a Norman Wisdom tribute concert in downtown Tirana than see this film again."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Hart's impressive physicality and the background special effects, which become their own running joke, are a smokescreen disguising how poorly written his rambling gags actually are."
‑ Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
"Hart nothing but a lightweight."
‑ Charles Koplinski, Illinois Times
"Any comic who can play the Garden must be good, but you wouldn't know it from this jumble of random routines and on-the-bus footage."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"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."
‑ David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
"I could have done without [the] pointless framing device, but there is some funny and highly incorrect material here."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"I so wanted to be moved to genuine laughter, but it came in only fits and starts."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
"Kevin Hart works hard but is only funny with about 50% of his comedy routine."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
