There was no press screening for Kevin Hart's new comedy concert documentary "Let Me Explain" (R for pervasive language including sexual references). As we will do from time to time, we're going to take a leap of faith and recommend it sight unseen. Hart is the most successful touring comic today, one of the top talents in all comedy, not just black comedy. Check the numbers. Last year's tour hit 10 countries and 80 cities, concluding with a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. Total take: $32 million. Hart knows what his fans want: stories about his rough childhood, his crazy family and his endless skirmishes with the women in his life, told with virtuoso vulgarity. The film offers front-row and behind-the-scenes views from the 2012 tour.
