Central Intelligence

2016 action comedy

Rating: 10/20

Plot: A guy who was popular in high school reunites with a guy who was bullied all the time, the latter who has become some super-spy. They have themselves an adventure!

Poor, predictable storytelling sinks this one. The Hart/Rock chemistry isn't terrible although Dwayne Johnson has a tendency to overwhelm things. And then Jason Bateman, playing a bully in yet another 2016 movie, comes along.

The movie starts out mean-spirited and hard to watch although I suspect it's the kind of things that would get laughs from a certain demographic. The movie is really exactly what you think it is before you pop it in, and I'm not sure why I watched it other than a hope that The Rock would have himself a "Daddy's got to go to work moment."
