2016 Pg-13 1:47 comedy action
Dwayne Johnson & Kevin Hart Jason Bateman IMDB
The comedy about the kid that was bullied no matter how big or small he was (and what that person could possibly become) looked funny in the trailers, but I saved that money for another movie as I thought they likely showed all the good stuff in the trailers or just wouldn’t be funny (esp. if the best parts were in the trailer…)
So one day I’m checking out what’s on and I got the chance to watch it on HBO in full before it came up on my ‘Q’.
It was mildly funny but a good laugh, in jokes as well as storyline (much more so than Ghostbusters was).
The Rock plays Bob Stone very computer generated obese student with a small girly voice from what I remember. He contacts his old school football hero Calvin, who is now an accountant. Meanwhile there’s someone that is following Bob around that he’s a bad guy or some such.
The reunion is well worth the watch and it put more of a smile on my face than the rest did especially the
“You look like a black Will Will Smith’ line
You could call this an action comedy and maybe is why it worked more than most comedies. Who is the Black Badger?
In parts Kevin Hart reminds me of a badger but also a hyena the way he screams like a girl, that alone gives me a laugh.
