WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Back in high school, Bob Stone (Johnson) used to be an overweight and socially awkward geek who was constantly picked on by bullies. Twenty years later, he’s a lethal CIA agent who’s coming home for his high school reunion, and bumps into Calvin Joyner (Hart), formerly the most popular kid in school and is now a mild-mannered accountant who misses the glory days. Claiming to be on a top-secret mission, Bob enlists Calvin’s help on an adventure that will see both of them getting involved in shoot-outs, double-crosses and high-octane espionage…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The pairing of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson could prove to have extremely thrilling and extremely funny consequences in the latest comedy from the director of Dodgeball and We’re The Millers.
